This was my first idea I had to paint for an Avatar piece, but I went with the Jake version first and decided to do this one later.

Based off a screenshot (from Once again, putting a different spin on it and this is how it came out.
David Nagal's skin texture and highlight brush pack worked amazingly well for this too!

Photoshop CS3. About 10 hours on and off over the last week.

One of the things I love about Neytiri's character design is that she features some very inhuman traits - the huge yellow eyes, long pointed ears, feline nose and oversized canines - yet manages to convey a wide range of emotions, and to do it so convincingly that the viewer can't help but empathize with her as a person, human or not. You've captured that beautifully here. You have done an excellent job capturing the texture of her hair and skin, including the bioluminescent spots. I especialy like the flames reflected in her eyes - you don't need to see more than her face to know that whatever is happening, it's bad, and the way you've captured her expression carries her emotions straight to the viewer. Fantastic job!
