edit: print enabled (pending approval), thanks for the requests!

Hi

This is a piece I did for a cover for the recent issue of ImagineFX magazine featuring some material on Syd Mead, the industrial designer who worked on Blade Runner. I was asked to paint an image paying homage to Syd Mead and his design work for the movie.

The magazine includes a step-by-step that I wrote. In the process I used some stock photography from mjranum-stock ([link]) for pose and lighting reference. Marcus graciously gave me permission to have the reference photo reproduced in the article. I haven't received my comp copy of the magazine yet so I haven't actually seen the writeup.

Hope you like!

I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE COP CARS WERE SO AWESOME. THIS COULD'VE BEEN IN THE MOVIE.  GREAT WORK ON CAPTURING THE VIBE OF THE DAMP CROWDED CITY.  THE FEMALE BLADE RUNNER IS A GREAT TOUCH TOO. MAYBE IN PART 2???

I like her and love the art to the nth degree, but Rick is the best. Harrison Ford as Rick, now and forever.

Francis Tsai, just read the article in a european publication "Fantasy Art", all I can say: gorgeous! I hope one day with a lot of practice I might reach at least half of the skill you have!

Fantastic piece. You really captured the essence of Mead's design work while maintaining some creative independence. I am a big fan of this genre and also of Marcus's work. I don't even use mjranum-stock but i have been a watcher for years just because i love seeing his beautiful compositions.

This looks stellar, Mead written all over it. It would be awesome if they used this as a concept piece for the Blade Runner sequel that's being written.
