Dneg’s crea­ture team can face Many chal­lenges. for Dead­pool 2, one of the Weird­est WAS Mak­ing WADE Wil­son’s baby legs

Con­cept: DNEG’S art depart­ment helped con­trib­ute con­cepts for how Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wil­son would ap­pear with baby legs, which are grow­ing back af­ter they have been ripped off by Jug­ger­naut.

Live ac­tion: Reynolds was filmed wear­ing a track­ing suit. “Ryan Reynolds was very in­volved through­out the pro­duc­tion,” says DNEG crea­ture su­per­vi­sor Adam Van­ner, “and gave us reg­u­lar feed­back on ideas. He even sent us videos of him de­liv­er­ing lines from his phone when we asked for more ref­er­ence ma­te­rial.”

Cg legs: “The ap­proach was an­i­ma­tion driven, and we put lots of cor­rec­tive blend­shapes within the rig to add ten­dons and mus­cle groups to al­low an­i­ma­tion to see essen­tially the fi­nal re­sult,” ex­plains Van­ner. “We did a fi­nal pass for self con­tact us­ing ncloth and some small re­fine­ments. We also sim­u­lated his hoodie and shirt so that it fit­ted his small pro­file.”
