Prosthetic mask and creature maquette from Hellboy II: The Golden Army..

Ron Perlman was the man behind the titular red demon mask in both 2004's Hellboy and the 2008 sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

These are photographs of the actual facial prothetic that he (and various stunt men) wore to become 'Hellboy' in the second movie, along with a fantastic maquette of an elemental forest god featured in the movie.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army received a nomination for Best Makeup (Mike Elizalde and Tom Floutz) at the prestigious 81st Academy Awards in 2009, but rather sadly lost the Oscar to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

This wonderful maquette of an elemental forest god, formed the basis of the CGI creature that 'Hellboy' fights and reluctantly defeats in the film.
