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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
So here is my vision of Riddick battling for desperate survival
Used Riddick asset pack 3 and 4, as well as a view images form the trailer
Im a young artist and still have muchhh to learn, i still use a lot of photo-references for my ideas, i know every successful artist dose or has done in the past, its how we learn, you cant expect to paint realistically if you dont study the world around you first, and the only way to do that is by using images or photo reference and incorporating them into your imagination, and after a while you wont need photos anymore!! thats where im hoping to be in about 10 years from now but anyways, im particularly proud of this one because i was able to fuse my imagination with the asset pack images nicely together
Corel Painter 4, gosh i need to upgrade No texture brushes, just basic round tip thanks for checking out my design and i wish every one good luck!!
and since we cant sign our pices, according to the rules, i will sign it below lol
