Hello, I'm Traci Parrish. I'm a Graphic Designer, and today I'm going to show you how to draw blood using Photoshop. So, our picture has a little context. I'm going to place a clip art of a knife into our document. Selecting the brush tool and select here a round brush that's slightly feathered and the color red. By making a layer above the knife if we need to go back and make changes later, we can simply delete the layer. By using the brush, you can color in and using the rounded edge, make drops. I can adjust the size for different size drops. So that looks a little more convincing. If I go to layer, select layer style, bevel and emboss and menu opens where we can give it a little bit of depth and some highlights and low lights to make it look like liquid in a little three-dimensional. We're going to soften the highlights and make it a little bit bigger. Now, as you can see, it made it kind of pop out a little bit. So, it looks like it's three-dimensional liquid coming off of the knife. If you want to change it, you can simply erase portions. Select your brush and as you can see, if you go back in and draw, the beveled appearance is automatically added to anything new. And that's how you draw blood using Photoshop.
