Default January, 2010: Pandoran Creature

Hey there everyone. So since we are now officially 'in the future', being 2010 and all, we should do something sci-fi this month. Plus I think Avatar has this on all of our minds! What a frickin cool damn movie! I feel sooo lucky to have been able to be in the art dept for that back in '07. We knew it was going to be huge, but who could have expected it to be so incredibly epic, beautiful and stunningly crafted. Hats of to Weta, ILM and all the other vendors and to my many friends + colleagues who worked in the art dept... Neville Page, Ryan Church, Dylan Cole, James Clyne, Scott Patton, Jordu Schell, Daphne Yap, Tyruben Ellingson, Ben Proctor... and the list goes on. If any of you haven't seen it... go now!

Ok, so with that said... January theme is: Pandoran Creature

If you want to make a bioluminescent creature sitting on a tree branch on Pandora at night, flying by an unobtanium floating mountain, etc, go for it... Just remember that Pandoran mammals are all Hexapeds (except the Navi for some reason). Insects can be anything... and sealife... who knows... maybe we'll see that in the inevitable sequel.

Good luck and have fun!

edit: winners announced! Nice job everyone.... really great stuff. I'll make sure that Neville Page sees them (lead creature designer for Avatar), as I'm sure he will dig them... ! Congratz...
