In February, I was lucky enough to be contacted by Advanced Photoshop UK Magazine (www.advancedphotoshop.co.uk) in regards to making a tutorial about vexel art.
Now, not only what I terribly excited about this because it would be my first freelance job, but more importantly it will be (to my knowledge) the first ever occurrence of not only vexel art being published in a magazine, but a vexel art tutorial being published.
This is HUGE guys! Huge!
This would be the vexel I created for that specific tutorial. It's a six page spread, as well as featured on the cover, so I'm pretty excited!
To anyone in the UK - GO AND BUY THE MAGAZINE! If you're not in the UK, you can order it online, or if you're lucky enough to have it sold in your country, definitely wait for it to appear on your shelves.
OMFG THE VEXEL COMMUNITY IS GOING PLACES. I'm so unbelievably happy.
Yes, the file size is huge. The full-body is HALF the size of what it was when I was making it - the snippets are previews of the full size. It was created in PhotoshopCS3 over a period of about a week, and my computer really disliked me by the time I was done. It's several hundred layers, and considering the size of each layer, I guess you can understand why my iMac wanted to explode by the time I was done.
I apologise for the watermark. I'm lucky to be able to share this with you to start with, I really don't want people going around and stealing my work, especially because it's not just done for the fun of it.
Forgive the massive delay on this reply, I don't log in to dA much anymore. My tutorials were in some 2009 and 2010 Digital Artist and Advanced Photoshop magazines. I'm not sure they would be easily available anymore.
