Avatar Concept Art [UPDATED] November 21, 2008 7:16 pm

UPDATE: Turns out the photos weren’t legitimate concept art from Avatar and I’ve removed them from the site.  The original artist left the following note in the comments below:

I’m Jonay Bacallado, the author of the images. They are part of my artwork, my personal artwork, and it has nothing to do with the actual concept art of the film. The interview has been removed from http://www.plansiete.com as well, I’ve spoken about his incident with responsibles of the program, because information it’s not accurate, and things can be misunderstood. Please, I have to ask you to remove this information, because the images shown are part of my own portfolio, no one has asked for authorisation, and of course,and most importantly, those designs have nothing to do with the real concepts and designs. I spoke during the interview about my experience, images were taken from my website, and they asume they are real concept art, but is not. The editing odf the video is quite confussing and may lead people to think it’s the real concept art done, but it’s not!!! Just to emphasise what I’m trying to explain mention that the design of characters have been done by another team, and we only get invlolved in costume, and as I said before, Avatar is far from this personal creation of mine included in my portfolio. This would get me into trouble, and without a reason, because this is NOT AVATAR CONCEPT ART. So please, people who follows Avatar news deserve to know that this concepts are FAKES, they are my creation, but have nothing to do with the work done in pre-production. Thank you, Jonay Bacallado.

Director James Cameron talked at the Microsoft Advance ’08 today about his upcoming sci-fi 3D film Avatar.

“‘Avatar’ will make people truly experience something,” said Cameron. “One more layer of the suspension of disbelief will be removed. All the syn-thespians are photo-realistic. Now that we’ve achieved it, we discovered CG characters in 3D look more real than in 2D. Your brain is cued it’s a real thing not a picture and discounting part of [the] image that makes it look fake.”
