Blood and Bruises Tutorial by dust-bite Blood and Bruises Tutorial by dust-bite
This tutorial has been something I've wanted to make for a long time. I've been asked how do I make blood so many times, I thought it was time for a tutorial along with a few extra things to learn about!

This is the way I do thing, if it's not right, I apologize! I'm still learning myself, and hopefully those out there will learn a few things as well!

Also I finally uploaded a video to youtube! Please be sure to watch it: [link]
It's the making of the image here :la:

So tell me what you think, hopefully it helps a few people out c:

Suggester's words: I'm not the best when it comes to digital art, but Blood and Bruises Tutorial by *dust-bite was very easy to follow. The artist really broke down the steps one by one so that everyone can follow along. Also, this tutorial is perfect for anyone who wants to bloody or bruise up a character for any upcoming Halloween picture! ;D ( Suggested by suzaku009 and Featured by FantasyStock )

It's an amazing tutorial! The only thing that's missing is the red eye. The white parts of eye gets really red when you're hit. But that's just a small detail, everything else is really usefull and i'll use it one day for sure! So thanks for making it!
