"Digital Sumi-e" Styling
First glimpse of what Xetsa's anthro form looks like, granted this is heavily navi biased from the movie avatar, once the refence sheet is completed you can see the differences and similarities. Painted rough to only capture the atmosphere/mood I know there are some major lighting "no-no's" but accuracy is not the point of the image, the essence is....

Ah this definately reminds me of the forests in Pandora and Neytiri especially - in other words it's beatiful in an other-wordly way!

Nice work! I spotted the Na'vi influence right away, but it's not a bad thing at all.

Very pretty! Sorry I won't give you a critique because truthfully I think, I wouldn't do you any justice by it. Love it, and I'm watching!

I like that you decided to go with the essence not accurate lighting, though I personally don't see anything wrong in that respect. :D Incredible work with this character's accessories!

The soft airbrushing and paper-like texture work wonderfully together. :)

I have to start off by saying that the title matches this perfectly... secondly, I LOVE the lighting. The colors just make everything pop, especially the eyes :D
