Awakening by Fainaru Awakening by Fainaru
Getting the inspiration to do this was fairly easy (~Maarika); having the motivation to complete the whole thing, not so much. I was procrastinating too much; especially for the hair, but hey that turned out to be the best part of this (IMO). I called this Awakening because Yuna has 'awakened' into a summoner. Much love goes to vexels.net.

Aw :3

Looking back at it, I cringe at some parts of the face I vexelled. But thank you soooo much for your comment Dee <3

I bet you could so totally pwn with vexels. I just looked at a few tutorials. If you ever want to take that up, I'd send you them and we can have vexel powah.~

Aww, I'm just telling the truth! It's really gorgeous! I love the detail and just everything about it.
Nah, I tried vexeling before, I hate the eyes the most, lmao. I tried and tried, but it just never came out right. I'm gonna try them again someday (maybe).

Which tutorials did you look at? I found one here on Deviantart, but they way they did eyes threw me off. O_o Take care hun! :hug:

Aw, I personally think the eyes are the easiest part, I can't stand vexelling noses or lips ><

And I'm supah glad you're back Dee <333 *hearts* I missed you too!~

That's super odd. I persoanly think that the nose and lips are the easiest just because they're a little larger the eyes, lol! I find that funny. XD! I can't wait until you update your portfolio again hun! :hug:

Haha, that's weird! ~ I can always work my way around the eyes to look nice, but never the nose or lips. Hell I HATE doing lips. So freaken hard =( I'll gladly try to assist you with them in anyway possible if you want!~

Aw, and thanks so much! I'm probably not gonna update for a while because I've got tons of projects stacked before the end of the school year.

O.O What is vexelling? Vector-pixelling??

Je suis confusee... @.@

Fainaru Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2007
Well I'm probably the worst person to ask the real definition, but it's basically style of digital art that uses block shapes of color to create an image and are often seen as cartoon versions of an image or photo. Unlike vectors which don't lose quality if you resize them, vexels are rasterized and lose that quality if resized :D If you're interested, I have a site which might clear things up more.

But for the purpose of a deviation, I uploaded this vexel under 'vector art'
