My Bio
Hello there! I am from the good ole' UK. I am a photographer and jewellery crafter

I've been on deviantART since June 2005. I got a seniorship in October 2007 and a deviousness award in November 2007. I was accepted into the MN@ team in September 2008 until June 2011, so I am a very proud member.

On deviantART, I am a keen photographer and horror SFX artist, as well as a long-time supporter of the other artists around.

In my other time, I work as a geologist, meaning if I throw a rock your way, I'll be able to tell you what rock it is, and how good it is for holding oil. But yeah- it won't be that much of a consolation if it hits you.

I also have my own business in the making, selling jewellery and accessories. At the moment, my work can be found on Etsy at Xerces Art on Etsy, and some items are also currently on sale at Firefly Shiny Shop, Wrexham , North Wales, UK

I can see you're improving already!
The darker blood is certainly adding a little more impacting! The blood on the wrist is looking good- nice and thick and dark. The blood on the rest of the hand looks a little thin and lightly coloured in parts, but I love how it is moving its way down the finger to a thicker glob at the end.
I think the scars are looking more natural here- you have already blended them quite nicely into the pic. I can just see some tiny scars under the blood which look a little out of place- perhaps make them a little darker so they stand out beneath the blood. They look kinda of highlighted at the moment under the blood compared to the rest.
But you've made a great improvement already. Well done <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":-)" title=":-) (Smile)" />
