Step 1: Start With Blue

First, I added layers of different shades of blue on the hand, leaving a blank, empty circle in the middle to paint in the Pokeball.

Step 2: Add Highlights and Details

Next, I drew on some highlights, stars, and other details with a mix of white and light blue.

Step 3: Start Off the Pokeball

Now, I drew in the PokeBall in the blank space with red on top and white on the bottom.

Step 4: Finish Off

Finally, I finished off the Pokeball with black and white, as well as add some highlights with grey and orange.

Step 5: Ready, Set, Pokemon GO!

Now, you're ready to show your love for the new app with this awesome hand art! I'm not really much of a gaming geek myself, but I do love pop culture. So, this is a great way to replicate a fun and new-coming app into a hand art that kids and adults will really love!

    With face and body paint, it usually comes off with warm soap and water. However, it takes about no more than 3 minutes to remove. You can also use makeup remover wet cloths or some type of baby oil if all else fails. This is because some of the pigments in most colors may appear as stained for a while,b it it doesn't last too long. Try it out, and see what will work best for you! Best of luck!
