RIDDICK ARISE by AlexanderLevett RIDDICK ARISE by AlexanderLevett
I gave my all with this final entry into the Riddick contest and all of this is hand drawn from references. This challenged me in every way and I hope you like the finished piece. There are still details that I want to work in if I can find the time but I wanted to share this with you all now. All of this is drawn in Photoshop and any additional references used belong to me.

EDIT: As this has come up a few times I wanted to reiterate that this is not a photo and is all drawn.

Thank you, I actually prefer the more blue version as it is more dynamic. I thought it really captured Riddick's character.

Man, I'm sorry. I was really rooting for you. This is amazing, I don't get how the others, especially that comic thing (its crap compared to this) got btter than you. You have amazing talent. Don't ever leave it.

I know I and many others thought it would do better, but some just don't like my kind if realism. I cannot begrudge the winners as the judge preferred them, but thank you o our support.

No problem. I absolutely love your submissions and you have amazing talent. How Twohy didn't see this is beyond me. By the way, which Riddick film is ur favorite? I personally HUGLEY enjoyed Chronicles of Riddick Unrated. I don't understand why so many people hated on it, it was such an awesome film. I guess you're going through what Twohy went through when his art was rejected.

AlexanderLevett Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2013
Thanks again. I am still waiting to see Riddick, but I really like both Pitch Black & Chronicles. Pitch Black was masterfully styled with some great cinematography and great ideas. Chronicles had such a great universe encompassing storyline as well as plenty of action and did not deserve the criticism it received.

Very true good sir. Riddick is much more than just some convict guy who always for some reason gets stuck on desolate planets and killing alien beasts. I hope "Riddick" does well in theaters so Twohy and Vin can continue where Chronicles left off and take us to the Underverse (very clever name in my opinion) and then to Furya. But yeah you had first place in my eyes. Peace out XD.

Man, i thought you would have definitely won this contest. i know how it feels to work on something for hours upon hours, and not win something, but don't get down man, your art is truly inspiring for many artists in here. and all in all you have a great piece for your portfolio.

cheers man

Thats the way things work out if David Twohy did not like it, nothing I or others think will make a difference. The winners were picked and deserve to be there as they are each great in their own way. Thanks

why this piece didn't get you first place is beyond me.....  sometimes I feel art contests are rigged.... in this case, I gotta believe it.  I had lots of ideas on this project, but something about the head hunter guy and Riddick is what got my ideas going...  I kept looking through the entrees and nobody was doing an image with riddick in chains - when I looked through the entrees and saw your image I said - first place, stop the contest....  my problem was, I like to work from photos and I looked and looked and couldn't find any pictures of the monster aliens - so when I saw your's, I was just amazed how you got such good detail on everything and I couldn't find sh!t - lol..... YOURS WAS THE BEST, YOU GOT ROBBED!

AlexanderLevett Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
I would never believe these are rigged, it is just David Twohy did not like my work, that is the simple answer. Thanks for supporting my work. I like the fact that you chose a unique standpoint, it really shows the thought you put into your work. For the monster I paused the trailer to get the look of it as it was in their for a second and the details I just made up. I feel terrible for not placing but the three finalists truly deserve to be there because they were chosen to be there. Thanks again

I just wanted to say "thank you" for the kind words you gave my entry but more so I truly feel you were robbed. CLEARLY this piece was the best piece of the group. I don't know how you DIDN'T win first place.

It has been pretty hard today. Thank you so much for your support, I had such hope with my entry. I have always looked to support anyone who loves art and any advice I can offer please ask. This is still only a hobby for me and I have a dream to make a career from my work one day.

I have to say for the record to all of you that are artistically inclined... it does not matter how the end result was achieved.... it matters that someone was resourceful enough to make magic with whatever tool was available. This entry is gallery art material regardless!
