In an exercise in photo manipulation, I attempted to create a basic Na'vi male as seen in James Cameron's Avatar (2009). He is an amalgamation of roughly a dozen images, which have been greatly recolored, distorted, and otherwise manipulated to create an alien creature in this iconic style. A variety of Photoshop techniques were used in the process, many focusing on the organization of layers and different adjustment layers. A great amount of detail went into creating depth in the image by marking dark shadows and bright highlights, all around tying together the many different elements that went into this final product.
