Walk to the Golden Path by Kristele Walk to the Golden Path by Kristele
My favorite part of «God Emperor of Dune»:
Leto II tests the rebellious Siona Atreides in the remains of the deep desert of Arrakis...

It took me quite a while to find satisfiying images of the God Emperor, and while one could aim a few nitpicks at your take on Leto's transformation, I still think it's one of the best renditions I found.
Good job.

Whoa, nice interpretation you got there! I've always pictured Leto the Worm as something more... "soft", morbid... I don't know... anyway I love your concept!

Oh my god emperor! Finally a piece of art showing Leto the way I also imagined him while reading the my favorite book from the series besides the original "Dune." Leto II is my favorite Atreides and manipulative bastard in the whole series ^^

Interesting to see the such an openly grotesque creature as Leto II portrayed in the simplistic lines of an animated style. It really serves to bring out the sense of power in the figure.

Sweet... Leto II is my favourite character in the whole of the Dune books I've read so far (up to Heretics of Dune) Seems like God Emperor of Dune is the focal point of the franchise, with Leto II as the hub upon which all events lead to, and from.

I thought her refusal to put on the face filter was an allusion to the fact that her rebellion would never be silenced.

The Character of Leto II is a much better character even than Paul Muad´Dib.
He has the courage to take the Golden Path, even knowing what is going to do to himself, for the good of mankind. Paul was not brave enough to do it.

I do recall this scene and I was awaiting that confrontation; was one of the best scenes.

However, would her eyes really be blue at that point? All she did was get a little spice essence from his body; would that have been enough?

There is far too little Dune art out there. The most epic series of all time. Period.
Books like Twilight come and go, but Dune remains eternal.
Rest in peace, Mr. Herbert. You will be missed.

That was a strong moment! i had no idea how could Leto II possibly call Siona to his side. He mever converted her to be his follower but then again he never really wanted to hehehe.
Strong pic !

Well done, the detail's great. I can never seem to read Dune...I've picked it up a couple of times from my bookshelf, then I'll put it down before I even get out of the training session.

Yeah. I know. Im stuck in my line up, thats why I didnt continue. For now.
Im gonna finish it, I always finish what I start but its gonna take me the time its gonna take me.
For the moment, when I find time to draw for myself, and not for my work, I draw what I feel like to draw. When I force myself, it always suck.
