Hello my name is John Cherevka I have been a key artist at Legacy efx a.k.a. Stan Winston Studios for ten years. I sculpt and paint traditionally and as of late I have been delving into digital.
I painted this fake head of Sam Worthington and the legs below for Avatar. Im on the right Jamie Gove is on the left.

Welcome to the blog, John! Awesome work. I'm totally jealous of you for working on Avatar. Do you have any more photos of those huge Na'vi sculpts that you can show us?:)
that spider guy is cool :)
Great work !
Thanks folks. I'll have to dig up some better pics. The na'vi were sculpted in the computer by Digital genius Scott Patton. I only Painted Jake and a Nateri and also a few background guys.
Aaah! You work for Winston Studios?!
If I can ever whip my skills into some serious shape, that would be my dream job, right there. No doubt about it. Your work is more than proof that you deserve the job. Excellent pieces!
I may be ignorant asking this, but for the movie avatar what was the purpose of painting this props?
was it just to get a physical representation of what the team wanted, or where these used in the actual films sometime? I assumed 100% of the na'vi had to be digital?
Amazing! There is no other word for your work!
Wow, I really like the spider-guy! Nice and creepy.
Davi - Jim wanted them to be belivable in real life. If that worked, then making them digital would also be beliveable. They worked out the costumes on them and also had real lighting reference on set the day of shooting. All of the final work was digital but I can see on Jake where they photographed my work and used it on the 3d model. I hope that answers why we made those.
Wow! So cool to see those massive sculpts back there! Great work!
Yeah john that answers my question :)
cant wait to see more from you!
