According to the FX Guide, Lola VFX initially planned to achieve “Old Peggy” by filming Atwell with no make-up, "do a further shoot with old age prosthetic make-up applied," and then "carry out a digital facial re-projection of the ‘old age make-up Atwell’ onto her original body." However, due to the prostetics “restricting” the British actress’ performance, the Captain America: Winter Soldier crew resumed the make-up process with a young actress that resembles Hayley Atwell.
Then an elderly actress was cast and brought in “with the intention of seeing what real skin looked like; translucency, how does the skin sag, how does it move as she talks?” said Williams. “I said, ‘Let’s try something that we’ve never done before.’ I wanted to take the performance of the elderly woman that we had shot in a rig with eight cameras and project the skin onto the original Hayley footage that had been shot on set. We took a still frame of the skin and tracked it onto the original photography, and it looked so good. The way we did it – it was amazing – you could still see Hayley, her eyes, her mouth, her underlying structure, but we just lifted the creases and cracks and age from the elderly woman and transposed it onto Hayley’s young face.”

Age of Ultron posters from SDCC
SDCC Preview Night was awesome! I think I even saw some people here from the comic tumblr fandom (I definitely saw tumblr users because there were two girls with flower crowns but I didn’t know them).
But yeah I head fun, I need to work my schedule for tomorrow and prepare for dissapointment because I know there are going to be panels I won’t be able to make it (I already forgot about Hall H stuff). I got a cool Wanda fighting Ultron bots posters and tomorrow I’ll try snagging up the Ant-Man one.
Speaking of Marvel booth, they are already selling t-shirts with the new Thor and with Sam as Captain America, and one with CapSam, New Thor, and Superior ultra white iron Man (woah that sounds wrong). I guess Marvel did not waste time capitalizing on the whole thing.
Played some Smash Bros (again) on the Nintendo booth (looking forward to going to their lounge at the Mariott) kicked butt and I am getting a free t-shirt tomorrow woot.
Also I am thinking of cosplaying this Saturday with my Cap outfit, yay or nay? I feel like I have used that particular costume too much yet I didn’t use it last year. I have been having shitty years for costume making (personal stuff) but hopefully I can progress on that.
Guessing this probably isn’t going to make it into the movie.
I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. Marvel Adventures Hank Pym is the best Hank Pym.
auroramachine asked: Mr. Chris Pratt, you are the 3rd Chris that Marvel has collected so far. Do you think there is something special in your name or it’s just Marvel has a Chris fetish?
Chris Pratt: There’s definitely something special about my name. I’m joining pretty amazing company. Both of those guys are really incredible. I haven’t had a chance to meet Hemsworth yet, but Chris Evans… when I saw him, he literally ran across the room, gave me a huge bear hug, lifted me up, and was like, “Dude, you are going to love this!” It was like my brother congratulating me for like making the team. It was pretty cool. We bro’d out. There was a lot of love there… He’s a great guy. The point is, there’s something special about my name. You want your son to be successful? Name him Chris.
I hit a serious art block this week, so! HTTYD AU sketches.
THE BEHOLDER’s homage to the 1960s style Wasp, inspired by Tales To Astonish and those early Avengers stories by Jack Kirby, Don Heck and friends.
