    My (Cameron's) Avatar Neytiri sculpture WIP, new head post #30

    I fully expect to to be blown away by this movie. Been so excited about it I had to start a project based on it. Just using some of the released pics as reference.

    Some progress pics here. I'm slowly building the body with apoxie sculpt. Later when the body form is done I'll come back and and the fine details, toes, fingers, clothes, etc.. The hair will be like a dolls, and not sculpted. Hopefully I can find some braids that'll work with the sculpt.

    That's the veiw outside my back door. The lake even has bass, catfish, brim and carp! A flock of Canadain geese regularly visit to chew up my grass and poop all over the place! But it is nice.

    I've been around, all is well. It's hard sometimes to find time for the art with Christmas coming, the wife and kid, work......

    This sculpture is looking great so far, any more updates on it? Maybe offering a few copies up?

    Just saw Avatar today, and loved it! While the storyline was pretty predictable, the CG and effects used to make Pandora and all its inhabitants completely drew me into it, and for about 2 and a half hours, I really felt as if I was on a different planet.

    I'll be working more on it over the break, refinig it after I saw the movie. She needs to be slightly more skinny in some areas, and the shoulders are too beefy. I'll post pics after that. As far as castings,, depends on the interest and how good it comes out. Thanks

    if you want to keep the geese out of your lawn spray some artificial grape flavor. geese hate the smell, and golf courses use it to keep them off the greens.

    random fun fact.

    oh, and i'm looking forward to see more progress on this sculpt.

    If she stood up she'd be about 25 inches.

    Making progress. I sculpted the toes and fingers. I totally redid the right arm. I didn't like the way it was bent behind her. Got it more on a straight back pose, elow bent and knife in hand. More pics coming soon.

    this is truly looking amazing. I like seeing hard sculpts instead of clay sometimes. Bondo and any other type of sandable, drillable etc. type of stuff to sculpt is great. I can't wait to see this finished. hard sculpting is the only way I was able to make the peices come out right for my ODST gauntlet sculpts

    Re: My (Cameron's) Avatar sculpture WIP

    More pic update. Working on the chaps, don't have a real clear reference so...
    Trying to imagine what they are made from or what they are. Could it be they are some kind of leaf or animal skin wrapped around her legs? And what is the pattern or how is it put together at the thigh? My thought is that they are pieces of a wing off a Banshee or something, cause the thigh pattern resembles that of the lead wing flaps. Any help with this?

    pic update. I'm planning on making changes to the face, getting ready to order real hair micro braids. Also making progress on her necklace with real feathers and beads and hemp rope. Pics to come of that soon.
