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

"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... here's a painting inspired by Wong Kar-Wai's 2046. The color palette of this film is very beautiful, a lot of deep reds, sea greens, and yellows. This particular character is the "delayed-reaction android" (played by the gorgeous Faye Wong.)

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.

More from the MOMENTS series

EDIT 04/22/14: Did a significant repaint of this! Wasn't happy with a lot of the details from the previous version.

This is beautiful. Have you seen Age of Ultron yet? Because if you painted Paul Bettany's character (no spoilers ;)) it would be beautiful. :)

It's supremely beautiful and touching I hear several songs when in my mind when I see this piece. With apologies to all others, I don't believe I'll find a better piece on deviant art any time soon.

the strokes of the background are somehow perfect in this piece, adding a motion in the stillness.

(not sure how this movie never crossed my radar, added to queue.)
