I decided to do a full hero instead of tags and related designs. It was pretty hard!! The face is the only thing I’m super bummed about but it ended up a lot better than I thought it would be halfway through painting, lol.
I used three colors for the background Sinful Colors Snow Me White, and gradient Sugar Rush as well as Sally Hansen Blue Me Away. Mercy and the rest are acrylic paints.
I think this all boils down to needing better brushes but it looks cute and it’s instantly recognizable that it’s Mercy!! I rushed through the thumbnail but meh. I just need to practice letters.
hehehe. YAY! More Overwatch nail art! Pharah’s main skin for her character has a blue color so I chose Finger Paints Surfs UP. It actually has a really pretty deep purple shift which I’m pretty famous for never being able to photograph.
She also has this neat cobra tag that I tried my best to copy, all those LINES!! haha it drove me crazy.
I really love Pharah though, she’s a solid character in the game and I always feel really rewarded when I get those 60+ direct rocket hits!
Not sure which female hero I’ll do next, probably Mercy but we’ll see! If you have any ideas comment!!
I’ve been sewing for my niece’s second birthday and crafting away so these are well overdue! Here I am though, following through (Pharah will be around the corner here shortly)!
I used 3 colors for the background Salon Perfect Yowza Yellow, Kleancolor Neon Orange, and China Glaze Roguish Red and the rest is acrylic paint.
I used a different light setting for these other two images to show the depth of the gradient.
It’s been rainy for the past few days here so I couldn’t get any outside pictures which really show it off, so I think this was the closest I could get. I was a little crunched for time so I think what I’d do differently next time is probably put a little Cheers Luv on the thumb with maybe the grav bomb symbol.
All in all I think I did a good job given my time frame and my starting to fray to bits brushes. I really need some new ones!!
If you have any tips on my Pharah nails feel free to comment with your ideas!
I cant get over her weather modification drone Snowball and how freakin absolutely precious he his. I’m working on a digital painting of him which will probably take a million years but in the mean time I had to do some Snowball nails for Mei.
I used the Snow Plum Skin colors because that is my favorite Mei skin an pink Snowball is extra cute. :3 The polish colors I used are Sinful Color’s Sugar Rush with two coats of Sally Hansen’s Lets Get Digital. I’ve used lets get digital a few times in the past couple months but I cant help it, it’s sooooo pretty and it fit Mei perfectly.
Over all I’m really happy with how Snowball turned out. I think I should have made the background more contrasting probably so I’ll keep that in mind for Tracer. I will eventually end up doing all of the characters but I started with my favorites first. So far I’m LOVING the game and I’ve sunk way too many hours into it. lol
If you haven’t been paying attention to all those commercials, let me enlighten you. This game is freakin awesome! It’s a first person shooter with a similar style to TF2 but in my opinion a lot more balanced and quite a bit more fun. The characters are so distinct and they are just created so well. Blizzard has been doing a great job with this game so far.
My absolute favorite characters are D.Va, Mei and Tracer. I had to do D.Va first though because her sticker is so CUTE! UGH LOOK AT IT! It’s a freakin bunny. :3 I will admit it’s eyes are a little too close together but other than that I think it turned out great! I used Finger Paints Where Art My Love and Color Show’s Impeccable Grey (I freakin love this grey btw), the white is acrylic paint. I also use ILNP’s My Private Rainbow over the pink.
