Rain Dance by Namyr Rain Dance by Namyr
Official Riddick: Rule the Dark Entry

Media: Oil on Canvas
Dimensions: 18 x 24

Description: My own depiction of the character "Riddick" facing off against several creatures during a storm. I wanted to try and convey how both he and the creatures are considered "monsters hiding in the dark", both equally lethal. Sometimes survival comes down to the edge of a knife!
My media of choice is generally oil paints, but I also like that this painting is one of the more "primal" in the contest. Just the bare materials and hands. Decided I wanted to see if I could "survive" so many beautiful new age electronic paintings, since survival is kinda what the contest is geared towards.

There are so many wonderful pieces in this contest! Best of luck to everyone who entered! May the odds be ever in your favor!

The shadows also add a really nice sense of depth and contrast.
