Geek Challenge - Games & Gaming (Pokemon)

Okay, this is the last one, I swear! Haha, I had so many games I wanted to do for Gaming week that I didn't even have the chance to do half of them. But, I did manage to squeeze in one more for this week: Pokemon! This is one of the things that make me truly a geek - yes, I'm 24 years old and I still play Pokemon when the mood strikes me! Go ahead, laugh, I've reached the point where I've accepted my geekdom and I embrace it! So, here's what I came up with - fairly standard, I took inspiration from lots of manis on Google, but I thought it turned out all right.


My thumb is Bulbasaur (I didn't realize at the time I painted him upside down), index is a sloppy Jigglypuff, the middle finger is a Pokeball, ring finger is Pikachu, pinky is Squirtle! I tried doing this mani a while back but I just didn't have most of the right colors I needed. 


Here's a close-up of the thumb. I smudged the one side of his face so I tried to patch it up. I kinda like him! Well, that's all I have for now!
