    avatarAvatar, as you probably already know, has made just over one gazillion dollars at the intergalactic box office. So now, everyone wants to be an Avatar themselves to cash in on the phenomenon.

    Of course, few of us have the multi-million dollar budget necessary to turn ourselves into a full fledged, James Cameron worthy Avatar.

    avatar meYoutube to the rescue. This is just one of dozens of tutorials using Photoshop to turn yourself into a Na’vi from far, far away.

    Now, if you’re Photoshop skills aren’t up to snuff, you can also try the Create a Na’vi Avatar page created by Kerri M. I ended up with the Avatar on the right after just a few minutes of clicking. And if I say so myself, I look pretty darn Hollywood. Don’t you think?
