Dune, Arrakis, desert planet. by sabresun

Dune, Arrakis, desert planet.

I've always liked the book Dune, and wanted to try to do a little tribute to it.

I used a sock for the worm crawling over the book and clone stamp to make it look similar-ish (yeah, I know it still looks like a sock :P) to the one from the book illustration. It took some doing, but was quite fun.

Nb - Due to limited resources (i.e bowl of water and a sock) the majesty of the desert and the mighty dunes are subject to your imagination. :)
Too fun! I love how much creativity and enjoyment you put into your projects every day! Besides, who doesn''t love Dune!

Weird - we were just talking about Dune and how it inspired Star Wars and Avatar and to what degree. Have to work out how to collage photos!

@tford Thanks Trisha, I didn't get this one quite how I wanted it to be, but anyhow was enjoyable to try out.

@giselle I think Dune has probably influenced a lot of modern day sc-fi with its mix of common sense zen philosophy, courage and overcoming the odds by being the 'chosen one'. Come to think of it that sounds like the theme to J K Rowling's series too. :)

Try Photoscape to collage photos. It's free and pretty easy to use.

@emer @pyrrhula Ah, you're very kind. Bekki thinks the water looks like someone peeing in a cup and the worm, well, you can guess that one! I was trying to show that water was precious like gold or something like that, I should have tinted it blue, but it was late and Photoscape was being a little intractable to put it delicately :)
