How to Draw These 7 Personalities?! Let them Draw themselves!

I can’t stop myself from writing this post…so I’d begin by apologizing to my serious visitors – I am sorry! This isn’t a deliberate, thoughtful post – it’s what the netizens would call an impulse post.

You see I came upon the search string, “How to Draw Ozzy Osbourne” in my blog’s data. Isn’t that the joke of the day?! Do you really need to figure it out? Really?!

You see…you don’t make Ozzy’s caricature – he’s already done the job for you. Instead, you make his portrait! So if you can draw, you can draw his caricature!

Here are some other “How to Draw the Caricature of…”! Smile Away:-)

Caricature/Cartoon of Avatar – The Story – A Verbal Caricature

Do you find the Na’vi men handsome?

Caricature of Avatar, the James Cameron Block Buster Hollywood Movie.

Look into my Eyes!

I haven’t seen Avatar yet. Somehow the prospects of watching a human fall in love with a 10 ft blue-skinned “beauty” through his genetically engineered avatar don’t appeal to me. This of course isn’t everything about the movie and so I am confident that the other great things about it will motivate me into watching it. Avatar, a James Cameron movie has beat the record of Titanic in revenues, and it has used a variety of hi-tech multimedia effects. They say that the Avatar imagery outshines everything that we’ve ever seen before.

Here’s a quick verbal caricature of the story (Don’t read if you haven’t watched the movie yet.)

Avatar – A Verbal Caricature of the Movie (from Whatever I’ve read and heard!)

About a century and a half from now, the rapacious humans have exhausted Earth’s natural resources, and have somehow (don’t ask me how) found another place to exploit. It is the moon in the Alpha Centauri Star system, and is aptly named Pandora. Humans, like Terriers, love to dig, and so they dig in Pandora, to obtain Unobtainium (and they succeed! Remember, Nothing is Impossible.) But then there are others. These others are called Na’vis and they are blue-skinned, slim, and about 10 feet tall – this obviously makes me wonder what the bending moment of these Na’vis is?

Never mind their long, lithe bodies – they are the mix of the primitive and the evolved. And so it isn’t easy for the Humans to obtain Unobtainium on a sustained basis, as the Na’vi resist them (and also because the finicky humans can’t breathe in the Pandora’s box.) So the humans do what they do best. They use their usual underhand espionage tactics and slip in as genetically engineered avatars controlled by real humans through their minds – this is where I smell a bit of the Matrix concept – but as “an idea cannot be copyrighted, only its expression can be,” I am sure nobody would be suing Mr. Cameron.

Anyway, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) is found worthy of being sent out in form of a blue-skinned, 10 ft, alien. After some twists and turns of the Hollywood movie variety, he’s “rescued” by a beautiful Neytiri (Zoe Saldana,) the lovely Na’vi princess who he falls in love with. (Now that’s something that doesn’t connect. If I play the part of a mouse in a movie, will I fall in love with a real mouse?)

Next there are more twists and turns, which you can read about here. The important point to note is that in the end, Jake happily becomes the new leader of the Na’vi tribe and his Na’vi avatar is made permanent by the blue-skinned, 10 ft, aliens! I don’t know how he jumped and swung from tree to tree (Someone tell me that this swinging/flying doesn’t look like “Tarzan” or “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon” variety! If my height doubled, I won’t even be able to walk!)

All said and done, if this movie has beat the world’s ever highest grosser Titanic, it must be good, and the Na’vis must be beautiful!

PS: The blue bodies, the “avatar”, and Neytiri…all make me think that James Cameron has read some Hindu Mythology as well. Ever wonder why his script was exiled into his cupboard for 14 (no more, no less, but 14 years)? The exact period of Rama’s exile? And Na’vi? It means – New, in many Indian Languages:-)

Ain’t those Na’vi men Handsome?

Update: March 14, 2010:

When I created and posted this caricature, I didn’t expect these many searches for “Neytiri Naked” to end up on this page! I can understand the disappointment that these starry-eyed, steamy-breathed bounty-hunters must feel when our self-proclaimed Handsome Na’vi Avatar sneers at them from this page!

The continuation of the thought that resulted in the verbal caricature makes me wonder why we are so keen on seeing what a female alien looks like naked? (There wasn’t a single search for the male Na’vi avatar naked!) I guess those searchers and researchers must’ve somehow guessed that Neytiri was actually a vertically stretched human called Zoe Saldana, with blue paint all over her body! Only that could explain those searches – otherwise, why wouldn’t we search for naked Guerilla, naked chimpanzee, and so on, and so forth!…the Caricaturist wonders!

Well, for those who are keen on the Male Na’vi (Women visitors, come forward,) I’ve uploaded the calendar.
