What i do is wash the genreal area with some heaily thinned down blood red, then i use some less thinned down blood red right around the wound. for the actual wound, i first paint it black, then i paint it with red gore. if its a lage wound, like say a burn, ill dry brush some blood red on the wound. This really doesnt look that good, although i did get a really good burn on one of my scouts faces. ill try to get a pic up. in the meantime, i would like to know how you paint an open wound.
I generally use scab red and blood red for the wound, sometimes with a few white areas, and then apply a coat of red ink. Red ink on top of white and blood red generally gives a more fresh wound look -- I think I actually prefer red ink on white as opposed to blood red for a slick blood look -- while the scab red areas will generally give an older/closed wound look (possibly why it was named scab red...).
Thanks again guys. sorry for all the questions, ive been painting for three years and i should be better.
I have been painting for 20 years. I am still learning. There is absolutely nothing wrong with asking questions. It is how we get better!
Yep, never hurts to ask a question before undertaking something new. That's what I love about painting minis though -- trying new things to make them look awesome, and trying to figure out how to go about it to make them look the way you want...and it never hurts to ask around to see if anyone else has advice -- no reason to repeat someone else's mistakes if they can just tell you in the first place.
i use similar techniques to the ones mentioned.
what i would however strongly recoment is this- dont just paint the wounds on, use a craft knife to gough out a little plastic, then surround it with a little greenstuff formed ot give the impression that the fleash has been ripped open, a 3D injury will look much better than a 2D one, reguardless of how its painted, its also easier to paint a 3D injury.
hope this helps
I make blood by first mixing magenta ink with flesh wash, and then dabbing the paintbrush with the mix where i want it to be.
Then i lightly apply scab red to the blood and then when that dries i paint on gloss varnish.
Another good way of painting blood is to go Doom 3 style, start off with chaos black by and then keep applying red gore/ blood red to it.
You can find me on Dakka, B&C and Portent. :D
Portent never dies
If you look at my assualt marine in the post above yours i just did a basecoat of red did white around the wound and a few patches of scab red and put layers of red ink on....
thesalamander, which post are you talking about?
