In the world of film and theatre, character transformation takes a lot of work, skill, and creativity. Dedicated solely to SFX, this book will show you tips and techniques from a seasoned SFX makeup artist with years of film, TV, and theatrical experience. Not only will this book take you through the many genres that need a special effects makeup artist, like horror, fantasy, and sci-fi, but it will also tell you about the tools you will need, how to maintain your toolkit, how to take care of the actor's skin, and how to airbrush properly when HD is involved.

The author shows you how to sculpt and mold your own makeup prosethetics, focusing on how human anatomy relates to sculpture to create the most realistic effects. Case studies feature some of today's top makeup artists including Neill Gorton, Christopher Tucker, Miles Teves, Jordu Schell, Mark Alfrey, Matthew Mungle, Christien Tinsely, Vittorio Sodano, and Mark Gabarino.

Put your new techniques into practice right away and see how some of the looks from the book were achieved with the step-by-step tutorials on the must-have DVD.
