Portfolio - Art Building a Library of Images for Everyone

Hi everyone,

I've been building a free 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

I've got a bunch of new fantasy stone and metal images ready...both standard and seamless. I think they look pretty cool. Make sure to left click on them to see the full sized images. You'll find them here:

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

I'll be out and about this week searching for new textures to photograph. If anyone has any requests for certain types of images, I'll be happy to keep my eyes open for them. Just let me know. :)

Cool of you to post these. :)
No problem...I hope some of them are helpful! :)

I photographed a lot of cool textures last week that I'm sure could be used in all kinds of things. You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-brick/
http://soundimage.org/txr-concrete/
http://soundimage.org/txr-ground/
http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/
http://soundimage.org/txr-vegetation/

Again, if anyone has requests for certain types of images, I'll be happy to keep my eyes open for them. Just let me know. :)

Have a good week,

Thanks, these are great
You're very welcome! :)

Hi everyone,

A whole bunch of new seamless texture images are ready for everyone on the following pages:

TXR - Brick
TXR - Concrete/Pavement
TXR - Foliage
TXR - Ground
TXR - Stone
TXR - Wood

Feel free to generate maps from them (displacement, specular, etc) as needed. If you need me to create them custom for you, drop me an email...(my email address is at the bottom of my homepage.)

I hope some of them are helpful!

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,

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!

Thanks man! Do you happen to have any leather textures?
Sure, I can certainly create some for you. Feel free to send me an email with what you need. (My email address is at the bottom of my homepage.)

In the meantime...

I've uploaded about 150 new texture images, seamless and standard. As always, feel free to edit as needed. You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-bark/
http://soundimage.org/txr-brick/
http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/
http://soundimage.org/txr-vegetation/
http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

Paper textures (for maps, backgrounds, etc.) are on their way as well. Hopefully I'll have a brand new page full of them by next week. :)

Hmm I am not usually impressed by people's textures but I have to say I am impressed.
These are some of the best FPS textures I have seen on the internet.

Now my other thing to say is this.
I have a love-hate relationship with free game assets. Because using someone else's free characters feels off, like it's not truly an original game. I am not a big fan of Project Spark because it is icky to me because there seems like no real creativity in it.
With custom sci-fi weapons I feel the same way.
However, guns and cars I am cool with. Because guns and cars are real life entity, so they don't have to be creative, thus having them in your game doesnt give you that icky feeling of lack of creativity.
With sci-fi textures, its the same. You can use them in so many ways and mix and match them it doesn't feel like it's truly limiting the creativity.

Thanks, I really appreciate it!

I just opened a new page of paper textures that might be useful for maps, backgrounds and other things:

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

As always, feel free to edit as needed.

Next week I'll begin adding distressed paper textures which should (hopefully) look really cool.

Have a great weekend! :)

Greetings!

I've uploaded about 100 new fabric texture images on my TXR - FABRIC page. They are all seamless, 2048X2048 and ready for tiling.

New fabric types include Leather, Rayon, Metal Linens, Dyed Acrylics and various weaves.

They might be useful for clothes for characters, furniture coverings, carpets, or anything else you can think of.

You'll find them here:

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

I hope some of them are useful! :)

Happy New Year Everyone!

In case you haven't already noticed, I've tried to improve navigation on my site by creating a categorized menu of links to all my pages on the right-hand side of each page. (If you don't immediately see it, scroll down a bit.) I hope it's helpful!

That said, I've uploaded about 40 new free images on the following pages:

TXR - GROUND
http://soundimage.org/txr-ground/

TXR - ROCK/STONE 2
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-2/

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


Have a good week!

Hello

Nice to see some people still doing stuff like this, this is a really neat library for some people. The textures could also be used for study drawing in 2D textures or 3D Textures + you offer also FX and Music what is fantastic i hope you get all credits you deserve for that, and keep up the great work.

Best Regards
