Look at gorgeous photos from her portfolio. CGI vs. make-up Movies are loading up on computer generated imagery. Are you tired of it, or do you embrace it? Some CG characters are not convincing (remember Jar Jar Binks), but others are quite good. And digital houses are taking care of more and more effects that were once the domain of the make-up artist. In this article, writer Ron Magid stands at the intersection of make-up and CGI and takes a careful look around. Rick Baker, Richard Taylor, Ve Neill and Keith VanderLaan share how they're staying at the top of their craft, and evolving. Movie critic Leonard Maltin gives us the moviegoer's perspective on it all.
