"...like tears in rain..."

Rutger Oelsen Hauer, 23 January 1944 – 19 July 2019

I couldn't help paying tribute to the passing of the amazing Mr. Hauer last week, whom I discovered through my dad's love of the film 'Wedlock'. He later became immortal in my mind as Roy Batty, that replicant capable of making us question our humanity. His committment to the craft and willingness to work on an astounding variety of genres is something I aspire to in my very own path as an artist.

I've illustrated this scene from 'Blade Runner' many, many times and it never loses its poignancy; a testament to Hauer's immense talent.

As usual, I hope you enjoy this piece and thank you for your constant support!

Nic.-

I'm awfully late to the wake on this one, but all I can say is beautiful.

  It's sad to bid farewell to one of my favourite actors, but good to see him inspire such tributes.

Like before, this is perhaps one of my favorite scenes in film period. It’s power, it’s message. The performance. Fantastic job capturing it and the man who delivered it perfectly.

Likewise, what makes this drawing a representation of a human? I mean, our understanding is very important, a valuable trait from humans.
