Dune - IMC 2011 by AaronMiller Dune - IMC 2011 by AaronMiller
My final for the 2011 Illustration Master Class.
I chose to work on Dune.
This is Paul Atreides' final test to become a Fremon; the calling of a worm for a solo ride.

The lessons learned from creating this piece is greater than the painting itself. Months from now when I can share new paintings from jobs after the class I think you will agree.

Excellent job on the painting! But the scene where Paul mounts his own worm for the first time has a large worm. This one is a small worm, not even large enough to eat a Harvester.

I'm digging that golden light, Aaron. Cool design too, if a bit strap happy. I like how you included the extra hooks and hardware.
