Cent Scar Help

I'm looking to cosplay Cent from Drakengard 3 sometime soon, but the one thing I'm having trouble with in regards to him is his scar, which is a pretty big one on his torso/stomach. I'm pretty inexperienced with makeup in general, so if anyone could really give me some advice or refer me to some products that I could use, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Also, here is a picture of Cent for referencing.

I'm not that good with makeup either, but I know liquid latex is a great thing to help achieve that scar look. (Maybe look around this for the best latex: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=188105)
(There's also scarring liquid that creates a cool effect that I can't really describe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFyot9NL_h0)

Also, search up some of those super gross YouTube makeup tutorials that show how to make it look like a scar. Maybe stuff like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytMrL6_GyV8

Hope I helped and good luck!

One of the most popular products for creating scars is Rigid Collodion, but you have to be careful with it since too many layers can damage your skin.
I'd recommend that if you want to try it, start with a thin first layer & build up as you feel comfortable. Then paint on whatever colors to add dimension & apply translucent powder to remove shine if you think it looks too glossy.

Rigid collodion is used for indented scars while scar wax or liquid latex can be used for raised scars (or deeper wounds/scars).
Yours looks indented with stitches? Us around 10 layers of the RC (can use more in some areas) to create it. Rather than type everything here, watch this great tutorial. Best of all, he gives 'warnings' and tips, so be sure to watch the whole thing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IatpF_jEJKs. For the stitches (or a deeper wound with the latex), watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gcod9KGqDg
Good luck and post a picture!
