Prior to the release of Denis Villeneuve's sequel to Ridley Scott's classic film, Roger Deakins stunning cinematography inspired me to create this scene (hinted at in trailer) involving Ryan Gosling’s ‘Officer K’ and Ana De Armas’ ‘Joi’ embracing.
Designed to be a companion piece to 'Downtown Deckard' my intention was to echo the atmosphere and and palette of Roy Batty’s ‘tears in rain’ scene from Ridley Scott’s original masterpiece.
The 'Variant' poster was created to reflect the diverse colour palette of 2049 v the mirroring of the colour palette from the original in the first compositon. The blues of the City v the oranges of Deckard's Vegas hideout.
Painted by hand digitally using a Wacom Intuos Pro and Photoshop CC using brushes from Kyle T Webster's Megapack.
Variant is available to BUY HERE.
