Dune: Birth of a God by Gorrem Dune: Birth of a God by Gorrem
My portrayal of Leto II after he received the Sandtrout Skin in Children of Dune.

At this point in the book he is a young boy with immense powers, cleansing the old Arrakis to make way for his years of Tyranny.

This is a vivid and vibrant portrayal of that scene in Children of Dune.  I'm going to go so far as to say that this portrayal is more vivid, more evocative and more powerful than the scene in the book itself.

Amazingly well done.

I just.. I've loved this piece for what feels like forever, and I just super want you to know that is genuinely excellent. So much majesty and power is conveyed; it really -really- gets across how big a deal the moment is, Leto starting the path to becoming the god emperor and all. Like, ugh, you can just see that in motion, the utter chaos of the worms ripping apart everything around him all maelstrom like and Leto just calmly walking forward into it. 
Excuse my gushing, but its so very, very cool:)

Great vision of Leto as he finally stop his stuggle and embrace his future. One of the most complex and epic characters in the novels. :)

It's been over a decade I think.  Long time.  I guess that makes me old or something, but it's been great to see your talent evolve into what it is today.

Thank you so much! Elfwood feels like so long ago...

I've been thinking of updating this image and submitting it to a magazine or something recently, but if I do that I'll leave this version here :)

I've been following you since the old days on Elfwood, but I've never commented on one of your pieces before today.  I would like to say two things:
1. You are one of my favorite artists on the internet and in general.
2. This is one of the best pieces you have ever created.  It was my laptop background for over a year, and it really encapsulates the epic and galaxy-shattering significance of Leto's decision to embrace his future.  The colors are perfect.  The shai-hulud are fantastic, and the motion dynamic is amazing.
