Is it based on any one particular Navi or are you just free forming it?

Looks like zbrush sculpting is the new hotness in character modeling. Looks great Kurt.

Looks like the sidekick Navi, I cannot remember his name, the guy Jake meets on the way out when you see the Avatars in their test tubes.

You should make a version of yourself Kurt!

As I recall their eyes seemed larger. They had huge awesome looking eyes!

Cool Mate, watch that blendshape though it looks like the nose has gotten longer with you pulling the mouth open.

A good way to do blends in Zbrush without causing the other geo to deform is to actually mask the areas out you dont want to affect. You may already know but hey...my 10 cents

That looks like a nice and smooth, artifact and bloating-less displacement render.

Looking good Kurt, No surprise there.

Pure hotness Kurt!

Really looks like the side kick in the movie. The one with the PhD that was jealous of Jake. I thought the scene where he was in Jakes face about not knowing something about the culture and Jake just holds up the picture of the girl and says "Okay, but who has a date with the chiefs daughter?" zing!
