First off hello I am new here and already love it! I am a f/x artist hand applied, airbrush, makeup, props and of course Blood and guts. I for one love old school makeup, sitting in my shop and creating illusion and magic. To shove my hand through a chest and out the back is no easy task, but done right it looks great. The things I do, even though I am sure cgi can also, it just is not the same. Cgi is great when used right,it is an art of it's own and I do respect it but Hollywood relies on it way too much and it is abused. It looks so different when an actor is spitting up his guts in front of a camera and not a computer doing it for him. So my question is, Your thoughts on hands on or, CGI. I look forward to talking to all of you. . .
