Hexels 2.6 Beta Update 2 | Pixel brushes!

We’re back with a new build of pixel goodies! This time we’ve added some pixel brushes that allow for free-flowing, smooth brush strokes that include options for flow and opacity-based painting. Try the brushes by making a new pixel layer, painting with the square brush or the round brush and fine-tune the hardness slider for smooth and hard edges!

We’ve also squashed a host of bugs, cleaned up some windows and fixed some minor crashes. Please let us know if you run into problems or have suggestions.

Here are the links to the installers:

Mac: https://s3.amazonaws.com/mset/download/release/hexels_install_260b2.dmg

Windows: https://s3.amazonaws.com/mset/download/release/hexels_install_260b2.exe
