Charcoal Dune Cover by TheFool432 Charcoal Dune Cover by TheFool432
Cover to Cover assignment.

We could do any book we wanted. My friend Rory and I both did Dune by Frank Herbert. Neither of us were very satisfied with our versions.

I got two completely different crits on this from 2 different professors. One really liked the graphic nature while the other wanted it more realistic with the worm looking more organic.

Both agreed I need to knock back the shininess of the worm. I was looking at an earthworm... that's wet... which a sandworm wouldn't be. Oops.

Charcoal on Rives BFK.

Thanks! I definitely had fun with those and the ripples on the dunes.

It was certainly evocative. :nod: They're just so iconic, it's great when you get them right.

Very nice traditional ilustrative work. I love, simply love the worm behind and the shadow on Jessica and Paul in the front. Great!
