This is my first Photoshop painting ever, yay! I finally got to install Photoshop CS5 on my computer, and after testing different buttons for a few hours, I decided to try my hands at a proper painting. I've got to say that I really love that program, though I still have a looot to learn.

I decided to draw the beautiful Neytiri from Avatar, and except for the stripes and spots, I didn't use any references. That's why she looks so different (I think I failed miserably at painting her mouth -_-). Anyway, she was very fun to paint, and I think me and Photoshop are about to become very good friends. ^^


Medium: Photoshop CS5
Time spent: Maybe 15-20 hours? I had to redraw her face so many times O.o
Completed: December 12, 2010
