This tutorial was made to help step you through the process of making a Na’vi from the AVATAR movie.
Creating posters with Photoshop can be a lot of fun and there are unlimited opportunities. Anyone who knows me knows that I love movies. I recently was overcome with inspiration when I saw the new  James Cameron’s Avatar Movie Posters, they are pretty sick. In this tutorial I will show you guyssome simple but efficient techniques that will help you make your own Avatar movie poster from a portrait picture of yourself. This tutorial should be used with many variants and additional techniques unique to the artist.
Note: The version of Photoshop that I’ve use is CS4. You can buy it from Adobe.com (buy it, not download it for free).You can also download a 30 day trial from here.
Update:I’ve got a lot of emails from people who wanted me to ‘Avatarize’ their pictures. I can do it for you for a small donation, just send me a message at: blueprint.contact @ gmail.com
This is the original picture:

This is what we are going to create:

Step 01
The first step is to show you from what pictures i get my inspiration:

Step 02
Step two is preparation. First, make sure that thepicture you’re working with is as large, clear and high quality as possible, the quality of the original picture will determine the quality of the final product.

Step 03
Open the picture, duplicate the background picture layer (now you should have two copies of the same image in your layers menu) and use the Healing Brush Tool (selectthe source from the forehead area, or something similar) to recreate the nose which is flatter and broader as compared to the average human nose.

Step 04
Select the skin areas of the model with the Lasso Tool, like in the picture below, and pres CTRL+U to open the Hue/Saturation menu.

Step 05
Now we are going to make the shadows for the nose. Select with the Lasoo tool the areas like in thepicture below, pres CTRL+C and CTRL+V (to copy/paste to a new layer) and set the Blend Mode to the new layer to Multiply. Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and set it to 2.9

Repeat the process 2 times for the other side.
Step 06
Duplicate the layer from the step 04 and put in on top the nose shadows layers. Select the lips and the nose with Lasso Tool and pres Ctrl+U to open theHue/Saturation menu again. Hue to +99 until you get a pink color.

Set the Opacity to 54% until you get the lips and the nose to a purple color, and the shadows of the nose to be less visible. Take the picture below for example:

Make all the layers Flatten if you are sure if you are satisfied with the result so far.
Step 07
Here comes the most difficult part, the nose and the eyes. I usedLiquify in the “Filter” menu, and simply moulded the nose and the eyes into that of a Na’vi’s face, while checking back and forth on actual screenshots.
For the nose use the Forward Warp Tool to make it more flatter (from the Liquify options) and for the eyes use the Bloar Tool to make them more bigger .

Extra styling: The lips of the model are very big, try to make the smaller with the Forward WarpTool.

Step 08
Na’vi irises are considerably larger than human irises in relation to the size of the whole eye.
Make a new copy of the last layer and with the Eraser Tool make some holes like in the image below:

Make a new layer and put it underneath the current layer, here we will put the eyes.
The eyes i used are from the picture below:

Or you can use the eyes from the official...
