Guild Navigator

By Milla
Alright. So now I can honestly say I know how does smudge tool work.

Cheers for your time Smile

Apologise for being all grumpy and not too comunicative today, blame the nasty cold, way too hot weather and lack of sleep.

For those who are wondering wth is she doodling 'bout, from Wiki:

Quote:In the Dune universe created by Frank Herbert, Guild Navigators or Steersmen are humans, mutated through high consumption of the spice melange, who are able to safely navigate interstellar space in a heighliner using prescience. (...)

Guild Navigators are continuously immersed in highly concentrated amounts of spice gas and a micro-gravity environment. The micro-gravity atrophies their bodies and the gas disfigures them further in the process of granting them prescient abilities. The first external sign of melange-induced metabolic change is that the eyes become "blue within blue." The Navigators' bodies change drastically over time, their heads and extremities elongating to the point that they only appear human if compared to human embryos

Cheers you all, so much appreciated.
May try something similar again, as I truly enjoyed working on this one, put me into some kinda trans to be honest, lol

Dave & John, my ideas come from all sort of things, the stories I hear, films I watch, books I read and games I play. But mostly the books and the movies.
Trust me, you wouldn't like my company in a cinema lol, I laugh and cry out loud, and same while reading... and I let the best stories in, so they mix together in my imagination.

Once again many thanks people Smile

This is stunning work Milla and a wonderful result.
Very organic and sort of "thistle face" with the green Smile and I would be intrigued to see a red, fiery variant too.

Oww, John (lonely_oryx), thanks a lot for making my day!
Greatly appreciated.

Funny thing, Tim, thought of the same thing and actually started working on re-doing this from the scraps in red.
Heh, it's never too late to read Dune, John Wink

Many thanks, folks Smile
