Creating Jakoby - Studio ADI
Studio ADI worked closely with filmmaker David Ayer and Academy Award winning Makeup Artist Chris Nelson to create the look of Orc cop, Nick Jakoby (played by Joel Edgerton). The appliances were created at ADI then applied on-set by Nelson and his team of makeup artists. Here is exclusive footage of the process from Steve Koch's clay sculpt to the first glue-down.
Jakoby, played by actor Joel Edgerton, was the first character I was working on. He was described as a pit bull type character who is mostly sweet and loyal but scary when need to be. Initially the biggest challenge was to come up with an Orc design which maintained the likeness and recognition of Joel’s face.
The Gang boss of the thug Orcs. His design needed to look meaner, scarier and bigger than Jakoby. We were still developing the overall look of the Orcs but we already knew that all of them should have big wide tusks. In this concept I played with the idea to make them look more like boar tusks.
