Rick Baker’s realistic Popeye

    I think it looks amazing, but he made him look too old. It’s like a Popeye/Pappy mashup.

  2. Donovan says

    Of course he looks old, a lifetime at sea with the sun and wind will do that to you.

    Creepy as hell! O.O

    But I don’t think he would’a been so wrinkled? And I echo Ian’s post! :)

    I agree, it looks amazing, but there are a couple of things that could be done to make it look more like Popeye, and less like an old sailor.
    For one, he’s missing the wrong eye. Popeye’s Right eye is the one that’s missing.
    Also, where is the famous chin cleft? That’s one of Popeye’s defining facial characteristics, and it’s completely missing here.
    It may seem nitpicky, but its the details that really sell something.
