This image is my first elaborated artwork based on the 'Captain Orion Adventures' story universe. It features Captain Orion in heroic conflict with an Aloyian Hawkbeast which has kidnapped a native alien girl. Captain Orion's story yet has to be told but in my mind he already had some great adventures.

Because of it's unconventional technique, this artwork received quite some attention from the online community. Pixologic, the creators of ZBrush, use 'Saving the Alien Girl' in their marketing. The image was featured in 3D World and Art Scene International magazine. An extensive making of was published in Digital Art Masters Vol. 4 from Focal Press. The creation of the image is also documented in detail in my CG Challenge Thread.
