I gave my all with this final entry into the Riddick contest and all of this is hand drawn from references. This challenged me in every way and I hope you like the finished piece. There are still details that I want to work in if I can find the time but I wanted to share this with you all now. All of this is drawn in Photoshop and any additional references used belong to me.

EDIT: As this has come up a few times I wanted to reiterate that this is not a photo and is all drawn.

2013 Digital Painting for Riddick: Rule the Dark

This started out as a rough sketch on black paper using Colored Pencil (my favorite traditional medium), I then transferred it to digital for a complete 'repaint'. Had a lot of fun with this challenge, watched all the movies before working on it to get in the zone!

Entry for the Riddick: Rule the Dark Contest. To me, one of my favorite aspects of Riddick is the way he rides the edge between good and bad, the dark and the light, so I wanted to capture that idea in my design.

"It's an animal thing." Watched from Pitch Black to Chronicles of Riddick including the anime while painting this. Happy the way it came out. Enjoy. =}

EDIT: Well here is the new illustration! Hope you like.

Hey guys!

I wanted to make an alternate version of my earlier submission. Where my previous rendition was very limited in hues and tonalities (simillar to how the dark is approached in the films) with very deliberate muted colors, I wanted to experiment with a more playful, less contrained, colorful pallette and some harsher lighting for my second submission. I also wanted it to feel more painterly than the previous render. I like both, the previous submission looks more CG, the original has a ton more detail. Where this one feels more like a concept art painting, it's much rougher, but that can also be nice.

Here's my other (original & main) entry:
fav.me/d6igk1u

Again, this whole scene exists in 3D. I modeled everything, hand painted the textures, and lit, rendered and composited the scene. I might do an animation in the future.

But first, a nice weekend's break after 2 long, hard weeks of work!

Good luck to all who entered!

This is my entry for the Riddick contest.

I started a couple days after the contest was announced. I had been working on it for two weeks but did not like the direction it was going. Then my computer crashed and I had to format and restore the whole system. That took about another week. I decided to start over since I didn't like how the illustration was going. With about a week left Photoshop decided to stop working. All the brushes would not function the way they were supposed to. After about 3 days I figured out it was another program causing the problem. This was after installing Photoshop several times and changing settings on my computer. So now I had 4 days left and only a rough sketch of my entry. I was going to throw in the towel. I then decided to see how much I could get done in the time remaining. I'm pretty happy considering the time constraint. I wish I had more time to finish. I probably will not bother to work on it at a later date.
