I've seen plenty of art for the worms, but this is the first one that actually captures the sheer size of them accurately.

Amazing picture, you could imagine the sandworm being that huge as well if you really saw it. I love the effects in the sky as well, the clouds and lightning really show off how dynamic that worm is.
