Neytiri by PorcelainPoet Neytiri by PorcelainPoet
This is NOT a Photo Manipulation! Just because dA is filled with them, doesn't mean this has to be one as well. It's a photograph, the most editing that was done is on the eyes and that does not constitute a Photo Manipulation. She is really blue! It's called body paint and it takes HOURS!

Creative Team

Body Painting by Pamela Grieco
Hair by Ebony
Model is Raven West
Production Design is Shayla of Phantom Light Media (*TheRoseCourt on dA)

The body painting took probably around 5 hours!

Outfit was done by me and Shayla, I provided the jewelry.
Post processing by me. Shayla gets credit for finding all the people who helped make this possible!

I'm not sure if this is necessarily the right category to submit to... but I don't know what else to put it in.
The first of the series... editing is kinda a bitch and I'm OCD. It's hard to get the right "glow" that the movie had. But I think this is decent. :giggle:

Something important to me, is to always try and maintain realism with my photos, that's why the paint is real, the model is real, the setting is real. The only element here that's obviously been changed is the eye color/size.

I just want to say something. I realize not everyone likes Avatar and you could even say the Avatar "craze" has put people off of liking the movie. But I have something to say and that is, I believe any true artist should be able to at least appreciate the visual beauty that this movie has shown us. So please, if you don't care for Avatar that's fine, but simply don't look and keep your comments to yourself. I did this photo shoot for me because I am a fan of the movie.

Avatar fans, I hope you enjoy. :)

Sorry for the very late response (I was away from dA for a couple of months). I edited her eyes.

(totally late for commenting this..)
I think this whole series is well done. The make-up job is truly breath-taking ( i held my breath the whole time!)
The model is goregous... really goregous.

(...and now i am having the urge to watch the movie again..)

I LOVE IT!!! :D
