"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.

Composure was designed around the fact that Riddick never loses his nerve. He is always capable of handling a tough situation, and even if things get out of hand he will find a way to survive. The colors are based off of Riddick's night vision with a bit of orange/yellow for a nice focal point. Hope you enjoy and good luck to everyone else submitting!

My entry for the Riddick: Rule the Dark Contest. There is so much I would like to keep working on for this, but it seems the deadline has caught up to me! Either, way, Im pretty happy with the turn out. I tried a lot of different techniques with this and I hope I get some good feedback. Thanks for looking!

I wanted to change the lighting and atmosphere from my other entry and go for a far cooler palette and take it to a darker night scene. I have added a lot of additional rain/water details and I hope you like the changes. I wanted to keep the other drawing as I like the striking difference in feel between the two.

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:

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!

So I'm feeling a bit ambitious and wanted to submit 2 pieces for the contest. I mean, I really love the character and can't wait to see this film! Everybody's artwork so fat has been stellar! I love competition... It gives me reason to improve my own skills. I'm just honored to be among such talented artists! And I honestly wish the best for everyone!

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.
