    As awesome as Patrick Stewart is, It is not at all how Gurney is described in Dune. Brian Blessed and a little bit of Brian Thompson and Oliver Reed were my inspirations for the look of this Dune Character who was described as “and ugly lump of a man.” The work didn’t turn out how I wanted, but I haven’t worked with color for a long time.

    Speaking of not what I imagined, I would have never pictured Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy when I read The Hunger Games.

    These are cool. I just don’t have time to do finished artwork, so mine are always the loosest pencils versus these fully fleshed color and detailed drawings. Hah.

    The Huckleberry Finn piece is awesome, Swa! Really like the camera angle. And the Moby Dick is funny. Shock, how did you settle on Duncan’s costume? I really like it. And I can’t believe Dave did a full painting! That’s wild.

      I wasn’t really putting much thought into Gurney’s dress uniform. I went a little too 19th Century British Empire. I like it to a degree, but I might want more sci-fi futurism incorporated in there.
