Riddick - Rule the Dark by FoxHound1984 Riddick - Rule the Dark by FoxHound1984
Hi guys!

Here's my Riddick Contest Entry! Please watch it FULL RES. Because it's not widescreen, it'll look funny unless you maximize it.

This competition has been a crazy one! There are so many great entries, it's really cool to see everyone's taken on our favourite Furyan.

I decided to do a full 3D scene with this guy. Everything you see has been modeled and built from scratch in either Zbrush or MAX, textured, lit and rendered. I then composited everything in Photoshop. Theoretically, I guess I could animated him if I wanted to :P

Here's a link to the untextured, models and scene (AO pass):

Here;s a link to the folder containing some of the WIP images:

I've been hard at work at this piece for 2 weeks straight. I started off wanting to do a strong, action scene and had made at least 7-8 previous 3D scenes, characters and compositions. All of which I developed, none of which I liked...

I decided to go for this composition, which is different from a lot of the action-oriented entries I've seen. I guess I wanted to show that Riddick really isn't too bothered by any of these strange creatures...seeing as he Rules the Dark. :)

It was a ton of fun working on this! Good luck to everyone that entered!!!!

Software used:
Pixologic Zbrush
Autodesk 3ds MAX
Adobe Photoshop CS3

Great work.  I actually like the colors on this one better than on your second entry.  Good luck.

Thank you! I do too :) I just wanted to experiment with the pallette and the saturation levels.

I think this is also closer to the way the dark looked in Pitch Black and how the rainy scenes in Rule the Dark look (at least from what I've seen in the trailers).
