      Hi everyone - I am from a little country called New Zealand which is the home of leading special-effects house Weta Digital. The world of Avartar has drawn inspiration from a variety of cultures and myths - The indigenous peoples of New Zealand are known as "Maori" (Mar-Or-Ree). When Jake and Neytiri press noses that is known as a "Hongi" (Hor-Ngee) which is the sharing of the same breath between two people and this "Hongi" is used in New Zealand as a welcome greeting. I am Maori, I am proud to see part of my culture hit the big-screen - Well done Mr Cameron and the countless crews that made Avartar what it is today.

      I am an artist and I am amazed that the artistic talent that is exhibited throughout this blockbuster film. Cameron has not only created a blockbuster movie in Avatar … but he now holds the title of top two highest grossing films of all times … Avatar and the Titanic. I guess you can tell I am very much a fan of Avatar. Thank you for the opportunity to win The Art of Avatar book.
    • Maxi
      2010-02-02 08:28:58
      I love the film. The quality of Camerons work is amazing. Pandora is a rich nice and very unfriendly environment. I love the film. Your tutorial is very good btw. Thank you for this!
    • 2010-02-02 08:56:07
      I have heard that despite the Art of Avatar book being thinner than some art books, there are giant fold out pages of the conceptual artwork that makes it all worthwhile. For a total experience I would really appreciate this book in my bedroom at night to set me up with some amazing dreams.

      Ya know a lot of people got post traumatic stress disorder from watching this movie. Perhaps it is a reminder that our world will never be that beautiful and I will never be 10ft, blue and have a tail. Maybe I should get some cosmetic putty and paint myself blue just to see what kind of looks I get. Though the concept of the movie was what really moved me. We need more love an togetherness.

Y este libro para mi seia estupendo ver y analizar las imagenes que en el estan de todo detalle de esta mundo creado por james cameron que creo que es un gran director de cine. Espero las dos siguentes continuaciones de avatar
