hexels.pngSometimes it's the art tools one has access to that determine the visual style of one's creation and, if you are looking for something utterly distinctive yet reminiscent of pixel-art, you can't go wrong with Hexels. Well, at least for the time and before everyone starts using the thing or getting inspired by it. Hexels, you see, is not unlike a powerful pixel-art creation program that allows you to actually change the shape of the grid you are painting on, while simultaneously providing you with some interesting extras like its glow feature.

Hexels comes in two editions: the relatively standard free one and the modestly priced Pro edition that adds all sorts of features and promises regular updates.
