quick blood tips by XXAnemia quick blood tips by XXAnemia
i get asked for blood drawing tips a lot and so i just drew this for someone on muro and figured i might as well upload it!
i'm still planning on doing a big proper tutorial with both traditional and digital tips but maybe someone will still find this useful... it's a very simple guide, just the main two types of blood patterns i tend to do
And the one thing i see so many people doing wrong! never use a really soft brush to blood! even when it soaks into clothes it's never going to look so neat and blended.

You can also make some parts of the blood darker to make it look better, and put shine on drips

that being said! there isn't one right and wrong way to draw blood, the more you practise the more likely you'll be to find a way that works for you

I'll scrap this when i make a proper tutorial!

Here are some pics with finished up blood if you want to see how i do it more detailed.

I think the only time when you could do blood with an airbrush is when it's like...soaking into a paper or a bedspread or some shit.

this will be helpful. does it apply to other substances, saliva, goo etc? or is it the specific consistency of blood that makes it drip/splash in this manner?

I think goop and saliva can both be done the same way..kinda like blood you don't want to air brush it and make it look unrealistic..xD
