Sure wish I had found this three years ago when I started my comic instead of two months after I finished it.

Whoa nice tutorial, thanks! :D  Question- is it crucial to memorize where/whether an arterial  or veinal cut should take place? 
verticalfish's avatar
Not really, just to know that veins are more superficial and therefore more easily cut. It takes really deep cuts to damage arteries.

Ah, I see. Thanks! ;3  You learn something new everyday!
