"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.

Wow, I'm impressed, you're obviously really talented. And in addition to your talent, you have very good cinematic tastes. 2046 is a deep, intense, and touching movie, which is a perfect sequel of the superb "In the mood for love" of the same director. Keep going, I love your work, like everyone else. ;)

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