The 8th EVIL EX by FooRay The 8th EVIL EX by FooRay
Name: Ryan Riddleman

Rating: Creepy

Age: 24

Fun Fact: Cant play actual instruments but is WAY into AIR Guitar.

Not as fun fact: TOTAL creepy stalker dude.

EVEN LESS FUN FACT: uses bad ass air guitaring to bewilder on lookers opening up for slash attacks with his creepy dude claws.

Back Story:

Ryan Lives a few blocks from Ramona's dad. He met her when she went on her "wilderness sabbatical" they only met briefly but he thought she was so Metal in that small meeting that he quickly became obsessed with her, decided for himself that they shared a moment, and they were both "madly in love". When she finally left her dad's place to go back to Scott, Ryan made up his mind then and there to do whatever it took to get her back... dead or alive.

this is my entry for the 8th Evil Ex contest.. i hope you dig it..

I had a lotta fun doing him in both styles.. i struggled with the colors but i think it turned out decent in the end.



made it in the top 25! thats awesome. had tons of fun with this one so im glad it atleast made it this far! wish me luck! ^__^

Hunter-y! Epic style though, you pulled off the SP style really well and the transition from yours to the SP style is suh-mooth.
As in, Ryan still looks like himself in both styles.

Pretty awesome, man x}

When this guy died, did he become the "Hunter" from Left 4 Dead?

Ah the wilderness sabatical i always wondered what happened there
Kittengrl39 Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010
I really like how you did him in both styles. Their story fits in with the feel and timeline of the series, too.
Hincaru Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
yea, I looked through them all, this is by far my favorite in the contest :)
LeAcme Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010
HOLY FUCKING YEAH! :D Congrats pal! :)
aMiNatorsINK Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Personally, I think yours is the best of the remaining. It has the style, the feel, the attitude. I love the air guitar spin... I could see some great O'malley humor written along to that.
TheIronisT Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010
Congrats on making it to the top 25. I hope you win the damn thing. I'm curious though, how long did this piece take from concept to finished colors?
FooRay Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010  Professional Artist
the concept was something i sketched pretty fast.. ill have to scan the first sketch i did it was awful. but coming up with the look i actually tried to come up with a style for the character cause all the exes had their own look and they hadnt had a grunge rock look for any of them.. my first idea as others seemed to have was to draw scott.. its logical to think hed be the 8th ex but then i thought i should really come up with something new since the contest was to design not to re draw an existing design.

the actual piece it self was prolly a two day piece i think i drew both on one day and colored them on another day... actually i think i drew them on seperate days. i def knew i wanted to draw both styles from the beginning i just wasnt sure what it was gonna look like in the end.

anyway WOW way long answer to a simple question.. but i hope that cleared it up either way heh.
TheIronisT Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010
Naw your answer is good, I entered my self and as you can tell made no noticeable progress. I just got a tablet and was curious about your coloring techniques because they're on point. But thanks for the reply, I hope you take first.
1pez Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010
Yea! Finalist! Congrats man. I was hoping you'd get in.
jerizle Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010
I definitely feel ur in the top 3 bro, sweet work. Hope you win :dance: I think ur 2 versions was a kool idea. My evil ex drawing kinda has a similar street style.
Kanduli Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I mistaken him as a Hunter...

A Hunter for evil ex...

We should have a Tank then?
