I'm not the biggest Riddick fan in the universe, but I did enjoy the movies (other than watching Pitch Black for the first time when I was younger, and had the crap scared out of me).
I knew when I started this that I didn't want to create the image everyone was going to create...so I ended up going in a stylistic rather than realistic direction. I knew I wanted Riddick in silhouette, and I wanted to try drawing the aliens (as I haven't done any dragons for a while and I kinda miss it).
Done with Prismacolors and Copics, with some touching up in Photoshop. I had to scan it in four pieces :/
Im not the best at digital work but I can color! so I used my comic style and threw Riddick into a battle at the foot of a cave. don't know much about the creatures...hopefully they are similar to the movie I think the cave view came out nice and I feel its original.
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.
