DUNE by bumhand DUNE by bumhand
Some freemen. Chilling. Hunting worms.

This oneīs for my pal Brad.


UPDATE: This image, with some additional color tweaks I did to accomodate the art direction, is now the cover of Gollancz (Orion Books) latest release of the book Dune by Frank Herbert.

Don't let the bedbugs bite you is for normal people....I will tell my children (if I ever have some): Don't let the duneworms bite you.

Yeah that´s the way to scar kids for life. Talking about sandworms when they´re on the beach.

I like this. I feel that it really captures the mystery of the sandworms and the Fremen. Nice job.

Just started reading the book, and I've gotta say that this is some nice work.  Congrats on the cover (even if it was two years ago).

Thank you again. I have what I would call a portfolio thatīs all over the place. Most artist have a set type of stuff they like doing while I have a few that I like to jump around between. For good and bad. But many seem to enjoy my more inky stuff, which is nice since thatīs what I generally like doing the most.

Well, your portfolio is definitely impressive.  Jumping around not only shows your range, but keeps you and your viewers interested.  Although, the latter is hardly an issue.  ;)  Excellent.  I'm inspired!

Of course.  Dune is also my favorite book series of all time. If only I wasn't the only one in my area to have read this book.

Well, like I always say, itīs a classic. I have to admit Iīm a late bloomer of Dune appreciation though. Iīm sure youīll find more fans of it at some point, thereīs a lot of them out there :)

I totally compreend your point. I've read this book so long ago, way after I've saw the 1984 movie and I have to amdit, I never thought Dune could be so deep, thoughtfull and actually exciting. The movies does it no justice.

I'll have to agree with you though.

For example, the movie did gave the setting a very unique visual style, while adding great music on top of it. :)
