I always imagined he eventually didn't have arms or they were inside like his legs and you only saw the head when he opened the worm head.

Awesome! It's almost how I imagine him, apart from that I imagine his body to be longer, same for his arms.
Just amazing work! Wow!

thank you for this image! it's hard to visualize herbert's description sometimes, especially because of the distracting painting on the cover of the book that makes him look more like a statue than a creature. you really bring out his strange and repulsive characteristics.

Wow! It's one thing to imagine this in the book...it's another to visually have it before you. And yet...it still creeps me out. xD
Awesome piece!! :wow:

Awesome portrayal of Leto! A bit freakier than my imagination of him, but probably more true to the books:)

Considering how difficult it was to properly imagine him as the book describes, this is probably the best rendering I've ever seen. Well done, good sir.
