Illustration of Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty from "Blade Runner"

Sketch of the legendary Rutger Hauer as the replicant Roy Batty from Ridley Scott’s masterpiece “Blade Runner” during his climactic “…tears in the rain” speech in the film. Originally written by Ridley Scott and David Peoples, apparently Rutger Hauer edited the speech significantly without either’s input delivering the new lines and entering film history.

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

This is a detailed portion of the portrait where you can see the intaglio pattern that creates this sketch. The details are built up using over dozens of layers of custom intaglio patterns and brushwork to realize the character’s likeness.
