"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.STEP-BY-STEP PAINTING PROGRESS:
