Saint Alia Atreides by RoseCarballeira Saint Alia Atreides by RoseCarballeira
Saint Alia of the Knife from Frank Herbert's masterpiece series Dune.

She fascinates me, Herbert is so great at writing female characters who aren't interchangeable with men. In Dune Messiah she is not only a very powerful individual, but a teenage girl exploring her sexuality. If you haven't read these books, do it!

Colored version coming soon!

Thanks to :icontasastock: for yet another amazing reference!
