Default Canine features???

What if the Na'vi had canine features rather than feline? I like cats, but I like dogs a-lot more. So I was wondering, what you would think if the Na'vi were dog-like rather than cat-like? Would it affect the movie in any way had you not seen it the way it is now?

I think it would be pretty awesome...but that's just me.

well, I really like dogs too. But I mean, come on, floppy-eared Na'vi with drool coming out of their mouth just isn't working for me. Cats are just...graceful, so I guess that's why the Na'vi are more feline-like.
I think people would think it was a joke.

Yeah, but not every dog has floppy ears and drools. I mean, look at wolves. I'm not saying they would have to have a long snout, floppy ears, drooling and clumsy.

They could still have pointy ears. They would hunt in packs. They could still be quite beautiful if their facial features were done right.

maybe something like this...



But not so pronounced ears or snout.

Haha, it just wouldn't be the same. A human/dog face would look strange.

Yeah, it definitely wouldn't be the same romantically. I guess it would be better if the Na'vi were more...what's the word...fierce? Animalistic? I dunno...it would have to be a totally different specie.

I think it would be awesome, though...maybe in a sequel...on a different moon or planet.

Yeah, the feline features are much better than canine features. The nose is flatter than a humans and people already make fun of others if they have a big nose so an even bigger nose would just be goofy.

Yeah, you guys are right. I guess it isn't a good idea, unless(as I said) they were more animalistic. But yeah, it wouldn't work for the Na'vi.

I'm actually fairly neutral between dogs and cats... I like both, but I don't think I would like either as actual features on a person... I can see why some people say the Na'vi have that look, but I don't think it is exactly the same.

I prefer dogs than cats but when it comes to their features being on a Na'vi: cats>dogs
