This is pretty nice work, Eric. I noticed most of what you have are textures. Have you ever done much with pixel art?

Here’s some cool news:

Free looping video clips are on the way that you’ll be able to use in games, for website backgrounds, Zoom backgrounds and all kinds of other things.

Here’s an example of how I used one as a background for my other website:

https://www.dunesisland.org/episodes

I think it really brings the page to life in a way that static images just can’t.

Anyhow, I’ll be opening those pages soon. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, I have some cool new sci-fi textures for everyone. You’ll find them here:

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

If you find my work helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.

Ogg Music Packs

A good number of game developers have asked me if they can download multiple music tracks all at once instead of one at a time, so I’m making Ogg music packs available that include all of the tracks for any given page once that page is full and I’m no longer adding any more tracks to it.

You’ll see a button near the top of any given page if a music pack is available.

Presently, music packs are available for the following pages:

Action 1
Chiptunes 1-3
Fantasy 1-10
Dark/Ominous
Horror / Surreal
Looping Music
Puzzle Music 1-5
Sci-Fi / Space

If you can, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.

Have a good week and a safe holiday!

I can’t believe 2020 is almost over…talk about a rough year. I hope your projects have been keeping you busy (and helping to keep you sane) during all the chaos and mayhem. Hopefully 2021 will be better.

Anyhow, new seamless sci-fi images are ready. You’ll find them here:
https://soundimage.org/txr-sci-fi/

CUSTOM MUSIC

If anyone happens to need some custom music, I do that as well. Info is here:

https://soundimage.org/custom-work/

Providing music that helps creative people complete their projects is very rewarding…please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need some help.

In the meantime, if you find my free assets helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.

See you in 2021!

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone didn’t drink too much…ha ha. ;-)

To kick off 2021, brand new seamless texture images are waiting for you on these pages:

TXR – Ground – Cartoon

https://soundimage.org/txr-ground-cartoon/

TXR – Metal – Cartoon

https://soundimage.org/txr-metal-cartoon/

TXR – Rock/Stone – Cartoon

https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-cartoon/

The images aren’t necessarily “cartoony” but are more graphical and less realistic than my other images.

NEWS

For those of you using my music tracks, my History page now has Ogg versions of my tracks on it. Ogg tracks have several advantages over MP3 tracks:

-They loop better in game engines (MP3 tracks sometimes need to be edited.)

-They sound amazing…almost as good as the original WAV tracks while being much smaller in size.

-They are a cool way to support my efforts. Give them a try!

In the meantime, if you find my free assets helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.

Have a good week!

Bulk Music Downloads are now available for these genres: Chiptunes, Fantasy, Puzzle and Sci-Fi.

I’ve received an increasing number of requests to make my music tracks available as bulk downloads (rather than downloading them one at a time) so that people can load them into their media players and listen to them while doing other things. Now you can download all of the tracks at once from these genres on my site in higher quality Ogg format: Chiptunes, Fantasy, Puzzle and Sci-Fi. It’s a cool way to support my efforts, too.
