Vexel art has been mentioned on a variety of websites, be it talking about vector art and vexel art, or featuring the wonderful work created by vexel artists. However, do you actually know the answer to “What is vexel art?”
In today’s article I’m going to give an in depth look at what vexel art is, how to create it and why it isn’t vector art – which is the key point of the article. It will get technical in places so please bare with me as I go through the differences between raster and vector and then what vexel art is.
There are misconceptions on what vexel art is and it comes from it being a relatively new in its definition in comparison to other digital art forms. Due to the misconceptions being forwarded onto each person, it’s been moulded into the idea that vexel art is a detailed representation of a photograph in vector… and this is incorrect.
