Texture Freebie: Another free Texture Pack for you to use in your designs. In the spirit of the current wintery season here in Canada, I’ve put together a pack of 7 snowy textures! Let it snow! At least in your designs. Enjoy.
In the Spirit of the holidays and Christmas season—one of my very favorite times of the year, I’m going to be giving away a few different design freebies over the next few days. I have some textures, icons, patterns and even a bit of jQuery goodness that I’ve whipped up (some cool stuff). All told, it should make for a pretty wicked collection of resources.
To kick it all of, I journeyed out into the blustry cold of winter in Ontario and put together Texture Pack 5, containing 7 high quality photographic textures of the snow around my house. It may not seem like much, but in the past I’ve had a few occassions where I needed a snow texture – usually in the summer or fall when the stuff isn’t readily available in mounds and drifts everywhere you turn!
Well, now you don’t need to go hunting. They’re right here, so let it snow in your designs!
In terms of the textures themselves, I tried to include a bit of variety. There are a couple top view shots of plain, flat snow, along with a number of angled shots where you can see more mounds and undulations, and even a few little imperfections. All in all, I think that the variations make for a pretty useful and versatile pack.
Or, at least as versatile as snow textures can be!
Anyhow, 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.
Also, don’t forget to stay tuned for more free stuff over the next few days. It’s going to be good.
