How to Draw Blood

Artist: Dawn / March 17, 2009

Step 1.

This is a very simple first step. All you have to do is draw four different shaped circles. The one in the left corner resembles a sun. The shape to the right of it looks like an oval with three lines in a vertical angle. Next draw out the last two w   

Step 2.

In this step you will start drawing the blood shapes. Start with the biggest. All you have to do is draw different shapes and sizes of the blood drips. Finish the tear shape in the middle and then add splatter lines on the top of the right blood stai   

Step 3.

Color in all your blood designs leaving hints of white in select locations as shown to you here. This will add the wet look to the finished colored blood spots while also adding depth and texture.

Step 4.

For your last step you are going to draw out and color in the remaining bits of drips and splatter lines as you see here. I would tell you to erase guidelines, but as you can see there is none because they are colored in.

Step 5.

Once you are done your work should come out looking like the marks you see here. All you have to do now is incorporate the newly drawn designs with some of your favorite drawing. I hope you liked learning how to draw blood step by step.

Description: I know you guys are gonna freak over this next lesson because I am freaking right now just because I am uploading it to the site. For this next lesson I will be showing you how to draw blood step by step. This is the coolest looking tutorial that I have done in a while and I am very pleased on how it came out. Of course as you can tell all the special effects for coloring the blood was done in Photoshop CS while using my Wacom Intuos 3 tablet. There are four different types of blood that I will show you how to draw. The first blood design is on dripping blood, like the kind you would see drooling down a wall, or other upright surfaces. The next one is on a blood splatter which is a common image seen on walls, grounds, and any other kind of surface. Blood splatter is made when blood is shot out from an object (body from an animal, creature, or human) at an accelerated speed like from a gunshot, tear, or bursting. The next design of blood that I will show you how to draw is the splatter drip. This is the same as a splat except there is blood dripping away from the splatter. A blood tear drop is another shape I show you how to do. And finally a blood puddle which is made from blood by a slow to moderate leakage. I know all these blood design descriptions are kind of brutal, but is there really any other way to describe the different shapes of blood? Drawing blood can also be done with computer illustrations and graphical designs. When you draw blood in a vector like manner, you are most likely using some graphic art skills that you either picked up through schooling or pure constant usage of working with computer graphics like me. I hope you all enjoy this awesome lesson on how to draw blood step by step. When you are done with this tutorial you will be using your newly learned skill on all your artwork that calls for a little blood. I shall return gang in a bit so stay tuned.
