But, Dormouse – [In reply to] Can't Post

Have we not seen Bloom off-screen (of the film) in the Legolas costume, and isn't his face fairly 'normal' looking in those clips? To me, the look in the trailer is so unnatural that I think it must be achieved with CGI. Scary…


In Reply To
Well, OK, if you can show me that I'm wrong, I'll accept graciously, but I am deeply sceptical of how far the things that are blamed on CGI around here actually are down to CGI. Bilbo's face, I'm sure, is foundation.

It seems to me that trying to de-age someone digitally would be horrendously difficult and time-consuming, because the signs of age on a human face are subtle things which would change constantly with movement and light. Make-up, being a simpler and quicker option would surely be preferred.
