AVATAR comic book art

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:

The creature's face detail has got to be my favorite part of this piece.
The CG and the rendering of such a fantastic scene is beyond draw dropping.
