I was in a slump last night, couldn't decide what to do after drawing my babies on my nails. I chose an old Colorama color called A penny for your thoughts. It was pretty, but I didn't have any ideas for nail art but I showed Alex the color like I always do and he said why don't you draw Lincoln on there? Ding ding ding!
First of all, this is the scratch paper I used to try some profile drawings. I am not an artist I have no idea how to draw these things so for this I had to try on paper first. Wow, after 7 attempts I gave up! They looked like poo. I went for it anyway since I had nothing to lose, and I forgot to take a picture of the profile outlines but they looked worse than my scratch paper ones. Then Alex said, well why dont you draw some details in? Lol #3.5 got Elvis hair...
After drawing in some hair, his beard, eye/eyebrow, bowtie and his collar, he looked good! I was so happy I didn't have to take this off lol. I left all my pictures full size (or close to it) so you can see the details I realized my cuticles are gross and dry after, sorry.
I decided to try to make it a realistic penny by writing "In God We Trust" across the top and the year on the right, and on the left of Lincoln it is supposed to say "Liberty" I actually tried to fit in there but the TY didn't fit =x. Click to enlarge!
Here is my super ghetto paint setup: I use old laserjet paper as my scratch paper, holds polish on it better. I think Alex's old homework is printed on the other side. I throw down a few strips of painters tape for my acrylic paint, and here is the brush I use to paint the super tiny detail work my trusty $.50 Wal-Mart brush.
