Some recent experiments in digital dune creation using World Creator, C4D and Octane. Also used Daz/Marvelous Designer for the character and clothing (enlarge images and look closely, tiny in frame)
The rough concept is that of a solo figure going on a literal and symbolic, challenging, physical and spiritual journey.
Funnily enough after completing these images I finally watched the documentary 'Jodorowsky's Dune' over this past weekend. A 'failed' film adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune that never happened in the 1970s - way, way way ahead of its time in scope, technique and creativity. Especially for Hollywood; which is why they didn't buy into it.
Very inspiring. Jodo's aim was to assemble a super team of 'spiritual warriors' (a bit like the figure of these images). The project was successful in many ways - such as kick starting the film careers of amazing concept artists like Moebius, Giger and Chris Foss. As well as influencing countless Sci-Fi films to come.
