Well, today’s digitally-edited cyberpunk painting actually exists in three different versions.
This is quite fitting, because I’d originally planned to make a fan art painting of Rachel from “Blade Runner” (a film with at least five versions) but quickly decided to make an original painting instead – however, this ended up lending the painting more of a “film noir” atmosphere than some of my other recent cyberpunk paintings. This painting also ended up being a lot more detailed than I had expected.
At one point during the editing process, I strongly considered converting this picture into a sepia image in order to make the line art stand out more. However, although I made a sepia copy (albeit with varying levels of brightness between the foreground and background), I eventually decided that it lacked the visual variety of the original and replaced it with the original again shortly after completing this post.
As usual, this painting (and the alternative sepia and line art versions ) are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.
