Hi everyone! In another post, someone asked about if I had done any layered Avatar pieces yet, and the challenge intrigued me. But, to be truly honest, I’m not sure I’d be able to do the piece justice with the coloring, I tend to struggle with the various shades of blue, and I have a bunch of other projects on my plate at the moment, so it would be a while before I got around to it anyway.
But, if anyone wants to make one of these and give it a go, here’s what I came up with, I’d love to see what you end up doing with it!
I know I am a rarity, but I loved that movie. As did my daughter. We even tried to learn a little of the language, since it was like klingon, in that there was actually enough language to use, and not just for the movie. I got a tattoo on my ribs of a compass rose with the words Oel Ngati Kameie around it. (So I would always be able to find my daughter)
Yeah I remembered liking the movie at the time, but the cultural footprint has always seemed very small compared to the fact that it was the biggest grossing movie of all time…. Never really knew why that was. I’m sure someone has done a 2 hour video essay on YouTube about this, I just am not quite that curious
Be interesting to see how you handle the Disney ride. I rode it last month and it has to be the most technically capable ride I’ve been on. It was very hard not to believe I was riding/flying - the dive-bombing down to the clouds & cliffs along with the feel of the cycle I was sitting on (“riding”) as it moved and transmitted vibrations was extraordinarily well done.
I love rollercoasters. But those screen rides with the 3d glasses leave me with horrible migraines. I used to take my kids to Universal every Friday since we had annual passes. Between those rides and the soul-crushing traffic coming home, I needed all weekend to recover.
I was much happier with Knotts berry farm passes. No screens, just real-old rides…I want Disney passes, but I want to make sure we can actually use them before committing to that huge price tag…
