Creating a Blood Effect by JamesRushforth Creating a Blood Effect by JamesRushforth
To view this tutorial it needs to be downloaded.

This tutorial is designed to compliment my Blood Brush Pack and takes you through creating a blood effect step by step. The tutorial will work equally well with other blood brushes and custom shapes if the correct texture is applied.

The tutorial is designed primarily for those relatively new to PS though more advanced users may find it helpful.

Again crediting is not required (though its always nice to see how the tutorial came in useful and any links to work done using it will at the very least earn you a comment). I only ask that if you find the tutorial useful please add a :+fav: (favourite), it makes all the hard work worthwhile and helps others to benefit from the resource.

Enjoy :D

Since your brushes only work on a white surface they are pretty useless in the end.

It will work on all surfaces, this is only a basic tutorial but I assure you it's possible.

wonderful! I would also recommend adding a 10% shadow burn after the final red adjustment. it really gives the glutinous red effect.

Okay, so I managed to get the blood effect, but I turned the entire picture dark and pink!! *laughs*
I did work on a new layer, so I could use the eraser to remove most of it, but still, the areas around the blood is a bit pink-ish... I'm not sure how to just work on the layer with the blood...

thank you so much, this helped so much. However, I can't seem to apply these settings to just one brush, how do i do that? I mean I can't just apply it to just one brush without it happening to the whole page.

How would I go about getting the same effect, but with a png, so as to have a transparent background?

Doesn't work so well on some backgrounds. I was using a black background and it didn't show up, so I had to compensate with a different method (though it was still pretty similar).

Thanks anyway, gave me a good idea of what to do when improvising my own method.
