Neytiri III by PorcelainPoet Neytiri III 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!

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.

Disclaimer:
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. :)

This is awesome probably the best avatar costume that is body paint that I've seen. You could be a movie stunt double because it would be cheaper than CGI and paying for the team that makes em.

As an avid Avatar fan I have to say hell yeah. And as someone that has watched the process of body painting...wow. That is a lot of work and very well done. Pamela did one hell of a job. And the outfit and jewelry, a lot of time went into this and it shows. I'd LOVE to be able to craft things onto people or make beautiful things they could wear but that's just not my gift.

But I can still enjoy the results and appreciate and marvel at the work :)
