A friend of a big fan of ‘James Cameron’s Avatar’ commissioned this piece in 2011, featuring a likeness of the fan as a Na’vi.

It's challenging to make an accurate likeness of any real person at such a small scale, and on top of that - he needed to look like a Na'vi warrior -- yet still be recognizable as the person it was modeled after.

I used the great services of ThatsMyFace website to generate a rough 3D print of the man's face (using some modified reference photos). Afterward, I used Aves Apoxie sculpt and Citadel Green Stuff to create the Na'vi look. The base figure was from the 'Movie Masters' Avatar toy line, and was repainted head to toe (tail?), then sealed.

I also created a custom resealable package for the figure using my skills in photoshop, laser printed sticker sheets and an existing clamshell toy's packaging, sourced from a 7th Kingdom figure.

-Movie Masters 6" Jake Sully Naavi Avatar figure

-3D modeled/printed head of Briton Green via 'ThatsMyFace'
-7th Kingdom 4Horsemen toy packaging (resealable/slip-card backing)

Painted with Vallejo acrylics, and sealed with Vallejo Matte Varnish / Citadel Glossy.
