I figured I would enter this as my second entry. I definitely do not think it's considered a deviation, seeing as my other one is the complete/rendered/composited scene. Though it may not be a serious contender, due to the lack of color and a background, etc. I still wanted to share it with you all
I kind of like the look of this AO pass, it's simple, but it shows off all of the model's details. I loved working on Riddick and the crazy, critters from the trailer. Over 2 weeks of non-stop modeling, rendering and texturing. I am very proud of how it came out, and I definitely think it's my best work yet!
I hope you enjoy it too! And too all of the others that entered the competition, the best of luck to you!
Software used: Autodesk 3ds MAX Pixologic Zbrush Photoshop CS3
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!
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.
My entry for the Rule the Dark contest. I've been twiddling with this for a while and am decently happy with it now. I'm actually a pretty big fan of Riddick... though not nearly as much as my mom. It's kind of creepy, actually... lol.
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.
