Create Avatar Like Characters With Photoshop Tutorial

If you have become a huge fan of the Avatar movie and in love with the new world Pandora, you are going to love this tip. You can create your own Avatar looking poster with this Photoshop tutorial.



  • A picture you want to transform into Avatar like character
  • Adobe Photoshop (you should be able to do this in Gimp too)


Follow this excellent step-by-step tutorial to convert a regular picture into an Avatar like character.

Avatar (2009) by James Cameron is on its way to surpassing the all-time box office high of his own movie – Titanic. If you have the option, I highly recommend watching it in IMAX 3D – teh effects are stunningly awesome.

The story line isn’t anything new and you could draw parallels to movies like Dances with Wolves but it is the technology that went into making this movie and how surreal everything looks in the film that made my jaw drop for almost 3 hours.

Hope you enjoyed this little Photoshop trick and maybe surprise your better half with their favorite look! πŸ™‚
