The Love of an Android by alicexz The Love of an Android by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE HERE
Limited edition of 40



"They might want to laugh, but the smile would be slow to come. They might want to cry, but the tears wouldn't well up till the next day..."
2046 (2004)

Continuing my sci-fi(ish) series... painting inspired by Wong Kar-Wai's beautiful 2046. The color palette of this film is has a lot of deep reds, sea greens, and yellows, so I painted accordingly. (Quite a difficult color scheme to use without it all becoming a garish mess, LEMME TELL YOU...) (or maybe it still is a garish mess OTL)

This particular character is the delayed-reaction android (played by the gorgeous Faye Wong) and the quote above is very relevant to her character... well, just watch the movie!

Eventually I want to finish pieces from Wong Kar-Wai's entire repertoire! This was a closing piece from my solo show MOMENTS.

Painted with references on a Cintiq 21UX tablet in Adobe Photoshop.

Maybe the model's face is just a little too perfect  but this is a really nicely executed image.
