Avatar aliens!

Nov. 21, 2008by: Dave Davis

UPDATE: These images may be nothing like what we see in the final film after all. The artist himself has declared they were just a part of his portfolio and not concept art used for the movie. More specifics can be found at Rope of Silicon.

11.21.08: Details on James Cameron's sci-fi 3D epic AVATAR have been minimal to say the least. We've known for a while that the distant planet's indigenous creatures were blue-skinned humanoids with tails and bioluminescent features, but I think we all personally know somebody like that. So how about specifics?

Got 'em, courtesy of MarketSaw, who tracked down several pieces of concept art featuring what appears to be a female of the species (which, of course, is more deadly than the male). Sadly, it will probably be a painfully long time before we learn just how similar these designs are to the full flesh/digital creations in the finished film.

The movie involves a war veteran who travels to another world and interacts with the alien culture, including one particular indigo-skinned lass. Could this be the leading lady, portrayed via "performance capture" by the foxy Zoe Saldana (aka STAR TREK's new Uhura)? Check out more of the otherworldly babe with squid-dreds RIGHT HERE.

Extra Tidbit: Cameron's films often feature a strong female character, just mostly not blue and computer-generated. Mostly.

I thought that Cameron said that wasn't right a while back. Seems most people agree.

the aliens in the abyss were more amazing and imaginative.

besides, there is only so many ways to conceptualize this thing, being that they already set that it would be a blue female that looks a lot like a human. at that point, all you can really do is change the little things, head shape, clothes, mostly anything having to do with the face, and skill keep it believable that a human could actually think it looks beautiful.

first of all, i am pretty sure these are old, seeing as how one of the [ics has the words, 'first concept' on it. second of all, we can never really understand what they will look like because all this concept art is just to get the overall general look of the thing. if this was an animated feature like a Pixar film, then we could guess what it would look like in 3D, but it is kind of hard to picture this art as a living breathing, photo realistic creature. ... but i am sure it would be cool.

Meh

I thought everyone was going on about how the aliens in this film were gonna be soo different than anything we've ever seen before. Well i've seen that alien before when it appeared in Star Wars. I'm lukewarm about this film until i see footage. Cameron is capable of making fantastic films, but after Titanic everything went to the man's head.
