The Eyes Of God

Hey folks!

It was another busy week last week, but not without some interesting warm-ups to upload here for the Gallery to be up to date :nod:

As I've often mentioned, I like to play different movies/TV series/music while I work in my studio as it helps get the creativity flowing. Last week, I turned again to that gem of a film that is "Blade Runner 2049" for some inspiration and boy, did I find it :D There's a lot to be said about studying cinematography and the way a director will choose his angles and compositions, which is why I took some still frames and tried to give them my own spin to play with lighting and effects. 

The first choice to depict was Jared Leto's amazing Niander Wallace character which, as in the previous film with Tyrell, has a few appearances but very poignant at that. His eyes are particularly haunting which I believe must've been the intention all along and what I tried to replicate here ;)

As usual, I thank you for your constant support and encouragement and will see you very soon!

 There are some who can't stand Jared Leto villains, but his wrongdoers have - to date - given me the creeps in exactly the right way (both young Wallace AND The Joker*).

 *Mr Leto may have gone completely over the top as far as The Method goes, but he nails the Madness spot-on so far as I can see.

His talent for acting is definitely undeniable, though I'd say maybe his over-the-topness has more to do with direction than anything else. Villeneuve was able to extract a very cool villain out of him, while Ayers... not so much.

 Well in all fairness that might be for the best, given SUICIDE SQUAD wasn't even Mr J's film!:D (Big Grin)

To me, that looks like Jacob from Far Cry 5.

BR2049 is only the second movie I've gone to see in the theatre on back-to-back nights - the first was The Matrix.

Enjoyed the illo.

For me, the whole film shows such a love of filmmaking that it's pretty unique amongst the 'money grab' pit that Hollywood is. Glad I could make it a bit of justice with my own take :)

A pretty lame villain, but that didn't stop you from making an interesting piece.

:D I believe he needed a bit more screen time to be more interesting. But I?m glad you liked my take on him!
