Learning vexels takes quite a lot of time, especially if you have never worked with the pen tool. This is where tutorials come in handy.
If you browse DeviantArt you'll find some useful and good tuts, starting from the basics of vexeling, through making hair or eyes. The only thing you have to remember is that tutorials are here only to help you start and discover your own style and technique. You don't have to follow them step by step. Don't be afraid to experiment, you never know, you might create something extraordinary.
Here are few walkthroughs, step by step, explaining how to use the pen tool.
As said before it's really up to you which way you'll choose, there's no perfect method of making vexels.
And now grab your pen tools and enter the contest!

Vexels- what are they?
Gallery Descriptions and Miscats The definition To understand what Vexels really are you must get to know Vexel's bigger brother- Vector. Both can be created with a tool called Pen tool or Lasso Tool (or similar- depending of the graphic software) using layers of shapes filled with solid colour or gradient BUT Vectors are created using vector layers while Vexels use raster layers. Vexel = Vector + Pixel To simplify: Vectors are scalable (you can enhance or scale them down and all shapes will stay sharp and crisp) and Vexels are not (when you expand a Vexel you can see pixelation, as rasters are based on pixels). Vector expanded to 300% V
