Abduction, Steven Hägg-Ståhlberg (2D)

Title: Abduction
Name: Steven Hägg-Ståhlberg
Country: Malaysia
Software: Maya, mental ray, Photoshop

I had this idea while I was working on the "Journey Begins" challenge, but I chose to go with a different idea then. Now I felt like finishing it as well. I used some reference photos, taken by myself, I'll post them below.

The expression on that guys face is priceless aswell as her expression as she is in shock that he isn't trying to grab her and save her lol!

Tip: Using reference is not a weakness. It's actually a sign of strength.

Another excellent piece of art! I love the depth, the colours and the lighting, they give a special mood to the composition.And the water is absolutely fantastic, is it paint or fluid simulation?
Just a comment on the skin of the girl, shouldn't she look abit more wet,with water drops running along her juicy isoparms? like the man's chest perhaps?
a dozen stars from me

I've been waiting for this image. Ever since you posted the first wip of it for the Journey Begins challenge, I'd kept my fingers crossed you'd finish it. Not only was it such a great concept, but your skill has given it an absolute wow factor. Aside from the fairy bride on the swing, this is by far my favourite piece in your gallery. The story telling is just fabulous, their expressions, all the subtle touches of movement. I absolutely love it. Reminds me yet again why you're one of THE guys in this business.

May I ask whether you used any 3d base on the figures? I know you're probably capable of doing that without any 3d model, I'm curious more than anything, the volume in the torso and arm of the man is incredible.

A very good use of 3D/2D mix ... Great work !

I did use some 3d, but not in the characters, just some of the water-droplets. Here are the various references I used:
