Hey guys, I’m back with yet another discussion question. A more specific question, but I think it’s simpler than the others. Do you use blood/gore in your battle scenes or MOCs in general?
I mention this because battle scenes with blood and battle scenes without have different feelings, not necessarily one better than the other but they certainly evoke a different sense. So, how do you guys feel? Do you use blood/gore? Do you like it when other builders use it?
I, as a general rule, don’t use it in large-scale battle scenes. However, in smaller MOCs, I have used some gruesome depictions to show a scene (My “You’ve been Chopped!” vignette makes use of a red flag piece for a blood squirt following decapitation).
Another question worth mentioning, is there a limit on the amount of blood/gore in a MOC before it becomes too ridiculous? Less is more, or do you prefer to go Tarantino style in your builds?
In the specifics of things, some builders use trans-red, while others use plain red, which do you use, if you use any at all? Do you feel one is better than the other?
Looking forward to what you guys have to say.
