We haven't heard anything from RIDDICK ever since the film secured an R rating back on Halloween, but just a few days ago director David Twohy took to his blog to give a little update on the process of post-production and how that's all going for him.  Included in his post on... post... was a picture of Twohy and a few special effects artists, the background of which plays host to a treatment of the movie's logo.

A bit blurry, a bit pixelly due to being a picture of a screen, and a whole lot of cool, you can check out the logo below and let us know what you think below that!

Here's to hoping we see a proper HD version soon - perhaps when a trailer drops? i would guess that the film, currently set to release "sometime in 2013," will arrive around fall.  Which, if my hypothesis proves true, would mean we'll see a trailer within the next few months.  Or so I can dream, anyway.

And while we're here, have a look at some concept art for RIDDICK done up in what is an absolutely fascinating art style.  I don't know what it's called, I don't know what it is - I just know that I like it.  A lot.  And gives a small but illustrative window into the shooting style we're going to get with the film.

Extra Tidbit: Anyone know what that sort of style might be called? Or the tools being used to create it?

This artwork is done by Charles Ratteray. He has a killer style. You can see some of his work on www.famousframes.com under his name. They rep some of the best in the film business. They post artwork from movies coming out on their Facebook and twitter if you want to keep up with that stuff.

Dunno, looks like they've taken some very dark black and white photos, darkened them even more, blurred the shit out of them, then sketched over everything with a white brush in Photoshop.

The art you're talking about

looks like Light Painting, or something similar.
Pretty cool stuff.

That somehow reminds me of the logo for Armageddon.
