Dune: Sand Rituals by Gorrem Dune: Sand Rituals by Gorrem
Dune art! I <3 Dune. This is a Fremen girl, complete with MAKER HOOKZ.

reverting back to my oldschool line&color technique. it still needs work so give me any critiques/comments you feel could push it.

Basically I want it to have a very european comic sort of feel to it, but I borrowed the compositional elements from japanese prints.


Yes, I will paint a sandworm someday!

EDIT: Thanks for the critiques and comments, I will update this shortly after listening to feedback!

EDIT: O_O WOW, a DD... I didn't see that coming. Thank you so much for featuring!

your Dune work makes me want to read the books, and I've never really had a huge desire to. but if you're pulling this fantastic imagery out of it, it sounds like it would be right up my alley :D

This is another one of my favorites.  It really reminds me of some of your older work.  As usual, the colors and details are fantastic.  The sand particles in the wind are a wonderful added touch.
Your stillsuit is almost exactly as I imagined them when I first read Dune fifteen odd years ago.  As far as I'm concerned this is Chani.

Stunning creation. St Alia of the knife, killed herself by falling to death after becoming possessed by her ancestor Baron Harkonnen. She killed the Baron when she was four, as her brother claimed the empire intire with his jihad. Frank Herbert writes vivid words.
