Batista as Drax The Destroyer

BusinessInsider.com has a very interesting article up about the process that WWE Superstar Dave Batista went through for his make-up during filming as Drax The Destroyer for Guardians of the Galaxy. David White, special make-up effects designer, had this to say about the process.

“Drax started as a five-hour makeup, and slowly the time began to fall away, as expected,” White tells Business Insider. “A makeup that extensive is a real slog for the team as it’s so complex.”

“Every day, a Vac forma [plastic mold] of David’s exact body shape with perforated holes in it to indicate exactly where the prosthetics start and finish was offered up,” says White. “This had rice paper skin illustrator airbrushed through it showing the map.”
