THE "RIDDICK RULE THE DARK FAN ART CONTEST" ("CONTEST") BEGINS AT 12:00:00 AM PACIFIC TIME ("PT") ON JULY 18, 2013 AND ENDS AT 11:59:59 PM (PT) ON AUGUST 16, 2013
This is a speed photo manipulation done while watching the Riddick Extended cut from the Riddick Trilogy Addition. LOVE THAT MOVIE. Wow. 2 hours 14 minutes of pure pleasure. I had to time it because otherwise I knew I would just fuss and fuss over a piece of fan art and I don't normally do fan art but I just LOVE Riddick and Vin D. so this was just too tempting.

Unrestricted splat brushes
Textures a simple texture brush.
Some lighting and some elbow grease. This is what 4 years of teaching yourself photoshop will get you. I love it but I know I need to go back to college for an art degree. I solemnly swear if I win this competition I will go back to college and get an Art Degree. Otherwise I shall keep poking at it. (I am selling my work for cd and book covers and such but I haven't made a sincere effort at going pro do to my lack of advanced training.) Oh but some of these works are SO SO SO good. Not likely. Cheers all I hope you like it too!
PS I think the poetic irony that we are making artwork of/for a character that could never likely even see or appreciate it is beautiful.
