lol you guys I don't even know WHAT to say about this one. I had this list of shit that i'd been wanting to paint for a while (jungly setting, crazy hair pieces, non-white people, lighning bugs,) and I was like KAY i'm'a make a painting of them. So I was working on it and I was realy excited about it and it had all this philosophy and stuff behind it and I was really into this whole character type and development and culture and whatnot and i'm painting away and then i'm like

I drew some Na'vi.
HAHA OH WELL at least i realized it before someone said that to me. I think it's a good thing to let your influences take hold sometimes......but usually it's better when it's intentional. Decided to share it anyway cause I (think?) I"m proud of it technically.
watercolor and gouache, done over two days.

This is gorgeous :wow:

I saw Pocahontas, not Na'vi ;)

But then again, I must be the only person in the universe who hasn't seen that movie xD

Haha well, friend, if you have seen pocahontas, then you have basically seen avatar.
Not dissing it, great movie, but you know, "no new stories" and all that.
thank you!

thank you for this one.
I had a dream that included exactly this scene a week ago:)

it's nice to see it into art, into the "real world"

I believe you must write, draw or at least tell the dreams you have, as to take them out of "that" world into "this" one :)

so again, thank you for bringing it to this world:)

Her face and hair are exquisite but there's something strange about her wrist/hand to me.

I am actually left speechless, so I'm not sure what to write. Na'vi or not, I love this anyway. The feeling it gives me is pretty much undescribable. Technically, it's amazing. The brushwork, the lighting, the anatomy. But then, all these create such a lively, evocative atmosphere, that really makes the viewer FEEL things, not in an over-emotional way, but in more subtly and emotively. It's really something I can't describe, but I'll love this (and you) forever. :heart:
