The Riddick by danceman The Riddick by danceman
Alright. What I wanted to achieve with this picture was a very Alien world theme, hence the almost glowing blue-ish touch.
The eyes are made by myself, orginal eyes were too bland and since Riddicks eyes are made more prominent in the sequel(chronicles of riddick) I wanted to just that. The eyes are definately the part of this manip which took the most time to get the correct shine job on :)

The pic itself werent exactly optimal, quite grainy but I found that wasnt such a bad thing in the end!

As usual, if you dont have sane brightness/gamme levels on your comp this pic will look 100% craptastic. If it still does at a normal level... so be it hehe ;)

Cheers

Technically it is a photo but I made so many adjustments it might as not as well be. Original was a grainy mess of epic weirdness.

Thank you so much for your comment. Made all the hours spent into making it look presentable worth it!

I am so damn thankful of the nice comments and the favourites. I mean, I could never have hoped this would ever get even a shred of the attention its got. You are awesome, and we're all fans of the Riddick.

We do not fear the dark!

Nice picture.

I didn't like the genre/universe shift Chronicles did (went from hard scifi to... dungeons and dragons in space.)

You did pretty good. Grainy kinda helps gives character here.

Use several layers of different opacity/brightness/contrast and glow. I am sure there is better way of doing it but it does the trick :D
