Texture Freebie: This is the second texture pack I’ve released in the past four days, and may very well be the highest quality pack ever released here. Each texture was individually created by bringing together different source images in interesting and creative ways. Enjoy!
I hope everyone had a really awesome Christmas. I had a great day, with the exception of the fact that my little girl wasn’t feeling just the best. My wife bought be a book full of website inspiration, which was pretty darned cool, and when we checked the mail today, my copy of 8 Faces had arrived, which was just awesome. I now have some awesome design-related reading material to peruse.
On the blog front, I’ve released snow textures, my WhatsThis jQuery plugin and a pack of candy cane seamless vector patterns over the past few days! I hope you’ve taken the opportunity to download the resources. I am also continuing the string of freebies again today with yet another set of textures.
If you liked the snow textures, I think you are going to like these too. In fact, I think this is probably the best set of textures that I have ever released, with the possible exception of the watercolour set from about a year ago. For this set, I specifically stained and distressed different types of paper and took some grungy photographs. I then took these and processed them with blending modes and filters in Photoshop to create some really cool looking textures!
Here are two of my favorites:
There are another three awesome textures in the pack too, and all of them are saved as high resolution JPEGs with no compression, to help maximize overall quality. So go ahead and download the back by clicking on the preview below. I’ll bet you can find some awesome uses for these textures!
If you do decide to download and use these textures in some way, I’d love it if you shot me an email or quick tweet to let me know or to show me a sample of your work. I love seeing my freebies in action!
Regardless, I hope you enjoy the pack. It was a whole lot of fun creating and experimenting with these as I put them together, and I’ll probably be making some more in the future. Do let me know if there’s anything specific that you think I should try and tackle or offer up. It would be fun to work on something like that!
Anyhow, I have plans for a couple more freebies for you before the end of the year, so do keep an eye out! And feel free to leave your thoughts or comments below!Post A Comment
