Can you find the Fremen?

Of course, I can’t stop thinking about Dune when I look at this.  Especially when you compare it to one of the novel’s more recent cover styles:

Weird, huh?  Now, you can go here for a great explanation and clearer close-up image of those weird stripey features, but before you do, let it be known that when I first saw this, I thought they were actually tree-like growths towering above the crests of the dunes and pretty much needed to change my pants in the face of a really alien landscape.  Sadly, it’s not quite as a incredible as that, but it’s still beautiful and awe-inspiring.  I believe I’ll have to illustrate what my brain was perceiving, because it was really sweet.

Speaking of which, sorry for the lack of new art.  I’m trying to finish up a couple of the aforementioned board games in time to be Christmas presents.
