Dune - Leto II, the tyrant by AndrewRyanArt Dune - Leto II, the tyrant by AndrewRyanArt
More Dune art, portraying Leto II in his pre-giant sandworm phase while he is still more human in appearance. Also I made him a bit older then he is in the book, they made him older in the sci-fi tv series so I figured why not.

Love Dune. Watched Sons of Dune recently. It's good for what it is. I like James Mcavoy's portrayal of Leto II.

Awesome work!
I always imagine him around 15/16 yrs of age in that stage though (I thought he was even younger in the book. Like 10, or 12, but that gives a major 'incongruence error' in my head, lol)
Methinks he's an awesome character!

Oh I like this, it's making his body look like the worm larvae are a part of him.

Epic shot here :) Totally love how the worms look

This is pretty sweet. I like the older look of Leto II you're portraying here. Though the blue mouths of the sandworms are a little odd to me.

Probably the best rendering of Leto II I've ever seen. Captures Frank's words and visualizes them beautifully.

I would have liked to have seen him in a stilsuit. BTW, for the folks who had to wear one, what happened when they had to BARF?? Wouldn't they have been giving up waters? LOL

Fremen don't barf; that's part of their elementary water training. They might cough up some dust ...

also, since the suit also has a mouth-piece which recycles water from breathed-out air, im not sure if it wouldnt also simply recycle it

If you've seen only the David Lynch movie version then you might think that the man on the picture is Paul but no it's his son Leto II. The movie have got the general idea of the first book's plot but it's waaaaay off with many thing, and it adds a lot of stuff too. Example: Remember the fremen voice/sound weapon, the so called Weirding Modules? In the book "Weirding Way" is a form of super/ultimate martial arts. Lynch changed it into sonic weapon because he feared that it would turn his movie into a kung-fu flick. Also to make the statement that "his name had become a death-prayer" more literal.

yeah he transforms into a huge sandworm and virtually the only human physical trait he retains is his fave and a couple stubby limbs poking out resulting in a very grotesque appearance. He also goes on to rule the universe for thousands of years.

I know the old movie and I've seen parts of the TV-series, but this image and the notion of pre-giant sandworm phase has me interested enough to perhaps pick the books up when I have more time to read!
