    Is this guy supposed to be some futuristic sand warrior? Any kind of search is feeding me his life story with people and planets I've never heard of.

    I would recommend watching at least one of the versions of Dune - there's at least one movie and at least one made for tv mini series. Research is part of CHOW.

    All the best,

    Ohhh! FUN! I remember Stilgar, it's been awhile since I read the books. I remember them being completely covered all the time. But, I'll have to go back and see what wasn't covered in their caves. Or, I'm pretty sure they were stripped nearly naked when fighting for the title. So maybe that?
    Just rambling sorry. Anyone know if I could possibly read the story again online?

    Here's a sketch of the style I'm going to go with... I have redesigned the single combat knife, going to give the still suit some tribal embellishment (oz style aboriginie), added a pocho to protect from sand storms (will try to give it aboriginie style comoflage) and as Frank was supposed to have based fremen in part on the Bedouin I will give them a really rich deep blue colour skeme that the Bedouin are famous for which I think will work as a respect to the spice which turns the eyes a similar blue!

    That's the plan anyway, lets see if I can pull it of convincingly! I am so exited and full of ideas for this round, if only my painting skillls were up to my ideas... must practice more!!!!

    here's a quick sketch I did at work today.. I really like the topic and my idea was to frame it like a moviestill. But I'm afraid I won't really have enough time to finish it this week. Lotsa stuff to do.

    Pixeltuner - A great looking sketch and I suppose it doesnt matter if you dont get to finish it but... your image is very like the film versions of fremen and although good they have been done. Maybe try to put your own twist on the design if you can.

    Try to finish though it has real potential!

    Always strive for perfection. You will never achieve it, but will learn so much more in the striving.

    thx! To be honest, I'm not that much of a Dune-expert so this is what I came up with after consulting some ref. (mostly from the movie indeed) Getting to grips with the material at hand is key before actually putting your own stuff in it. At least, that's how I approach it.

    Well, this is a sketch and then I tried out some quick colours in Photoshop.

    Will tidy this up and perhaps make more of an illustration out of it And no... Im not scared of drawing hands or feet but I ran out of time today

    Foofea: Haha! My thought exactly.
    And "Spice must flooow".

    Pixeltuner niiice! His thigh seems long though and the foreshortening could use more thigh visible behind the knee, er, underneath.

    Cowboy surfer nice design! Looking forward to seeing this detailed.

    Daray
    I love the design but I think he would be awfully slim underneath those clothes.


    I will be doomed if I pass on this!!

    I love Stilgar so much! I always imagined him as this larger than life figure (with lots of facial hair... ).

    So here goes the thumbnail.
    Not much design yet. Focusing on portraying that strength the character has. Not happy with his pose yet.
    I need to change his leg some more and make it come more towards us, since i'm heading for a slightly upshot view.
    I think I'll also brighten the whole thing more.
