PostSubject: Vana's Guide to Gore Series   Mon Feb 13, 2012 12:47 am

This is a tutorial I've meant to do for some time. It comes in seven parts:

Bruises
Abrasions
Nicks and Scratches
Open Wounds
Blood Drips
Blood Puddles and the Effects of Different Flooring
Zombies.

Hope you find something you need here!

I decided to do this in the usual style of my tutorials. The other way was too much hassle.

Step one. Bring out your image. I'm using Marlene's poor knee again. But she was the first one I ever drew gore on, so she gets this special place. <3

Step Two.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Here, I drew an irregular shape with a medium red brush on a medium opacity, and then drew another, smaller irregular shape on top of it.

Step Three.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Then, I used my favorite low opacity smudge to bring the outsides out and blend them to the skin, and to bring the inside out a bit.

Step Four.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I took a darker red, with a brush at full opacity and the tiniest scale I could go. I drew lines all going one direction all around it. Then, nearer to the middle I drew crosshatching lines.

Step Five.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Repeat step four, but keep closer to the middle, and use a darker red.

This is our abrasion zoomed out.

Happy abrading!

These are going to be a lot like abrasions, but with more building up of the bright red bloody parts, and also in mostly straight lines rather than cross hatches.

First, Scratches.
Step one.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Start with your image, and take a dark red, paintbrush at about 40-50% opacity and draw a line. Be sure to sort of curve it with the way the skin curves. Then, do another bit on top of that, but smaller, keeping toward the center.

Step Two.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Low opacity smudge. Smudge that puppy. Don't worry about getting it perfect yet, because we'll do it again later on.

Step Three.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Take a brighter red paintbrush, at a higher opacity this time (I went almost to 100) and draw a line in the center, following the curve of the body part, in this case the knee.

Step Four.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Low opacity smudge it.

Step Five.
Zoomed in to show details.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Same color red, the slightly brighter one, but with a smaller paintbrush. Keep the opacity to what it was for step 4. Make a series of lines, varying thicknesses. If you really look at scratches, they are almost never just one big line. Things tend to snag more than one part of the skin, no matter how microscopic.

Step Six.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I took a deeper red with an even smaller brush and added lines toward the centers of the small lines. So basically you have a big line, little lines, and even littler lines.

Zoomed out.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
It doesn't quite look right. Go back in.

Step Seven.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Smudge again, 30ish opacity. Smudge the very edges of that low opacity paintbrush in and out until the edges blend nicely into the skin, as if it's the inflamed edges of the cut.

There-- that looks better.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


Now, nicks are almost exactly the same, just much, much shorter, and occasionally thicker. The brighter red inner lines are going to be bigger because a nick, like with a knife maybe, is going to cut more skin more in one place than perhaps getting scratched by say a tree branch. Biology and common sense are really useful when doing gore, by the way. :D

Follow step one from scratches.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Smudge is again step two.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Follow step three from scratches, but make it thicker to suggest it having gone deeper.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I added another little nick next to it. This is, again, with the darker smaller red.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Smudge it lightly.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

From here on out in the tut, dodge and burn will be your new best friends, aside from paint and smudge. Here, I burned the parts where the light does not hit, or the shadowed parts.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And then...
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I dodged the part where the light DOES hit. The highlights. Speaking of highlights, make sure your dodge and burn are both set to highlight.

And here are both of them zoomed out.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Happy nicking and scratching!

Sweet! Well, this one's obviously not finished, but I plan to do one or more section a week until it is.

I tried out something new with the tut style... it was lulzy. Because I had to FIIIIGHT with photobucket, and lost, so had to cut it in half LOL

Though, right after I did that I got a gigantic bruise on MY knee that looks... just like that LOL... so I hope that doesn't happen with the rest of them XD

lol that's kinda why I kicked myself in gear to just... quit saying I'mma do it and actually do it. The goth themed comps seem to be big right now so I was hoping I could help some people out that are in them. :D

Of course... a thing to keep in mind is the more horror movies you watch, the better you'll be at gore. Most of my movies are horror.... I'm a monster movie geek. XD

I'll prolly still be enthralled and captivated by the tuts. I Love gore to an extent, I just can't watch it in a movie or in real life. It's weird. Sometimes I'm fascinated, sometimes I'm like O_O

I will, am already feeling better. Will try to get to the next part tonight, and do a little of it. Then, I think Saturday I should be much better (I seem to be healing pretty fast, THANK GOD FOR THAT.) So expect another one by Monday, if not tonight. Who knows, I might get in the zone and actually finish this next part. Open wounds and blood drips are my favorite parts LOL Oh, and Zombies.
