Now this looks like a Galactic Emporor's throne room.

Imagine what it would be like if it were the God-Emperor Leto II who was in that throne room instead of Paul.

Великолепная работа, звание ДД присвоено заслуженно несомненно.
Этот масштаб вообще тяжело было вообразить и передать всё величие этого тронного зала!

So it is here that Paul is given, and first lays eyes on, the ghola of Duncan Idaho, possibly my favorite character in the Duniverse. Epic, mythic-scaled. As it should be. Bravo.
(I need to locate this edition!)

Those are not subliminals at all!

Phallic structures have always been a symbol of strength, and for the emperor of the whole universe it had to be quite obvious... It had to express "man power" to all civilisations. plus it was a logic assembly of the traditional antic egyptians and greek columns and the dome roofs from the oriental architecture.

Didn't get the disney ref, though...

Thanks :)

And by the way I went for the female symbols too for the Temple of Alia, but no one got the ref this time :)

Is it rooftop twin obelisk imitating curvy woman legs upsuide down, vagina like balcony bottom or fleshy overal details? But ill admit i didnt get it at first glance. Theyre not as striking as on this one due to theyre smaller size. Cool overal concept with the whole architecture. Looks like aztec tample on steroids :D or hindu table cause complex carvings rings a bell but im  not that good with architecture so i make no claims :P

I used to do alot of research when i was making comics or characters or just draw. and usualy use just 10% of what i gather but i needed those 100% of research to craft!(now im more likely passive watcher) I say it cause i Adimre the fact that you put there those nugets, that something more to your craft. Thats awesome.

OH and theres disney conspirancy that theyre put subliminal sex themes in children movies :D You reminded me of those.

ok you intrigued me gotta browse your gallery. Keep that Amazing work flowing :D

When saw this for the first time it made me think of the majestic - almost godlike - impression of Herbert's Dune universe. The composition, colors, light, textures and use of perspective invokes a feeling of arcane and monolithic power that demands submission and subordinance.
The Dune series is one of my absolute favourite works of literature and I must say that your illustration is one of the best dune-related works of art I've seen so far.

In short: I can do nothing else than love it. You did a perfect job with this.
