We’ve celebrated some incredibly daring, visionary special effects artists in recent months. Of course, there’s a pretty thick, bold line between convincing the human eye that a young woman is pulling a detachable showerhead through her torso and painstakingly creating realistic injury makeup effects lifelike enough to make the emergency room carnage on “ER” look like it would be right at home at an elementary school Halloween carnival.
Meet Marc Clancy, the rising Instagram attraction known online as Powdah. The self-taught makeup artist’s account occasionally gathers controversy for showing off unsettlingly realistic appliances fashioned from such everyday materials as wool and latex. Just check out these awesome FX how to videos on YouTube.
We’ll just leave it at this and let you all browse his astounding portfolio of posts: artists such as Clancy epitomize the undefinable advantage that practical effects will always hold over CGI. When crafted with great care, digital effects can look absolutely remarkable. Be that as it may, nothing bolsters suspension of disbelief quite so dependably and enduringly as meticulously designed tangible, physical assets.
