Eye of Ender is now Hexelriffic

eye-of-ender

This is a item in Minecraft you create to open a portal that takes you to the final boss. What? You thought Minecraft was just some digital version of legos that has no goals or objectives? Don’t die of shock. Minecraft’s survival mode is a full on game complete with a (very wordy and strange) ending. I made this in Hexel. I just discovered that Hexel is great for making ‘polygonal’ looking art.

Everest (Env 19)

I’ve been experimenting with a unique grid paint program called Hexels 2.5 in which you paint with blocks, octagons, and other shapes. It is great for pixel and isometric art. It’s also great for blocking in because it forces you to paint on a grid and this is effective in preventing you from adding details. After I got it blocked in, I imported the painting into Photoshop and painted the details in.
