DuneFish's Dune Sketches

Postby DuneFishUK » 15 Sep 2008 16:13

I've been meaning to start posting a couple of things for a while, but never git round to it... until now . I can't promise brilliant Simon-style beautifully finished images - most of these are unfinished, and those that are 'finished' are rough-as-fuck :P

Most of these are done in photoshop - it's much more forgiving for a sketchy bastard like myself compared to real paper etc.

Some of this lot were done off my own bat, but others were done for a game Mod based on Dune that I've done some art for. Not really sure what's happening with that atm, but I'll definately plug it and post more if it takes off again :).

Some character sketches - some for the mod, and some for my own idea for a Naraj-based RPG.

And a tank to fulfill the action-battle quota :)

New stuff. :)

I love GEOD... but even from the very first time I read it, I always sort of wished Leto's car had guns concealed on it :) .. (Yes I know I'm going to hell)

Very ... sketchy. :)

Good stuff; very provocative.

Do you have any Sardaukar with big hats? They are very popular around here.

I definitely like the idea of Dune as a Graphic novel or anime-style movie. If only I was an eccentric billionare, I'd fund the project.

NICE. :D
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

Cheers for the response guys, I'm glad you like 'em. :)

I'm hoping to re-read the chronicles (all 6... if I don't get sidetracked :P) when I finish my current book. So I'll definitely be doing some more pretty soon... if not sooner :D

Definitely keep em coming, I'm always looking for inspiration for the Dune leg sleeve I've been planning, and fan art has been giving me quite a few ideas.

Wouldn't a leg sleeve be called a pant leg?

Har-dy har har. :D Yes, it would. But that doesn't have a very nice ring to it now does it? I don't make up the names for things, I just use em.

Next time I go into the shop I use for more work I'll ask the artist if he does pant legs.

I agree, very good stuff DuneFish. I really liked your fremen design and Baron up top. Were these all digital, or did they start with a sketch?

Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.

Thanks Simon, yeah these are pretty much all completely digital. I'm a bit rubbish at using real pencils :P

Requests sound like hard work, but I'm always open to suggestions :)

Specialist subject pictures of Leto II by any chance? :shock: :roll:
