Hexel fun

Slightly off topic, but Sacha had sent me this very exciting and interesting website that houses a free to download software called ‘Hexel’.

The software creates some amazing but very wild art work that centers around using hexagons as the brush and using the similar principle of pixel art.

There are options for various brushes and uses for the software but it looks as though it has a lot of potential with such a lovely rainbow of colours and images being produced within it. The main imagery and style that drew me in to the software though is its use of colour and form to create imagery which links back to such a vital point within my animation and could have been useful to create so concept work within or even go as far as to create the background within. But then this would have changed the entire animation completely and it would have been a real task to practice and develop our skills within a totally different and new area.
It seems like a lot of fun and could be very useful within future projects or simply to create illustration pieces, I’ll be giving a play when I can.
