Endless Streets by andreasrocha Endless Streets by andreasrocha
Watching my portfolio I can definitely say I'm more of a Lord of the Rings/Dungeons&Dragons kind of guy. However, there are 2 sci-fi movies which had a huge impact on me when I watched them as a kid during the 80s: "Star Wars" (original trilogy) and "Blade Runner". I remember being completely blown away the first time I saw "A New Hope". "Blade Runner", on the other hand, was a bit different. As I watched it over and over again I slowly started to realize the masterpiece it was. What I admire most are the moods...the constant rain and darkness, the blue/green hues, the lonesomeness, the smoke, the juxtaposition of different architectural styles, the soundtrack...everything just brilliant! One might think that some of these aspects would equal discomfort, but they are portrayed in such a romantic way that they become captivating and soothing.
So, concluding...this painting is an homage (another one) to this superb movie.
I would love to hear your thoughts and let me know what can be improved and I will certainly take it into consideration and try to update it.

I like how the ground looks wet, as if it had recently rained.  The lanterns are nice as well.  ^^  Great job.

Wow, all I can say is I want to get my boots on and start exploring the streets as soon as possible.  Couldn't agree more with what you said concerning Star Wars and Blade Runner.

This is amazing! It's got so many of the concepts and techniques I am trying to teach myself in terms of perspective and lighting. I would love to know how you approach a composition like this, but the process link is broken. Would you be able to re-link me please?
