House Harkonnen - Peter de Vries + Doctors by freakyfir House Harkonnen - Peter de Vries + Doctors by freakyfir
For this assignment, we could pick one of the three houses found in Frank Herbert's Dune and re-imagine them in our own way. I picked House Harkonnen, and imagined the family to have Yakuza-like influences, living in a polluted neo-Tokyo type of city.

Here's Piter de Vries the Mentat and some doctors who operate on the Baron (as seen in David Lynch's movie).

You're Dune designs are incredibly unique and beautiful. I don't know if you did it on purpose because it is the Harkonnen's, but Feyd and the Baron don't even look human. It's intensely unsettling, and appropriate. Piter's mask here is EXTRA creepy, I love it. I would be enthralled to see some work on the other Houses too. Atreides yes, but maybe the Ixians, or the Corrino's? Gosh, I just love this.

hey thank you for the kindness. haha yes, initially i made them totally inhuman but someone advised me to try bringing them back to somewhat human. actually some of my classmates back in school took on the other houses and did amazing jobs with them. here's one who took on Corrino!

I like Piter's mask, it's strangely blank and mysterious. Rather like Piter himself :) Really loving your dune line of stuff :) I really, really, really hope you do more Dune stuff :) Maybe with the atriedes.

hey thanks so much for taking time to comment on the dune stuff! i'm glad that a fan like you can appreciate my rather-off reimaginings. :D

Well I've never been a purist and nothing is more fun when people do their own thing with an idea and it works :)

When it's either art or fan art, the best course is to do something that's completely different. And your stuff rocks!

Fantastic work! I like the Harkonnens with the masks; it adds an aura of mystique.

Very cool designs. I like the colouring on the hospital uniforms' designs, especially with that bright red Harkonnen symbol.

I haven't watched Dune in while remember falling asleep when I was 8.
Wish I read the book though. Your designs are AWESOME as always... I think I prefer to see him with the mask.
