Disney nail art challenge day 3 - The fox and the hound

Disney nail art challenge day 3 is the fox and the hound, and I'm actually really excited about these. I'm not the biggest fan of the movie, I think I've only seen it once at most, and that even was SO LONG AGO. So I had to google ideas.. but all that was coming up that others had done were painting the characters on their nails. So I decided, why not go for it? I'm not that most artistic person, I can't draw/paint AT ALL. But I can connect different dots and other shapes to make them look like what it's suppose to be on my nails, haha. 

But these? Actually came out decent. Still not the best, I know, they kinda look like awkward cheesy versions of the characters, but it's better than I thought it would be, at least you can tell what it is! 
And okay, enough of my rambling.
For these I used la colors palm tree for the base color and the rest is acrylic paints. I made little grassy tips on the pinky, index, and thumb, and painted the fox and hound on the remaining fingers (I can't think of their names, anyone know?) I kinda like how the fox came out better, but the hound is pretty cute too. For the first time ever painting characters like this, i'm pretty proud of myself. And I can't wait to try it some more and get better at it!

What do you guys think of these nails? Do you like my freehand character paintings? (be honest if you think it sucks, I won't be offended) Let me know in the comments below and also check out everyone elses fox and the hound nails!
