TipTut Shares a Look at the Animation Process for Pixel-Art Using Marmoset Hexels
TipTut’s Matthew Fryer covers how to create and animate pixel-art using Marmoset’s Hexels. There are various ways to develop pixel-art with a variety of tools. Photoshop, Illustrator and even After Effects are pretty efficient at the task. Marmoset Hexels, however, is built from the ground up specifically to create vector and pixel art for design and animation.
Hexels offers users grid-based painting and animation. It essentially gives you a “paint-able” grid using a variety of geometric shapes. There is no restriction to only using standard square pixels. Hexels harbors an advanced rasterization tool. That can get your artwork exported at any resolution. The application also renders everything on the GPU, giving you instant previews on the canvas as you paint.
Marmoset Hexels 3 is available for MacOS and Windows and is under $50.00. That gets you free point releases and free email support.
