I thought it would be useful to do a series of video tutorials using really basic kit to produce great makeup effects. To that end, I have planned them and this is the first: simple & effective scratches.
As with most makeup effects, the best thing to start with is reference. You notice that the scratched skin is snagged and dark red, but the skin around it responds to that damage and reddens shortly after the injury takes place.
My approach with casualty effects starts by looking at images of the real thing and examining the picture to simply reverse engineer what I am looking at.
Anyhow, let me know what you think below. I love to get comments and will get stuck into the next videos asap!
