This thread is where I post the drawings people suggest to me in the shoutbox. Every now and then I run out of inspiration and ask the shoutbox what to draw. You may have seen the whale I posted a while back. I thought it be better if I don't flood the forums with single threads, so I just made one cohesive thread to post my drawings suggested by this lovely community. Mostly I do these drawings for practise and fun. Please don't expect amazing art just yet, that's why I'm practicing. Also i have a hardware limitation. I draw on a tablet and the poor thing simply can't handle drawings too complex. The drawing below serves as a good example of what I am physically capable of. I had issues exporting it as a .PNG. Eventualy it did save, but I don't know why. Drawings probably won't get any more 'intense' than this one.
This thread is the place where I am going to post drawings suggested to me in the shoutbox. Please note, this is NOT a place to post suggestions. I appreciate the thought, but I will ask people to suggest things. Please don't flood me with suggestions.
The first drawing was suggested by serialkiller🌴 . It depicts a man running away from another man riding a sandworm from Dune. In the suggestions it was a group of people being chased, but I simply couldn't do that. The picture wouldn't save if I added any more.
Wait... How would this work? If the man on top is riding the dune worm, and the dune worm gets around by burrowing underground, what happens when the worms goes back under? Does the man have to jump off and then run to where he thinks the worm will pop up next, and continue riding it? Does the man hold one excruciatingly tight?

It was actually explained in the dune book Normally the worms are impervious to the sand because of their chitin exterior, when a rider gets his hooks on the worm, the chitin is broken and the flesh underneath exposed, if the worm tries to burrow, the sand will be like sandpaper on its flesh so the worm doesn't burrow because of pain. However, it can still move around extending and contracting sections of its body over the sand (like snakes and worms).
Thanks! I added the rider mostly because it looked cool. I didn't really think of the logistics needed to ride a sandworm underground. Suffice to say, the sand got everywhere and now it's roughly irritating the worm and the rider.
