    Dune Messiah

    hey friends. this is my first uneatpoo post in a long time, not to mention my very first post on conceptart (well, to my knowledge at least). My name is tom rhodes, and im just about done my first year at the alberta college of art. same as everyone, ive been drawing since 5 or so, and i like it a lot. i thought there may be a large dune following here. its an amazing series, and theres a lot of scifi stuff here, so i thought it may be appropriate to show this to you guys.

    i rented david lynch's Dune movie last night. it didnt fill me like i wouldve liked, so i came downstairs, put on the Toto, and went to town. The final image came out a lot different than what i planned. well... i didn't plan it, but i forced-evolutioned it as i went. i made it a possible book cover for the second book, Dune Messiah. i really recommend the series. well, here ya go! i hope you like it

    Not too bad Tom. His right forearm is a little too short, and his shoulders look funny. They're hunched forward, and his neck doesn't line up right with them. I like the BG alot though. Some orangish highlights on his face would be nice too.

    I really like how you've stylized the figure here. Looks really good. There are a few anatomy issues, but nothing serious. Maybe draw the hand at the bottom? You've done a good job on the one holding the knife.. I think it could add a lot.

    The only thing I'm not so sure about are the swirly bits and the text. Stylistically, they work, but they distract the attention from the figure, which I think is the most interesting part. If it's a book cover, obviously the title has to feature prominently, but I'm not sure about the yellow. Maybe darkening the swirls to a colour the same as the top of the background, but a couple shades darker, and make the text red? Then add some highlighting around the man's face and the knife.

    Cool... As has been mentioned your anatomy is a little off around the shoulders and arms but I like the style.

    thanks for the critiques guys. i had already fiddled with the tons and CTRL+M's of the lines so its too late to go back, but i agree with the anatomy issues. when i was about half way done i knew it would never be perfect. i had put too much time into it, and it lost its "flow". the arm on the left is actually just a random sketch that was done on the side and i just thought it would look better (dynamically/functionally) on the figure so i threw it in. you COULD say, if you wanted to bend the truth a little, that this is more of just a place holder for a more finalized version, but i like it how it is, and i dont think ill make any changes. i will definitely keep a keener watch for pieces in the future, and im glad you guys pointed things out.

    and yes, i was shocked too that i finally caved to post here on CA. i have my reasons, though.

    thanks guys!

    that drawing is the tits. as much flash and stylish bits as you've got going on here, the core drawing is fantastic, and that's the most important thing. great characterization aswell.

    I think anatomy of work well, onley seem that neck is missing. Also if you want to make an ilustration of a book make it more recognisebile (this word exist?) I dont have read the book but think that is some SF? Yours cover look like aladin or something.

    Actually, I don't really see all the problems people are seeing with anatomy here. It just looks stylized to me. When stylization starts looking uncomfortable then it's probably an issue with anatomy. His shoulders just look hunched to me.

    Dune is my absolute favorite SF series. You know, I'd love to do a graphic novel of it. maybe we could collaborate a bit just to try it out?
