God Emperor of Dune by jubjubjedi God Emperor of Dune by jubjubjedi
A painting of one the most complicated characters in Science Fiction, Leto II from Frank Herbert's God Emperor of Dune. A version with the vintage title font from the old Dune books can be seen at my blog: jacobatienzaart.blogspot.com

Great work; this looks, to me, like the pivotal scene in the novel in which Leto II allows his assassination, thus becoming The Divided God.  Really wonderful.  This is one of the few images I'd consider to be an "authentic" Dune-inspired image.  Frank Herbert would be proud!  I love this.

Hey, thanks for the kind words!  That's definitely the reason why I painted this scene... the fact that it's a sunset is also mean to illustrate that pivotal event.

Hwi Noree is the person next to him, or Moneo Ibn-fuad Sayefa Atreides?

I've just wiki-ed EVERYTHING
I really like the concept of this character. It makes me both curios and terrified.

...So many people are praising this character, I need to read the book! I've only read Dune, and that... that was almost too much to comprehend, but I loved it so much.

Take your time with each novel. EVERY choice and action by Paul and Leto II have lasting effects millenia down the road. The characters are as good as they come.
