The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is just a couple of weeks away from being released and Peter Jackson has been talking about some of the creatures that he has had to design. Peter has compared using prosthetics for The Hobbit to using CGI.

Jackson told the LA Times, “Prosthetic makeup is always frustrating. At the end of the day, if you want the character to talk, which a lot of the Orcs and goblins do, you can design the most incredible prosthetics, but you’ve still got eyes where the eyes have to be and the mouth where the mouth has to be. That human triangle, two eyes and a mouth, is very difficult to disguise, no matter what you do with the ears and heads and chins and noses.”
 
He added, “One of the things we’re doing on ‘The Hobbit’ — which is definitely technology that we have available now that we didn’t have 10 years ago — we often shoot the Orcs as people in suits but they just have a leotard on their head with motion capture dots on it. A lot of the Orcs even though they’re played by performers, the makeup is going to be CG makeup, which allows me to put their eyes further apart. They can open their mouths and scream in a much more dynamic way than they ever could.”

Peter also talked about the difficulties of designing dragons, “The trouble with redesigning dragons I’ve found is… you very quickly can go into science fiction territory, and I don’t want to do that. I want to present the most venal, scary, decrepit, nasty dragon I possibly can.”
 
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage and Hugo Weaving and is set to be released on December 14.
