Rule the Dark

Full digital painting, inspired by the upcoming film Riddick. Semi-finalist in the Rule the Dark art contest.

I was a big fan of Pitch Black way back when Vin Diesel was just an up-and-coming action star, and although Chronicles of Riddick fell short of its ambitious goals, I’m game to check out the new film which looks to be a back-to-the-roots effort for Vin and writer/director David Twohy. Anyway I’ve also loaded up some process shots for fun, aiming for a very old school look as well as a somewhat sketchy final result, but I liked the way it turned out and didn’t want to overwork it. David Twohy himself judged the Rule the Dark contest, so it was cool to make it to the semi-finals.
