Iron Branding Effect questions
I'm altering a drawing of mine to iron brand an 'X' on the left side of his face.

Normally when I'm adding scars I just place the mark and make sure said mark is a darker patch than the rest of the skin, simple. Iron banded burns however appear to be a little more complex based on what I've researched so far. For example, from what I can see Iron brands seem to vary in colors of red to black. What causes this color variation and does the color remain for years and years? The character I'm branding also has rather pale skin, so will that have an effect on the color of the brand? And how can I keep an branding from looking like an burned in brand wound and not the kind of regular cross scar inflicted from cuts?

The closest I can find to a tutorial for this is in photoshop and I'm not remotely sure how it look on skin opposed to wood let alone reproduce the effect in gimp.

Anyone have any suggestions on how I should proceed?
