Description The concept of this artwork was inspired by the famous movie Blade Runner (starring Harrison Ford) in which, you can see amazing futuristic cityscapes, which are define today as one of the most classic Matte Painting images from the old times. I always was fascinated by these old school Matte Painting techniques. These amazing artists was working on huge glass canvas with nothing else than pencils, brushes and oil painting. What a different world!
