HMMM! Can you say Copyright Infringement?

A lot of people ARE saying it...I wonder whether or not Roger Dean will; he's certainly aware of it, since there's a page on his site about the similarity...

Watching the film I recognized the resemblance early on, it was actually the texture on the dragons' wings that made me certain Dean had been involved.

I waited patiently at the end, waiting to catch his name amongst the horde of designers involved in making Avatar... I couldn't believe he wasn't mentioned, not even a hat tip.

Thanks for the comparative visual study buddy.
