This is really good. With all do respect, I showed this to my father and he said it wasn't very realistic. He said that if you were being stitched up that the stitches would be really close together and less sloppy. I said that it was meant to be like you just got cut and you stitched it up yourself. I don't know if that is what the story was intended to be. I was wondering what the story behind this makeup is or if you even came up with one.
Damn I thought this was real and was thinking what kind of med school failure made such bad stitches O_O
As a prosthetic this is a work of art, I'm amazed on how real it looks, but if you are looking to be realistic, you should know that doing stitches is a lot like mending clothing. The closer the stitches the better, but if all you wanted to do is a dramatic wound, then you got it 100% right.
Yeah, I plan on doing another one sometime with much tighter stitches. They're just SUCH a pain to glue down, but I know it would look good in the end. Thanks for the critique! I hope to redo this one soon.
as a medical person: This looks EXACTLY like a wound that has been closed, became infected and then swelled. So, much grosser than just a plain old stitched cut Add some yellow/grey puss and or maggots and you would be all set As usual: nice work!
I would imagine, with the amount of details this has, I don't doubt for a second it would be difficult. I'm actually pretty amazed on how realistic the entry wound for the stitches looks.Keep on at it, I looked forward on seeing more of your work.
