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.

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.)

Lovely picture, :) especially how the colours reflect her mood in the image and that of the film,                                                                         which is one of my favourite films by Wong Kar-wai.

I have met 3 of them. The girls are soft and gentile. They are our children. He is a Warrior and said. "They do let us out much" I know them, I miss them. I have so much to learn and they would make excellent friends and family :)
