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.

Good afternoon, Henrik!

In a search of the illustrators for our new book I’ve recently run across your works and I really liked them!

I'm an art editor in the publishing house Book Club (Ukraine, Kharkov)/
We are looking for an illustrator for the continuation of the science fiction saga of Frank Herbert "The Messiah of Dune".
We would be very glad if your wonderful works will be in our book Could you help us, please, with this project?

Holy moly this is rad. Would you mind if I use it as a background image on my credit card??

I´d mind it if it was on a business card or a flyer or something where you´d market yourself using it but if it´s just for your credit card it´s pretty much just like putting it as your desktop image or screen saver so I have no problem with it.

Nice picture!

Would it be possible to use this picture in fan made card game as an card picture?
Maybe in the card:
"Champion of the Bled"

And if it is ok, What name I will putt on the card as an artit?

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

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!
