I’m sure you know that James Cameron is coming out with a new flick called AVATAR. When I first seen the preview for the movie I was amazed at what I was watching. The characters looked absolutely awesome, and the beasts and animals where so colorful and creative. Because I feel so strongly about how awesome this movie is, I am going to do a tutorial on one of the main characters from James Cameron’s new movie. What character you ask? Well that is simple. I am going to show you “how to draw Neytiri from AVATAR step by step”. As you can imagine there is very little information on this particular character so the description will be very brief. Now Neytiri is a princess Na'vi which is a race of sentient extraterrestrial humanoid beings that live on the moon Pandora. To the humans that travel to Pandora, they call these fascinating beings Pandorians or locals. The Na’vi people are absolutely graceful in every way. There bodies are sleek, slender, and long with cat like long tails. Their faces are extraordinary because they are so elegant and fierce at the same time. The story is laid out to be an epic adventure that takes it’s viewers to a new world that is filled with fascination and mystery. One of the other main characters of the flick is called "Jake Sully" and he is a solider that is sent into this world to save a civilization while he leads a heroic battle. Neytiri is the princess of the Na’vi people and she falls for the human man and he falls for her. Neytiri is a beautiful Na’vi that has wonderfully piercing eyes and a beautiful heart. All Na’vi people look very much like felines crossed with humans. Their eyes are twice the size of ours and when they are fully open, and they dominate their matte blue faces. Their mouths and or lips are full with the top lip being cat like, and they have pearl white teeth with a set of canines. They have these small iridescent spots and lines that are perfectly laid out in a symmetrical pattern on their bodies. The small illuminating dots glow at night which makes them even more beautiful. If you haven’t watched the teaser trailer yet you can actually visit the official website by clicking here to familiarize yourself with what I am talking about. Anyway this tutorial came out pretty cool and I think you guys will like learning “how to draw Princess Neytiri step by step”. I didn’t want her to come out too complex so I sort of drew her in a cartoonish like form. I drew this Na’vi live and I had a blast. I have to say I think James Cameron outdid himself once again and I look forward on going to the theater to watch AVATAR when it is released on December 18th. I will be back a bit later with more drawing fun so stay tuned in to see what comes up next. Peace out and happy drawing.
