Painting Blood Step by Step by ConceptCookie Painting Blood Step by Step by ConceptCookie
In this Citizen tutorial we go step by step through the process on drawing realistic looking blood. Check the full tutorial with tips, downloadable resources, and guides here:cgcookie.com/concept/2013/10/1…

This is a concept that can be done for a multitude of areas from horror concepts, to a wound on a character. Now, there are a few things to keep in mind while thinking about drawing blood.

- You know that saying, “blood is thicker than water“, well that applies to drawing it as well. Blood is thick and it’s consistency and color varies depending on how it’s shown
- Blood is red BUT not ultra neon red. Blood is rich is scarlet and when it is clumped together or dries it appears almost black.
- It may be a liquid but it’s thicker and wouldn’t run as easily as water or other thin liquids.
- It has a reflective surface but it’s highlights are highly concentrated.

This image is a simple step by step reference resource in case you ever need a visual guide to help you out when drawing blood for your own concepts. In terms of COLOR, this was done with just the 5 colors you see on the top of this reference guide. Each step uses only the single color above it. No need for grabbing a slew of colors when it can be accomplished with only a handful!
