Vexels. What are they?

The word vexel is a mix of words vector and pixel. Vexels are made of solid shapes filled with solid colours or gradients that look like vectors but unlike vectors, vexels are made on raster layers. That means that while expanding vexels lose their quality and vectors don't.

The most popular Vexel programs are Photoshop, Gimp and Painter.

Tools you can use to create a vexel are the pen tool and marquee tool.

Find vexels in Digital Art > Vexel gallery.

More information about vexels can be found HERE.

:giggle: What a great overview. Just the other day I was thinking every gallery should have its own overview page with this kinda info.
