Hi everyone, long time no see.
I'm super obsessed with Dune, I've read all of Frank Herbert's novels (didn't bother with his son's continuation) and I'm dying to see proper Dune adaptation on screen (either HBO or Movie, imma take both, because that David Lynch verson was horrendous, like i can't even, this wasn't Dune whatsoever). For some time I've been working on series of conceptual art posters of some of my favorite Dune characters. First one is Jessica, which is my top 3 from all books. One familiar with Dune will be like "Oi dude, why is Jessica walking without a stillsuit in the desert????" but to you my friend I say "ignore the background, that's just the connective tissue between all of the drawings". This concept depicts Jessica shortly after her arrival on Caladan. I wanted to illustrate her distance from the Bene Gesserit (btw Bene Gesserit is everything, I can draw any character from Heretics or Chapterhouse, because SON, I love them all) by embracing lighter colours. At the same time I wanted her to keep the seductiveness of a typical BG, and look very intense and even slightly demonic. Like people were suspecting Jessica of treason, if she'll be blamed for shit, she might as well look bomb at the time. Overall I wanted Jessica to have almost a "goddess-y" look to her, because let's be real to make Leto fall for her so much, she must have been out of this world.
Sooo, I hope someone likes this piece of art. In few days I'll post Paul and in some time Duncan and Irulan.
