Tutorial for Scars [triggering content]



TW: Anyone that can not take any sort of gore/wound/blood content should not look at this deviation.
If you have dealt with self harm I also advice you not to look at this deviation.
In the end you make your own decisions.

Scars are quite often just drawn as white stripes, but there's a lot of variation in them.

Wounds are as varied as humans, and so is skin colour. don't be afraid to mix around with other colours.
There is a lot of browns and reds in wounds. (Green and yellow if a wound get's infected)

It's important to remember that a colour never consists of just that colour. It will always be a mixture of different hue's and saturation.
If you're not sure which colours you should use just try some out, you will see if it does not work and you can just press ctrl z. Just try until you're pleased.

Everything is drawn in 'mypaint' which is a free program that takes only a minute to install.
