If you are using photoshop do this: Make a new layer and set it to burn. Then use a soft brush with red color and paint on the blood where you want it. It doesnt look too bad. If you want it to look smudged, use the smudge tool and experiment with that. This method got the job done on my unreleased ZOMBIE SKIN.

Firstly it depends on what the blood is on and how long its been on it. For example fresh blood on a material such as cotton is going to leave a dark red color present with some blotches ( remember that its not a solid red, so you should be able to see some of the texture of the material beneath showing through but altered in color) while a stain which has been there for a long period will have very little contrast and should have the same look as a colored liquid which has set (Imagine dried paint which has very little color left in it). However on something like metal it will be far more opaque as the metal isn't permeable (won't absorb the blood like clothing). I hope that description helps =p

That blood isn't very realistic-looking, although you did get an "eww!" out of my sister as she walked by.

Try googling tutorials. It's one of the best ways to learn, because the more you learn about the tools the more you can improvise yourself to improve your results.

Thats actually what I got that method from: Google.

Just because you got it from Google doesn't mean it's automatically good. I usually spend more time looking for decent tutorials than I do on the project I need them for. There are soooo many bad ones out there.

I know that once its from Google it doesnt mean it is good. It's just the most simple one out there and not too complex for me. I am not that good of a texturer so it worked for me. And I know you are going to say "Look for the harder ones to get better".

A tutorial doesn't need to be hard to produce a good end result. Alternatively a bad tutorial may very well be complex.

I found this tutorial after about five minutes : Creating a Blood Effect by ~Shad0w-GFX on deviantART Although it requires Photoshop I imagine you could apply the same technique to anything you want with some modifications ( Brush size, contrast, opacity etc).
