I guess this is Vectory's first project ever. So, yeah, Vexel Revolution!

http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/9573/headeriy7.jpg

Vexel is a term for vector arts that are mostly made with vector shapes rather than raster techniques(such as brushes, blurs etc).The word derives from a combination of "vector" and "pixel" to distinguish them from normal vector graphics and normal raster images.

Despite the name of the project, it does not intend to start such dramatic change on vector arts, but generally to change the perceptions on vexels and to put it at a higher level than before. Actually, it's main objective is to create and manage a side gallery for Vectory (and MT) that solely consists of vexel arts. And also to provide info and tutorials on vexels and vector arts.

Read the guidelines here and if you have questions, feel free to ask in this thread or by contacting me.

This project is open to non-members as well, and if your entries are not accepted at MT or you want to upload them somewhere else, be sure to provide the links through the group's guestbook or by contacting me.
I'm not sure to put deadline or not, but for the time being, no deadline. -> o_0

Join now and have fun!

Offsite page (will put more stuffs soon).

Btw, if you happened to have older vexels in your gallery, you are welcome to submit them in the project.

OMG!
YAY!
i love vexelling!
i mean i only did a vexell once in my life [it was a birthday gift so i didnt submit it here] and i used garra-san's tutorial [HUUUUUGE THANKS]
ill definitely make a vexell for the project [or maybe even a few if it's allowed :x]
i just have 2 questions:
a. is that like a contest or just for enlarging mt's vexell gallery
b. if it IS a contest, why not make a deadline XD

i plan to do a vexell for a long long time but i dont have enough time for it cuz im so into vectorin anime >.< lol

That's awesome. I've always wanted to try vexelling, but had no motivation to do so. xD

It's a project, not a contest (so don't expect any award or something). And it actually not to enlarge MT's vexel gallery(doesn't exist yet), but having a side gallery(outside MT) specially for vexels. No deadline because I thought people do not get used to vexel yet, so I give them quite a long time to submit their works.

Doesn't have to be photo-to-vexel. You can even try to vexel anime scans, if you can creatively manipulate them.

oh ok :o XD

first of all, use the [IMG]url of image[/IMG] to make your banner show up as an image and make it all prettiful.

second of all, er, that definition is rather... complicated (what does "neologism and portmanteau" mean? O__o ), and people might get confused.... My definition of vexel is shading using vector shapes instead of brushes, usually very detailed shading (ie multiple layers). Gradients and textures are fair game.

Maybe have a few examples of what is a vexel and what isn't?

And there are anime vexels too, actually there's a couple wallpapers here on MT that could be considered vexels (by my definition anyway), such as I'll Show You the Sky by farizthree and Dragon's Sunset by shigemitsubaki

lastly, yay website, pretty neat-looking ^__^

^ LOL! The site looks great, it's very neat =D

Argh, I dunno if I have the patience for this type of thing, so I guess it's good that there isn't a deadline (yet).
But I'll definitely try it out!

i've never done a vexel before, but i think i might want to try it. it looks really hard though. i'm really busy now and don't know when i can make one, at least there is no deadline yet. even if i make one, it's gonna take me ages to do it(probably if i don't focus).

Yeah, I'm thinking of putting that as well. Still under construction on the web.

Thanx, Abul. Though I think Western celebrity isn't a good choice if you want to submit at MT.

Pretty interesting :) I'd like to participate to this project. ^^
I'm glad there's no deadline so I have enough time to make a vexel too (or maybe more if I have more free time XD )

I've listed two tutorials in the website(under "About Vexel" section). Also this community has also listed tutorials and tips you can check.
