It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does paper! Can you believe the week is almost over already? I really feel as though this week as flown by. I have a more detailed freehand look today, inspired by paper planes! This is my recreation of a recent nail art posted by Narmai of Piggieluv, with my own spin of course. Narmai has the most amazing nail art ideas, but it is always a little intimidating trying to recreate them because she is so talented! Even though I think her original look was better, I’m pretty happy with my version.
I started off with a base of LA Girl Brilliant Blue and then painted the whole scene with acrylic paints. Now that I see the pictures, the background could have done with a little more dimension, and I’m not totally happy with the little girl; but overall, I think it’s a win! Of course, the ‘paper’ part of this look is the paper planes! The girl is having fun playing with her plane and I decided to add a second one on my thumb, since I couldn’t figure out a better way to have it fit in with the scene.
I really like the base of Brilliant Blue, too. It mostly got covered up but I’m glad it is at least visible on my thumbnail!
I never know whether or not to show macros of my freehand work, what looks pretty good nail-sized always looks all blobby when it’s blown up like this! I do think it’s fun to see, though, so I hope you appreciate it 😛
