Gangrene by SometimesAliceFX Gangrene by SometimesAliceFX
Dry Acral Gangrene to be exact.

Although I like how this looks, because it is pretty disgusting, it doesn't look a whole lot like the reference. So I'm planning on re-doing this at some point.

Wanna see more, add me [link]

I saw someone come into my job today with his finger like that.
I couldn't stop staring at it.
Looked really freaky!

I think the yellow puss? Hardenened skin? Should be emphasized a little more on the toenails, and the last pinky toe should look smoother (as though covered by a hard layer of skin) and yellowish (unhealthy looking).
Other than that this is great! In it's own, anatomically accurate and creepily disgusting way of course ^^;

For a second there, I thought that was a bit of Greed from FMA. (Does gangrene REALLY look like that?? I'd thought it'd be more... moist.)

This is Dry Acral Gangrene. It is the result of diabetes. So this type wouldn't be moist (:

I think I've seen diabetic gangrene before (several hours of watching such related topics inadvertently on Supersize vs. Superskinny via YouTube)... aren't they suppose to look a bit more purple-ish than gray-ish? :? Dare I ask what a REAL visually documented DAG looks like :paranoid:

It's supposed to be more green and pink/purple
This is the reference I used, but like I said in the description, it doesn't look a whole lot like it. [link]

Ho-kay, I can't remember ever seeing THAT mess :O And I'm afraid that might happen to my dad (hasn't happened yet as far as I know, but I don't have a lot of faith in that idiot for taking care of his health).

The ones I remember seeing is generally the swelling of the feet, looking purple, and maybe a missing toe or two...

Yeah, this is just one person's experience with it, I've seen other kinds of tissue necrosis too and some of those are just horrible :/

It's really horrible when you know someone who is going through it, one of my cousins had two of his toes removed because of his diabetes.It's scary stuff. But at the same time it makes you realise how amazing the human body is and how we must take care of it.

There's only one solution left for this, and that would be a pretty little word called "amputation"!

Ha, but no seriously. This is really freaking gross--you're very talented. :D

Yeah at this point you'd be dead. Mortification of a wound that big would be enough to not only infect other cells and travel up the leg, by now you'd be poisoned to a lethal degree from the bacteria in the rotting flesh. Why do I come here to comment about it? My grandfather died of this very same "Special effect" you put here. (Its actually very convincing, I was scared to click the image for several minutes because i was afraid it wasnt a special effect)

I still wish he'd just let them cut his foot off though. ;_; I miss him. *hugs the Turtle*
