You have now noticed the problem with digital blood effects.

To get a decent blood effect, what you have to do is film it using fake blood. It is relatively cheap and easy to get, or you can make it yourself fairly easily as well. For a blood effect to look real, to 'sell' the effect to the audience, it has to interact with the person (or animal) it is coming out of. Blood runs. There is not really any way of creating that effect digitally so that it will decently match your actor in the scene. So try practical blood, in most cases it is not that hard, and it will look much, much better.
