Avatar Neytiri fan art? Yes please!

I’m about to leave on my European vacation…so I thought today’s Magical Monday should also go on the road – to a land of make-believe! I really liked the movie Avatar – and the characters were designed so beautifully, so I decided to create some Neytiri fan art inCopic Marker, and I’ve colored in my watercolor style. I just love how the glow of the skin came out! Enjoy the video below or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube…WARNING! Have your volume button handy, it wasn’t til late last night I discovered I hadn’t gone back to make some fine-tune adjustments. It’s pretty EPIC music given the movie, but…uh. yeah. It gets a little loud as it gets epic! 🙂

I’ve not been known to create Neytiri fan art or any other kind of movie piee, really – well maybe my Scrat portrait counts? 🙂 But if you have suggestions for something I should try, let me know in the comments. Maybe I’ll tackle some of your ideas.

Real-time version available as a class!

A lot of you have been asking for more real-time videos…if I did them all in real-time I think I’d lose a ton of folks, since my longer ones already have higher abandon rates than the shorter ones. BUT…for this one I did a little extra work for those who really really really want more. I re-edited this video. Yes, I did it twice! I know, I know, that’s just crazy, and double the work. But some features of the class version:

  • Video runtime is 32:43. Edits out only hunting for colors and refilling markers.
  • Includes voiceover, but beware. 32 minutes of ANYONE talking is…well, a lot!
  • Shows the lightbox for creating the initial sketch

This class will NOT teach you to draw. I’m ust saying. Nor is it a step-by-step instructional video. But for those who want to watch the techniques in real time and hear me chatter on, you can do so in the class – and if you decide to purchase the class, you’ll be helping out with my European adventure, since the funds for this will be helping out with that expense! (I leave today, wheeee!)

IMPORTANT NOTE: I’m not going to be available to help you get into the class. So this is important: doublecheck your email address as you fill out your information. The receipt sent to that address will contain your link and password for class; I can’t tell you the number of times folks mistype their address and then email me that they never got the receipt. I won’t be able to get that for you until I return, so please make sure you check all your information carefully.

Okay. Now that all that is out of the way: here’s the link…and the class is discounted until I return from Europe!
