OMG! I am reading Dune right now and I am in love with it!! This is exactly how I imagined the Freman to be like! The movie got it all so wrong! An amazing piece of art!!

For start, anything Dune is incredible [more or less]. But this is wonderful, you can really feel everything going on.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Paul got blue eyes, be he lived on Dune more than Jessica had.

Very nice, but I think a better choice would have been to go with a non-1984 Dune version of ornithopters. I find their interpretation bulky and less attractive than the miniseries.

Those ornithopters aren't like the movie. I remember them distinctly. It seems to be the artist's own imagining.

Love the Fremens Kris.

Thats a beatiful picture and i am a huge fan of Frank Herberts movie Dune.. its a great movie and the sequal "Children of Dune" was also wonderfully done. You should post a few more pictures if you could of Dune. Maybe of the Great Spice Worms or of the battles between the Baron and the Duke in the beginning of the story. I would really like 2 see you draw a picture of one of the worms though. Neways great picture. I havent seen any pictures of Dune on deviant art and i suspect that there are very few. Nice job with the detail and how you capture the life on the planet with the spice miners and the freemon.

Great detail and composition, I'm not familiar with the characters so can't say if it's a good likeness [although judging from previous comment it is]. I really like the use of colour to emphasise the foreground figures :)

Don't you have to have permission to use the charas before you run prints? Sorry, might be an ignorant question...
