Default Avatar Meets Pern. Spoiler-ish?

I hope I'm not the only one who thought about this after I saw the movie x_x The tentacles coming out of the hair is essentially a thick rope of neural tissue that allows them to interface with multiple creatures of their planet, and even the planet itself. Needless to say, the Na'vi is a little confused when thrown onto a completely different world.



Also, this is a very quickly done sketch that was then colored even quicker. It's just something fun that I wanted to start the new year with.

I'm glad you all like it =D I have another piece I'm working on that I'm trying to take more seriously but I don't know how far I'll get with it. I'll be sure to post either the sketch or the finished piece depending on whether I actually finish it or not.

You have something I always love to see - an ability to conjure an image in just a few lines...
My daughter can do it - she gave us the most awesome pencil drawing, from a photograph of me and my other half in 1974, as a Christmas gift. Lord alone knows who she inherited the talent from - the only useful thing either of her parents can do with a pencil is write a shopping list!
Love the drawing, can't wait to drag said other half off to the pix when it gets to our neck of the backwoods.

I used to be able to do it when I was a kid. My parents say I could draw an entire picture without lifting the pencil. Unfortunately, it’s gone now (had a bad art teacher in primary school), but luckily writing replaced it. I still draw a sketch sometimes, for my books, and my dad, from whom I got the talent for painting, gets angry when he sees it, because I don’t even try to get the talent back. Oh, well…

I just found this thread (only 2 weeks late). What a great picture! You should be a cartoonist.

Pern must be a more advanced version of Pandora: you start with a plug, then move on to bluetooth and WiFi and finally to telepathy.
