My Vexel Tutorial by fabulosity My Vexel Tutorial by fabulosity
This was by request from Nikkie!!!

Stuff I Do While Vexeling!

Sections: I usually start vexeling my skin in sections until the color starts to run together. For example if my last layer of color is running into the cheek, I'll stop doing the chin and start doing the cheek. I'll vexel the cheek until it catches up with the last layer I did with the chin. Then I'll make a new group underneath both and start vexeling them together. I basically combine them. I hope that makes sense lol It all depends on what I'm vexeling, I do it differently each time.

Also while your vexeling the skin zoom out a little to see what your skin is looking like so you can fix whatever you don't like.

Picture Size: I normally go for super duper HQ pictures. It's just easier for me because I can see better. And plus I zoom in quite a bit so I can see and try to make my shapes smooth.

Time: I generally take my time when I do vexels. That's why I don't have that many lol I wish I could vexel fast but I really just can't. If I do, I feel like it looks sloppy. I just try to take my time and do the best that I can do right now. I'm slowly improving.

Hair: I'm going to do a tutorial on hair really soon! Right now I do hair using the stroke path method. Before I would do it using shapes and then I used a combination of shapes and the stroke path method. Hair can be fun, if it doesn't take forever. The vexel I'm doing now is taking me forever because of the hair.

Music: I MUST HAVE MUSIC or else I would die lol I can't sit at the computer for five hours without music. It's just too hard. And also I take breaks like every hour lol

It probably would be easier to start out with a picture that isn't dark and doesn't have any drastic shadows. Even a black and white image would be easier to start out with.

yeah i know...but its how i learn everything...i know a bit of the basic and tend to switch everything onto medium-expert level asap..


thats how i learned how to drive stick...instead of a parking lot (which didnt help) friend put me in a parking garage with multiple level the i had to race to perfect my foot or else crash as the car rolls back LMAO

I'll get there eventually.

Your tutorial like i said has more pictures of the zoom and to see what is expected so its helps =)
