I don’t know how time keeps slipping by so fast, but it’s already been about a month since my last post! So much for keeping up with my posts, huh? But I am yet again trying to get back into the swing of things by going back to my nerdy nail art roots. This time, I’ve got Dragon Ball Z nails!
Yes, I watched anime as a kid/teen. And yes, I still do fairly often. Dragon Ball Z was my introduction into anime, and I fell in love with it the moment I first stumbled upon the Namek saga on Toonami as a kid. And even now as an adult, Gohan holds the position of my favorite character (followed by Piccolo in a VERY close second).
So when my sleep-deprived mind decided to do DBZ nails at 3am, Gohan was my first thought. Only…I was sleep deprived. So I didn’t put as much effort into things as I probably should have.
I honestly don’t know what I was thinking trying this. I’ve never been able to draw anime characters, so I don’t know why I thought painting a tiny Gohan on my fingernail was a good idea. Although I do have to say, he might have actually looked like Super Saiyan 2 Gohan if I had given him a bigger forehead. I also sort of lost patience painting the stars on the dragon balls too, but you get the picture. 😛
For all my complaints though, I do like how this turned out. It’s been a while since I freehanded something detailed, and I hope I do it again soon. Maybe I need a good challenge to motivate me…
