Wet Dream by cabroon Wet Dream by cabroon
You might not know that this is a homage to one of the greatest topless scene from the movies. Being totally honest, I didn´t saw that movie. I just know the scene from some "top ten" list I saw some time ago and I decided to dig in a bit more.

There are times when everything falls perfectly in place to give birth to something fantastic. As if the universe is in perfect harmony in the right time.

When I saw the scene (edited without the guy wanking in the bathroom -watch the scene and you´ll know what I´m talking about) I immediately fell in love with her.

She looked perfect. Timeless and perfect. Even the bikini doesn´t look old or dated to this day. Her hair doesn´t give away the year of the movie because it is wet.
The dreamy floaty fantasy feel you get with the slow motion of the scene, the heavenly sprinkler mist aura, the way the light hits behind her giving her that ethereal angelic look,  And her boobs.... Perfection!
Oh I forgot to mention the name of the movie: Fast times at ridgemont high.
Actress name? Phoebe Cates. Google her. I´ll wait.

...............................................................

Now, do you understand what i´m talking about?

So a long time ago I watched Ferngully (pre-pocahontas/avatar animated movie) and there is a fairy (krysta) with an 80´s fluffy hairstyle. Nothing special.
Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut  .........   there is a scene -that damn scene- where they go to an underwater grotto, and she gets her hair wet... she gives that look with puppy eyes, and at that precise moment something cliked inside my head. Something made a connection so deep into my psique that I couldn´t get that image out of my mind. I had the image so clearly visualized, that putting it into paper (paper..PFFFT hahaha!) felt so natural and effortless that it was a pleasure working on it.

It started as a simple sketch that took a life of its own and didn´t let me go until it was finished. Hence the sloppy lineart. I experimented a lot with filters. Never before have I made a wet skin look, and boy!, I had fun!. I used the bevel and emboss filter for the wet skin from photoshop. Some motion blurring for the background rain, some blurring on the background. Noise filter for the splashing water, soft and hard brushes for the brigth areas. Different painting techinique. Almost all the girl is painted in one layer. some other layers for the glow, the water and the lineart.
This artwork feels so much more natural, authentic, organic I might say, less mechanized and more spontaneous in the way it began and evolved until the final result you have before your eyes.
If you compare it with the movie scene, my depiction is a lot more saturated and colors have more contrast. I felt happy working on it and I am happy to share it with all of you.

This the only and final version. No topless version.
Finally I took it out of my system.


Enjoy!

Cabroon Out.

I'm kind of curious to watch this scene now, it sounds like it was quite important for you and I always find that kind of stuff really interesting, even if I don't personally know the person who's telling the story about it.

Nice picture, too.

Who could possibly NOT know this greatest topless scene in cinematic history?  (Halle Berry in Swordfish solid second).  Phoebe is definitely one of the most beautiful women ever.  Great job! :)

Some git on Facebook was saying that the luscious Ms Cates wasn't attractive. I selflessly offered that, if he ever found himself troubled by the unwanted attentions of a Phoebe Cates doppelganger, that I would take her off his hands :D
