Title: Building a Library of Images for Everyone
Post by: Eric Matyas on February 08, 2017, 09:55:11 am
Hi everyone,

I've been building a library of images that you are welcome to use in your projects. They are all original...all my own work. I think a lot of them could be made into cool textures for games.  All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage:

http://soundimage.org/

The images are on my "TXR" pages. 

I'm adding new ones all the time, so be sure to check back often. I sincerely hope that some of them are useful. Any and all constructive feedback is welcome and always appreciated.  :-)

All the best,

Eric

This week's new free images are on my TXR - WOOD page. At the top, I've added a bunch of smooth wood images that might come in handy for interiors. Some have dents and other signs of wear.

If you scroll down (way down) to Seamless Textures, you'll find about 20 "fantasy wood" images...(I'm experimenting with creating different looks.) 

Anyhow, they all live here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

I hope some of them are helpful!

Hi everyone,

I've added about 100 new texture images. You'll find them on the following pages:

TXR - BRICK - (some new seamless "fantasy" bricks)

TXR - GROUND - (stones that could be used for riverbeds, railroad beds, etc.)

TXR - METAL - (both standard and seamless)

TXR - ROCK/STONE - (lots of cool rock textures, both standard and seamless...realistic as well as fantasy creations)

TXR - VEGETATION - (some cool ground cover that has a surreal look)

Enjoy!

Hi everyone,

I just began a new page of cool Sci-Fi texture images. Give it a look:

http://soundimage.org/txr-sci-fi/

I'll be adding many more images, including skins for creatures, aliens, etc.

Any requests? 

Btw, I've also had folks ask about how to credit me for my images. Please simply list me and my website under "Textures" in your credits section...there's no need to identify which images are mine...unless you really want to.  :-)

Anyhow, I think this is going to evolve into a really cool page. Hope it's helpful!

Hi everyone,

A bunch of cool new stone images are ready. You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/

I hope some of them are helpful!

Hi everyone,

This week's new images are all seamless so they can be tiled.

The first group might be useful in sci-fi games.  Feel free to scale them, mix with procedural textures or other images as needed.
http://soundimage.org/txr-sci-fi/

The second bunch are stone textures and could be useful for walls or other structures.
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/

Please note: On all of my texture pages, the seamless images are grouped below the standard ones so make sure to scroll down...(WAY down on the rock/stone page.)

Anyhow, I hope some of them are helpful. Have a great week!

I've just uploaded about 70 new seamless metal textures. All are 2048X2048. Some have a "camo" look and might work well for military-themed objects. Others have intriguing patterns that might look cool in fantasy-based things. And some are just plain weird looking, but what the heck...give them a look. Hopefully some of them will be helpful.

http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/

(Scroll down...they live toward the bottom of the page.)

More are on the way.  :-)

Hi everyone,

I've uploaded about 20 additional seamless metal texture images to finish out the set from last week. Each is 2048X2048. For anyone who's interested, they all came from a retired DC-7 aircraft. I Hope some of them will be helpful.

http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/

(Scroll down...they live about half way down the page.)

Have a good weekend!

Greetings Fellow Creatives,

My mad experiments creating seamless textures continue! This week we have some from my Wood and Vegetation pages. 100% free to use with attribution, like my thousands of other images.

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

I've had some people ask me why I don't provide maps (like normal maps, roughness, ambient occlusion, etc.) with my texture images. The answer is:  I think it's better to let people generate their own maps from my images so they can make them (and, hence, their final materials) look exactly the way they want them to.

I've recently discovered a free tool called "Materialize" that does exactly that, and it works really well. Here's a link:

That said, this week's brand new images are on these pages on my site:

BARK - Artistic - Tile-able

BRICK - Artistic - Tile-able

CONCRETE - Artistic - Tile-able

You can access them from here:

https://soundimage.org/images-home-page/

Enjoy!  :-)

Happy Friday!

If you happen to find my free assets helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts. My site is 100% ad-free...I pay for everything myself and contributions from the creative community really help a lot.

That said, you'll find this week's new free textures on these pages:

FUR/CARPET - Artistic - Tile-able

GROUND TEXTURES - Artistic - Tile-able

https://soundimage.org/images-home-page/

Enjoy, stay safe and keep being creative!  :-)

Hey Everyone,

Brand new seamless texture images are ready on these pages on my site:

METAL - Artistic - Tile-able
ROCK / STONE- Artistic - Tile-able

Game developers and other content creators keep asking me if they can use my assets in projects intended to make money...the answer is YES! :-) As long as you use my assets within projects and properly attribute me, it's fine. Here's a link to my attribution page:

https://soundimage.org/attribution-info/

What you CANNOT do is resell my assets outright or, say, make an original soundtrack from my music and sell that. That would be illegal. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

In the meantime, stay safe and keep being creative!

Happy Saturday!

I don't "toot my whistle" very often, but I am very proud of this so I thought I'd share:

Btw, if anyone needs some custom assets created, just let me know...I love to help fellow creatives with their projects.

Have a great weekend!  :-)
