The Riddick by benjonesart The Riddick by benjonesart
I know I don't have an ice cubes chance in hell to win this thing just hope to maybe just maybe get in the top 25. I didn't use any stock piece like I knew a lot of people would and went all frank miller on this one. It was a pain but the love for the movies kinda kept me going. think this one took me about 13 hours or so with a mix of sumi and pro black ink on 11x17 Bristol Board, all done with brush and nib. Hope you guys like


Update: Well I didn't make the top 25, not going to teeth gnash it too much ill just try to sell it.

Wow! This is intense!

I have two entries in this contest,I don't think I have a chance either, but it was fun producing something I was always a fan of.:)

I can see this in the top 25. Awesome work!

I'm a huge comic book fan so I think this style (Miller-like) complements Riddick's personality and the world he lives in well. Its great work!

yeah I thought so to, thought it would play to his dark nature ect. Hope the others believe that too but I have a feeling those nice photoshop paintings will get the win...unfortunately. B&W art doesn't really get enough respect as a medium

I hear ya, I submitted a couple pieces myself but I have a sneaking suspicion that the photo-realism is what they were looking for... then again who knows. Regardless, its nice to compete. Great motivation!
