Freebie: Texture Pack 4 – Watercolours

posted by Matt Ward on Jan 5, 2010.

Texture Freebie: Another free Texture Pack. This one contains five high resolution watercolour textures that you can use to add some bold splashes of colour to your designs.

Hey guys. To help kick off the year, I am releasing my fourth freebie texture pack! This one contains five unique watercolour textures that I created myself. Now, I want to be up front with all my readers. These textures were originally created as part of a project that I am working on for a new site called MediaLoot (see below for more details on the site).

I was hired to create a set of 10 watercolour textures (along with some other resources). So I decided to create 15 – 10 to complete the project and 5 to give away as a freebie here on the Echo Enduring Blog. The guys at MediaLoot selected 10 of the textures. The remaining 5 are now available to you all as a free download.

Now, I want to stress that these textures are not rejects. They simply were not selected for one reason or another. I still put a lot of work into these, and they are scanned at a very high resolution. I actually like a couple of these better than some of the ones that were chosen! I’m sure they will prove valuable too you.

In previous posts for non-exclusive freebies released before today, I usually sent you to a specific section of my site. However, in anticipation of a redesign and reorganization coming down the pipe, I will now be releasing all of my freebies directly on the blog itself. I will also be updating the previous freebies to reflect this change.

So, to download Texture Pack 4, just click on the preview above.

I hope you find some awesome uses for these textures. I’m pretty happy with the way they turned out. If you use them, please do let me know. I always love to see my work in action.

About MediaLoot

Okay, now more about this MediaLoot site. Basically, it is an awesome new resource base created by Jon Phillips and Mason Hipp. You can read their own descriptions of it over at SpyreStudios and Freelance Folder. Basically, though, MediaLoot is envisioned as being the ultimate designer’s toolbox.



The site will be subscription based, and will allow users access to an entire collection of different design resources, all for one modest monthly fee. There will be textures, brushes, vectors and icons, just to name a few of the types of resources. If you haven’t checked it out yet, head on over. And while you’re there, don’t forget to sign up for the email updates. Thanks guys!

I’m looking forward to releasing more awesome freebies throughout 2010. Have an idea or something you’d like to see me tackle? This is your chance to speak up. Drop a comment and let me know what kind of freebies will rock your world this year. You never know, I just might take your suggestion.

Very cool, Matt. Did you hand paint these yourself? I’ve definitely noticed a lot more color and hand drawn design around the web these days so this pack should be quite useful and relevant. Great work!

Matt Ward says:

Thanks Chris. Yes I made these myself, using a variety of different watercolour techniques, from brushes to sponges, from dry painting to adding paint to pre watered areas – all the tricks I learned back in school. Glad you like them. They were really fun to make.

I think the texture will work very well not only in 3D Modelling, but also in presentation and website design.

The color is very great.. Simply beautifull and nostalgic..
Again, thanks for sharing this great texture.
