Emperor Paul Atreides
Here's a second conceptual drawing dedicated to Frank Herbert's incredible series Dune. This is my depiction of Paul Atreides (another fave) from Dune Messiah. At that point Paul is an Emperor to the known universe, but I felt Paul would be "fuck you, traditional emperor attire" and would wear something mixing his Atreides heritage and fremen past. I wanted to incorporate black and green, with black being predominant, due to years on Arrakis. Additionally I wanted Paul to have some sort of armor that reminded of sandworms' scales, but not turn the whole thing into a armor suit. Obviously, similar to Jessica this is not meant to depict Paul in the desert, but how he would wear himself in his palace. I know someone might say "damn this hair be so douchy" but I feel Paul was kinda of a douch anyway. 

So yea that's pretty much it, we'll seen when I'm done with Duncan and Irulan (I also have a wip of Alia) 
Lady Jessica of House Atreides
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.
2k16 Aesthetics
Yoo it's been so long since I got the time to draw something, but now that I'm not a student anymore it's time to go back to basics. This is a special effects makeup done by Akihito Ikeda and the moment i saw it on Instagram I was like "Damn boy, Imma draw this guy no matter what!" Obviously it's not an original concept, but I definitely needed some time to practice before going back to character designs I've started in the past. Anyways soon I will start posting a new DUNE character design series, some A song of Ice and fire (I swear i have 4 drawings of Rhaegar which I haven't finished and I'm ashamed) some Witcher stuff and if life is good - some original artwork.

Hi, Im Dennis, 23, Bulgarian.
Im currently doing an MA Advertising at London College of Communication.
I mainly tend to draw people, mostly digitally past 5 years.
I get easily bored with drawings and often I just leave them unfinished, also I like to post wips of my stuff because as my teachers always tell me the process is always more important than the final product.
I don't mind my art being shared as long as I'm credited
So this is basicly, if you are interested in something I always answer notes)
Have a nice day/night/afternoon/whatever :D
PS this is my Tumblr I post mainly stuff for my uni but you can find what i tend to do and also i put my drawings there

Note: I'm open for commissions so if anyone is interested, please send me a note.
