Riddick - Rule the Dark Entry 2 by FoxHound1984 Riddick - Rule the Dark Entry 2 by FoxHound1984
Hey guys!

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:

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!

Good luck to all who entered!

Hey man! Sorry for the late reply :)

I could do an animation with him, but to be brutally honest, after the final contest results...I'm a little Riddick-ed out of it :( It was a big bummer not making the final 3.

With that said, I am working on a cool Gremlin's related, animated project. Check my latest journal for more info! :)

Isn't late. I wasn't
here anyways, just came online! XD

Don't be upset, man! 
I thought you all made it for the fun and not for the money...
But I like Riddick, I saw the movies ages ago,
and now he returned! After the contest I've
even drawn a picture inspired by it! ^.^)
(not online yet)

I saw the Gremlin, but your watchers
would be totally amazed if you would make
an animation!!! (you have all material ready,
why don't turn it into something even more
BIGGER? You could do it later, if you are
not in the mood, but don't throw it away!!!) :3

Thank you for the words of encouragement! I'll definitely see what I can do :)

Not a big deal, bro! :iconbrohugplz:
It's about fun and ejoyment
when you do art. Not the result.

If it would be so, DA would
have only 2000 people
registered. Who are pleased
by the result! ;D
