Fine craftsmanship entryway, easily convertible to include skylight. Nice table-hood, quiet neighbors, excellent school district just a few minutes' crawl away. Six dirt lumps a month, utilities and lot rental included!

Ok. Yup. This is me pretending I can not only vexel, that I am also "creative." Stop laughing. I know you are. But the contest is judging primarily on creativity and use of media. So I was hoping I could do well with the creativity section, but then I found myself with a rather standard apple, on a checked tablecloth, and some blah kitchen wallpaper. So I stuck in a worm, equally blaise, so here's hoping the sign fixes that?

Done in PhotoShop, with the pen tool, and my mouse. Created with filled shapes (no opacity or gradient changes, I wasn't sure if those were vector or a vexel thing. So yes. That tablecloth nearly killed me, chunking out those areas and choosing the right areas for the shadow.)

Base lines were created by ^TheLastHuzzah for Project Educate's Vexel week. And are here:

Contest info:
PE: Mini ContestWhy hello thar! I think contests are so much fun, and as part of Vexel Art Project Educate Week, I am hosting a mini contest for you :D This contest is open to everyone, whether you’re a pro vexel artist or never touched a pen tool before in your life :XD: If you’re a beginner, or not sure about vexel art but want to participate, take a look at my recent article A Guide To Vexel Art, which includes everything you need to know about the media, including some useful links and tutorials. You can also find all the info you need on the front page of #TheVexelGroup. :star:  The Aim I have done a vexel lineart of an apple, as you can see right here: The aim of the contest is to colour that lineart using the media of vexel! You can use whatever colours you like, it doesn’t have to be realistic – i

I've read so many tutorials, for some reason I just can't wrap my brain around it. At least not well enough to function with it. It sure gives a nice result if you know what you're doing though.

I've seen some awesome stuff, but I'm such a slow poke with things that there was no way to learn how and accomplish that in the allotted time. It had to be put aside for later efforts.

:giggle: I'd forgotten about Wanda Worm. She had a bow though. Perhaps this is her husband and they're getting ready for little wormlings now.
