The Sandworm Riders

First of all, I want to dedicate this drawing to Jorge Poyato, who showed me the world of Arrakis, and many others...

"Dune" is a science-fiction novel (and a book series) written by Frank Herbert, some people say that the best science-fiction book. It is based in the far future in the planet Arrakis, also called Dune. There is no precipitations on this planet, and it is almost covered by a great desert, where live giant sandworms. The water is a valued thing, so people who lives there are dressed with special suits that allow to store and not to lose the corporal humidity.

There are a film and TV series about the books, I hope you like my own version, don't fear to comment, please...

Se basa en un futuro lejano en el planeta Arrakis, también llamado Dune. No hay precipitaciones en este planeta, y está casi totalmente cubierto por un gran desierto, donde viven gusanos de arena gigantes. El agua es algo valioso, y la gente que vive allí se visten con trajes especiales que permiten almacenar y no perder la humedad corporal.

Hay una película y serie de televisión sobre los libros, espero que te guste mi propia versión, no temas a comentar, por favor ...

The thing I love about this is the green kerchief: the symbol of all who belong to Stilgar and Sietch Tab'r. The Fremen called it "Bakka, " the weeper. It's a lovely little detail from the books that almost never shows up in the artwork.

Nicely Done.

I've seen many other riders of Shai-hulud, but this is bar the best. I'm a long time lover of the Dune series (I've read them all by Frank and his son.) Great work on the still suit as well. Gotta have a good reclamation system in the deserts of Arrakis. He's got the maoula pistol, maker hooks, crysknife and literjon. Very well done.

Critique: I'm not able to critique this. It is by far, much better then what I've made as of yet. If you were going for consistency with the traditional description of a Fremen then the only thing I'd say is that the crysnife was at the waist. Hell, that's all I can think of.

Two questions. I can't remember, but does the green scarf symbolize the color of a Naib?
Did you have any certain Fremen in mind when you created this character?

I am currently reading Children of Dune now.... absolutely amazing. I think I would be one of those people who think it's the best written science-fiction series of all time.... (Dune is the sci-fi as LOTR is to fantasy ;D)

Your rider looks great.... but your sand dunes look amazing. I love the detail in the ripples in the sand, the dust in the air, and especially the halo around the sun.

Is it just me, or does it also looks as if we are seeing this man through a lens? I like the effect in any case.

Nice Nod to the "Bakka" kerchief around his neck. Not many people would catch that detail.

Nice work, many excellent touches. I can see the water caches in the suit, the blue eyes, riders on the worm in the background, the suit perfect camouflage in the desert. Just a couple of touches of color - nice!

I would have liked to see more of a toothy-maw on the worm, but it's terrific as is!

Hello Isra2007 This image is truly amazing! I'm doing some work for my youtube channel doing videos using HQ artwork from different sources... Can I use your image to illustrate a video with the song "To Tame The Land" from Iron Maiden, a song based on Dune Universe? you will be fully referenced and cited! :)
Amazing, I love the Stilsuit the fremen is wearing... looks like a junction of David Lynch's film and Dune serie stillsuits... but somehow something completely different...
