AVATAR comic book art by J-Scott-Campbell AVATAR comic book art by J-Scott-Campbell
I was approached earlier this year to put a test piece together in an effort to attract the license to produce comic-books based on James Cameron's AVATAR. Nothing really came of it, except for this neat pice of art!

I found it to be quite challenging capturing Neytiri's likeness in line-art alone. Especially with the headgear she wears while riding her flying banshee, which I also found to be very difficult to draw. Having seen the film now as many times as I have, I think I'd do an even better job if I had to do it again. I have drawn Neytiri since and felt that I captured her "essence" even better in this colored paper sketch, linked below!

Original art is VERY large, 17x24", pencil only. The stripes were done as an overlay. Digitally inked. Colored by the Na'vi princess herself :iconbakanekonei:

A note about "boobies": For those who might suggest that her "boobs" appear to be be too large, I believe upon closer inspection, you'll in fact see that it's a bit of an optical illusion created by her swinging bandolier strap.

ClOSE-UP detail HERE:


And more Neytiri:

How this did not land you the rights to the license is beyond me, but I think they made a mistake passing up on this. This is just as eye-catching and dazzling in its own way as the movie was. Outstanding! :)

You certainly captured Neytiri's features perfectly, giving her also a more comic-style look, which is damn hard for many fan-artists, example provided in shape of my humble self. :giggle:
I absolutely love the dynamic lines and composition (maybe except for the fact that Seze extends beyond the picture a bit too much in my opinion) and how precisely you drew ikrans - even after watching the movie countless times and staring at screenshots and featurettes for hours, drawing them exactly the same way they are is still a challenge, for they don't look like anything we were used to draw; I believe I don't speak just for myself here. ;)
Purely amazing! :clap:
