"All those moments will be lost in time, like… tears… in rain. Time to die…"

Blade Runner (1982)

Another one of the closing piece from my solo show this summer, MOMENTS! Inspired by Roy Batty's beautiful final scene (partially unscripted by the actor, Rutger Hauer!) I think anyone who's seen the film will vividly recall this part.

I nearly died working on this painting, it was so difficult, but I’m happy with how it finally turned out! Painted with references on a Cintiq 21UX tablet in Adobe Photoshop.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Hauer.

Came to deviantart for another good roy batty art, but found this minutes later and its just amazing! would buy a print of this.

Would love to buy a print of this as well. No one else has captured this movie moment as well as you.

Actor Rutger Hauer, who starred in 1982's Blade Runner, has died at the age of 75.…
How would one go about getting a framed version of this onto their home wall? Can you like, buy it somewhere?

Just watched this movie for the first time and while not overwhelmed by it, this piece of art showcasing one of the best parts feels perfect.
I would love to be able to buy a canvas print of this. Any chance of a second pressing?
Just to let you know they are using your art again. Hope it's with your consent !…

One of the most powerful scenes in one of the most powerful films ever made :D
This picture captures the moment perfectly.
Alice, I absolutely love this piece!  Sadly, I missed out on the run over at Bottleneck.  Do you have any more of these prints available?  I must have one!

Thank you so much in advance.

I think you've captured a powerful scene quite well. The colors fit very well with both the original look of the shot and the mood of it.
You have a way of emphasizing important parts and and keeping others in the background. Good work.
