Cameron Wants Us to What the 'Avatar' Characters?

I've seen the Avatar trailer, and if this is really what James Cameron wanted, then he failed. Because - and I don't know how else to say this - I don't want to have sex with the blue chick.

Concept artist Jordu Schell is responsible for the final look of the Na'Vi and he explained to io9 exactly what The King of the World wanted that look to convey. "Well, he wanted them to be very beautiful. And I do believe that, at some point, he said something to the effect of...the audience has to want to fuck her," said Schell.

"I mean, Jim is very plain in his language." Indeed.

"So I made something that, I don't know if I really particularly wanted to fuck it," the artist continued, "but it was certainly a beautiful alien."

Maybe Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) comes across more sexily in 3-D, but to me she kind of has a weird, bluish Jocelyn Wildenstein vibe. I certainly wasn't all Jessica Rabbit about her. But it worked for Cameron, who Schell admits has a type.

"He definitely wanted it — because he really prefers women that are kind of athletic, and buff and stuff like that, so I, you know, designed something with big hands and feet, a big presence that felt really big and strong."

But if were left up to the artist, Neytiri would have a whole different look. "I mean, I would have sculpted, I don't know, Gretchen Mol or something."

All kidding aside, that really is a great article over at io9, and it's not the sort of coverage you normally see. We did something similar when we interviewed Benjamin Button effects supervisor Eric Barba on Oscar weekend, and it's really enlightening to get that kind of perspective from time to time.

what no "Furries" to support this idea
there is an entire subculture of anime that is all about getting it on with animals that look like people
very very similar.

Blue aliens come off as really un-sexy even in porn. People usually root for healthy stuff and blue is the colour of the dead.

Carv, you actually saw New In Town? Wow...you must have been "viewing under the influence of girlfriend"

Great post. Friggin' hilarious. On a serious note though, has anyone else noticed that ever since we started getting peaks of this movie, what we would mostly get a peak at was of the pic at at the top of the page? I'm talking about the up close shot of the Na'Vi character that appears to be the one Zoe plays. I'm basing that off the fact that the Na'Vi in that picture/poster looks to be feminine. Anyway, my point is that looking at the Na'Vi from that angle in this shot, its as if the eyes are what we're meant to concentrate on. Even when the full picture was released, the eyes are what still captured the viewers'....uhhh...well....eye. And you have to admit that it looks like the eyes have a sedcutive and sultry effect. Maybe that's how Cameron is trying to draw us in??? Ooooooooor...maybe I'm just a sick wannabe Na'Vi fucker.

E, I did see it under the influence of girlfriend, and on DVD rather than in a theater (thank the Maker). But two wrongs certainly didn't make a right. Oh, and Mr. Woodcock made me want to punch a writer and director clean in the mouth.

Carv, the only thing that saved you from me coming out there and pulling your man card, was the fact that it was a rental.

It all depends on the people and their mind, some people do some people dont. I wouldnt be suprised if i wanted to fuck her, but it will be decided after i see the movie.

Currently trying to date a blue alien in Mass Effect. :) So I am on it. Blue is quite sexy.

I liked the alien in Species. Even E.T. looked kinda hot, in the right light, in that cheer leader outfit... Right?

Well, both the male and female Na'vi look rather ridiculous. Considering all the cool design options for CG aliens, making them look like cyanotic siamese cats with alopecia is surely a mistake?

I saw the movie,and I do want to fuck her

Saw it opening day, in IMAX 3D. At the start, I'd disagree with you - I thought they were too wierd. After spending the first hour of Jake's life in among the Na'avi, and getting good looks at the girl from multiple, athletic angles... and with that little necklace thing CONSTANTLY threatening to flip out of the way and reveal a nice B-cup alien breast... yeah, it got to me finally, and by the end of the film I found the na'avi very attractive myself.

Strange how that worked, wouldn't have predicted it. Schell picked the right female figure and got all the proportions right for whever makes an attractive 10-foot blue alien female. I suspect anyone who likes the figures on attractive female athletes will find the na'avi attractive too (unless you are the type to find buxom, short, somewhat chunky chicks with lots of junk in the trunk your type - you won't particularly like the na'avi if you like that, they are the opposite).

As for human vs alien... in proportion, their bodies are almost toally "human" from the neck down, so its not a matter of them being SO different... and if you find her body attractive in proportions and only the skin color turns you off... I guess you've never dated outside your own race before, then.

Overall, an awesome movie... and the details of the world itself could fill an encyclopedia. Very well done.
