It all started with an airbrush. A shiny new tool and a spectrum of paints lay before me. The Vegimals, were primed and ready to dive into a whirlpool of color. Little did I know that this expedition into model painting would become a tale of adventure, resilience, and unexpected lessons.
My airbrush and I began on common ground. There’s a unique camaraderie that forms when one is about to embark on a fresh journey. The various greens for the Vegimals’ uniforms were the first hues to grace their surface. We had a few hiccups due to my adventurous experimentation with thinner, but a few extra coats worked their magic. So far, so good.
The faces of our veggie-creature companions were next. Turnip’s yellow-white hue went on smooth as butter. It was during this phase that I had an epiphany – doing the heads first would’ve been far more efficient. But as they say, every journey has its detours, and every detour brings a new perspective.
Next in line was Codish’s radiant pink. A gorgeous color, but one that decided to rebel. It began a tug-of-war with the airbrush, leading to a blockade that refused to let the paint flow consistently. My airbrush seemed to be on strike, and I was left contemplating my next move.
So, I decided to switch gears and revert to the old-school charm of manual brushing. A humble paintbrush from my children’s art set, slightly frayed and quite evidently loved, became my new ally in this chromatic quest. A bit of grooming, and it was battle-ready.
The entire process was more than just a painting job. It was about adapting, overcoming hurdles, and learning. Every challenge was an opportunity to grow. And in the end, I emerged with a set of Vegimals that not only sported their new vibrant looks but also represented my evolution as a creator.
Stay tuned to witness the final reveal of these vibrant, hand-painted Vegimals. Their journey from digital models to tangible, painted figures has been one filled with color, chaos, and creativity!
