easy vexel by mathmagic easy vexel by mathmagic
I discovered a way to vexel faster. I wanted to vexel but normally it takes 4 hours to vexel a photo with the pen tool. I've never finished on so I experimented and discovered an easy way to vexel a photo. It took me 1 hour instead of 4. I don't know if this has already been discovered, probably it is but I don't care. It's my first tutorial and I'm proud of it.

EDIT: I adjusted the title because this ain't no vector. I should have done this before but I'm just too lazy. Every word in this text is changed to vexel and I don't even know if I can use that as a verb :D

Then I suggest the cutout filter in photoshop and use the pen tool on everything to make it smoother, you can also not use the pen tool but then the borders are rugged and it's no work then, so no feeling of success :D

it has the pen tool but this is "The easy and short way" If I'd do this with my pen tool it would take twice the time or even longer.

Its good, but it isn't a vector.

"Vector art consists of creating paths and points in a program such as Illustrator, Freehand, Corel Draw, [Inkscape] and Flash. These programs keep track of the relationships between these points and paths. Every time the image is scaled, the paths are regenerated: this creates images that are infinitely scalable without degradation.

Art that contains both vector and raster art shoud not be submitted to the vector gallery as it is not entirely a vector. Art of this nature should be submitted to the Digital Art > Vexel gallery.

Raster art comes into play when using any brushes, filters, blending options (drop shadows, filters, glows, etc). Basically, any major post work you do in Photoshop other than creating paths using the pen tool and unsimplified shapes makes your vector a raster. Adding frames, watermarks, making color corrections and any other small postwork in Photoshop does not make your vector a raster. However, adding photographic elements to the image also makes it a raster image regardless of whether it was made in a vector program. The images made in raster programs and those that contain photographic elements are called vexels. "

Ok then it isn't a vector but I'm not a professional so I can make mistakes.

(BTW: it looks like vector, is that right or am I wrong about that too)

Thanks for the correction, now I know something more.
