Hi there!

... a moody desert scape, low light situation.
Done from scratch with Photoshop CS2 and CS
(CS2 crashed and I had to switch back to CS .. damn CS2 .. o_O).
I used a photograph for the moon ;)

Thanks for watching,

Nice picture!

I would like to ask, if you would give me a permission of using this picture in a fan made expansion to Dune card game?
If you do, what artist name do you prefer to use?…

Ich liebe den Dune Zyklus und ich verbinde dieses Bild mit Arraken. Sieh wirklich gut aus

Some careless person left footprints in the sand close to the bottom of the picture...couldn't have been a fremen

Wow...incredible job, I can't get over the amount of detail. Was this painting inspired by Frank Herbert's books by any chance? That's what I thought of the minute I saw it, the city is exactly what I envision Arakeen would look like. :)

Du hast nicht zufällig vor ein Tutorial zu machen, oder? ^^ Ich bin nämlich auch sehr an Landschaftsgrafiken interessiert.

Nice and all, amazing that comes from scratch however...If this is based on Dune the book and not the series up to date, there should be no trees. Dune has no trees like that or any vegitation in that large of a quanity otherwise it looks ok. Flyers would give it a more Dune-ish feel because Arrakis City is a space port...

I love Dune! This is sweet!!
tempelguardian Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2005
Nice piece of work. Sweet detail on the sands too!
alyn Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2005
One or two parts don't seem to gel completely, however otherwise this is once again a very nice piece of work.
Mojoslav Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2005
Love the distant features.
hakubaikou Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2005
Your environments are always so beautiful. I especially like this one though. Something about desertscapes just really appeals to me. Plus the fact that Dune is one of my favorite novels... heh, that doesn't hurt. Love the little footsteps. That was a nice touch.

Dune.. Like in 'Dune by Frank Herbert' ??
AuroranWings Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2005  Student General Artist
Ooooh!! That looks really nice. =)

Hey, very cool!
alexsmith Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2005
Maybe some shadows from those travelling objects? Looks beautiful otherwise.
sfsean Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2005
Once again - amazing work man - what equipment do you use along with CS/2?
yanimator Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2005
Wow that's awesome. DUNE!! The worms!!!!

I almost thought this was an artpiece from the movie.

Sorry I'm a little late to comment, but I was compelled to by this very realistic looking peice, great job :)
acida Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2005
omg. just amazing. when will you create an oasis?
Aeires Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2005
Can't really find anything that needs improvement. This looks very well thought out, even down to having the bushes grown in the shady parts of the dunes.
Hador Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2005   Photographer
amazing! it looks so real, especially the city, and the rock piles along the right side
Gigantor Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2005   Digital Artist
Excellent work!
MissM69 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2005

Stunningly awesome you did a fantastic job with the details a must add to my list of favorite :p
Deligaris Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
Cool landscape, the terrain looks great! :)
Only two comments about tiny details; I think the perspective of the foot traces is too steep compared with the FOV of the rest scene (they look like they're getting smaller gradually), and second, desert areas have a very dry environment, and the atmosprere is much more clear at long distances (I've been in Egypt;)). I'd make the mist a little more brown to appear as a sandstorm.;)
inetgrafx Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks for your comment! Helpful indeed!
About the atmospheric haze, I think I've overdone it a bit. :giggle:
abhimanyughoshal Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2005  Professional Photographer
very good stuff... the detail is great! you've got skills!
ParabolicPhoton Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
You've capture the setting to a TEE. :nod:
Iocus Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2005
Hahaha... you can create photorealism seemingly effortlessly, and then you use a photo for the moon...

Hahaha... Awesome work, man!

Great picture...associations with the "Alchemist" of Paulo Coelho...:)

Awesome! :winner: B-)

Great work! Reminds me of ancient Jerusalem.
StarDragon77 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2005
Love the look of this one, if it were a little larger in the height it'd make a hell of a wallpaper. And it really does look like a scene from the Dune books.
sans2012 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2005
Very well done!

Talent, talent and more talent;)
