This looks epic! Riddick is definitely one of my favorite characters in movies ever. He's just such a compelling individual that morally you should dislike but you can't really. Honestly I think this fits him perfectly. You definitely did a great job.

Very interesting choice of style here!!!  The character is very recognizable, however I think the image lacks any action or movement commonly associated with the character!!!  Nevertheless, best of luck in the completion!!!

Thank you for the comment :D srsly no one comments on anything anymore...

Anyway the point of this poster was not to convey an action or a single movement as far as being representative for Riddick in the aspect of pure action and movement which he does frequently and often.

It is more meant to appeal to the lesser shown side of Riddick that talks.

He is a man of sparse words, but he chooses them carefully.

Which is why I chose a simplistic typographic concept as opposed to a more gory action scene.

Also typography is something that looks aesthetically pleasing when it is in a large format such as a poster.

Sorry that was way to wordy but I do appreciate the critique nonetheless
and thanks for wishing me luck as well :)

You're quite welcome.  Now to thank you for that awesome breakdown 
And background on your piece!!!  It allowed me to see your work in an entirely different light, the one in which you intended it to be seen in!!!  It would really be cool if the artist could submit an analysis or description along with the entry!!!  Again I wish you the best of luck in the competition, just have fun with it
