More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Qixel is stylised, easy to use pixel painting app for NOOK tablets.

What can you make with 651 pixels?

Qixel is all about creating minimalist images, retro characters and typography with a limited number of pixels and colour palette. Make art or just use it to chill out - it's the digital equivalent of popping bubblewrap!

Here are some suggestions below to get you started, but it's your software to play with. I look forward to seeing your artwork on the Facebook Qixel gallery! ( Facebook.com/qixelgallery )

Here's what you can do with Qixel:

- Draw pictures with 4 different pixel types: Squares, Circles, Diamonds and Triangles.

- The canvas background button flips between black or white. This has a very different effect on your qixels.

- Use the darken and lighten buttons to add shade and depth to your art.

- The triangle setting has an extra button: Rotation. Try rotating your triangles 90 degrees to make strange patterns and origami-style art.

- Use Qixel to make quirky typography.

- Write simple messages and greeting cards to send to friends.

- Make cool patterns and abstract backgrounds for websites.

- Create retro game graphics, and then export frames in stages to make animation.

- Experiment with color: great for artists and color therapy teachers.

- Quickly try out blocky ideas for your Minecraft designs.
