Build Your Own Hometree With Exclusive Avatar Concept Art

Illustration for article titled Build Your Own Hometree With Exclusive Avatar Concept Art

If you really want to join the Na'vi, you're going to have to understand their way of life. Luckily, artist Craig Shoji shared with us some of his Avatar concept art showing what the Na'vi eat and how they live.


We interviewed Shoji as part of our third massive feature on the design of James Cameron's Avatar a while back, and he shared with us some of the insane details he and other designers came up with about the Na'vi way of life — including their eating habits, and the exact type of plant they use to make their banshee-catchers.


Afterwards, Shoji was kind enough to send us some more exclusive art showing the Na'vi traditions in much greater detail. Whether you're a human anthropologist wishing to study the peoples of Pandora, or a member of the Omaticaya tribe eager to learn the way of your own people, these images should be invaluable.

[Thanks Craig!]

See, this is the Avatar I like. The extremely detailed world building. I can do without the blocky madlibs script and hamfisted dialog.

Really disappointed in the concept art book. It had practically nothing in it and was waay to expensive. For a movie that took YEARS to world build (and probably has a bible written for said world building), I want an art book with some meat to it.
