So, I have been promising a list of books that I have on my shelves. Here are a few to get you going:
This is the book that I most highly recommend for all-around makeup fx info-
And in a close second place are Mike Spatola’s books- which are great makeup books to practice the demonstrations that he lays out in detail.
This is the book that i found at a young age that showed a lot of basic principals for mold making
And of course, any makeup fx library isnt complete without Tom Savini’s books. I STILL look through them.
We often rant about how its frustrating that the new generations dont know the artists and technicians that came before them.
When I found this book it opened my eyes to so many creators of my favorite classic makeups
This is another great book that has been on my shelves since I was young.
And you cant talk about books without mention Vin Keho’s great books
Last week at San Diego Comic Con, Frank unveiled his latest project for Tested.com: A full Rancor suit! Using reference from the LucasFilm archives and from the Rancor creator Phil Tippett himself, Frank worked round the clock for two weeks to create this amazing Rancor.
For those of us who weren’t able to visit SDCC (myself included) this video is a great substitute. Thanks to the folks at Tested for making it happen.
