Geek Series – Limbo


20121019-211323.jpg

Back to the geek series.

This was suggested to by on my fan page https://www.facebook.com/meandjdnailart If you haven’t already, head on over and have a look.

So i thought i’d have a go.

For those who don’t know Limbo, It’s a game on xbla and it’s all in silhouette. It’s a side scrolling game, You control the boy who’s looking for his sister in a forrest.

Anyway, lets get going on this.

Colours i used:

‘White on white’ by Revlon, ‘Blackout’ by Rimmel, ‘School Skirt’ by Accessorize, ‘Sidewalkers’ by NYC and ‘Blue Asphalt’ by Borjour.

More photos and larger photos under the cut.

So the background for this is actually something i’ve not done before, you can see it in the larger photos under this text than you can on the top photo. But after painting the base coat, while it was wet, i took a darer shade of grey and roughly brushing it around in the base coat, Not hard enough to disrupt the base coat. Once done the texture on the nail is lumpy, so i took my top coat and it smoothed it all over and blended the colours nicely into each other.

Once the background is dry, i started with the black and putting ion the structures. I used a really fine brush and using screen shots of the game plotted in each nail. Taking the white i added to where the light was shining in the game too. Finally i drew the tiny tiny main character in. In some cases he’s jumping.

I hope you have fun recreating this look!
