"Say Hello to my best friend; Rex"

Hi again, I decided to try out making an image with muzzle flash. I know the image itself isn’t that original, and It’s seen before and all, but I’m kinda focusing on the gun effects on this one. The blood is in my opinion pretty poor looking, so tips on post-processed injuries/wounds are very appreciated.

you could have zoomed in.

lighting is cool, but the angle and posing suck

there’s also gray highlights all over the place

The muzzleflash is a bit off.
