Building a Library of Images for Everyone
« on: 18 Jan 2017, 13:09 »
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

First music, now textures.
You're really outdoing yourself. ;)

Thanks for these. They could be very useful if I ever make a 3D game.

You're very welcome...I hope some of my images 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/
http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

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,

Eric

Hi everyone,

A whole bunch of new seamless texture images are ready for you 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!

Eric

thanks for all the free stuff you offer eric, this is awesome. But just like you have 2 threads for music and textures imho it is better to either have 2 separate websites for each ressource or at least have these sorted in the header (the links) with a clear separation by a horizontal line
or put them in completely different boxes (divs). Keep up the good work! ;-D

Whoa, that has got to be by far the best 3D render I've ever seen on this forum. 8-0

My site is actually a wordpress site so it's a bit limited...I'm planning to eventually overhaul the entire thing. Thanks for the feedback and I hope my work is helpful!  :)

I just realized I haven't thanked you yet for this! (roll)
I do 3D so textures are always welcomed! (nod)

Many thanks, and I'll be sure to check your site first, next time I'm after new textures for one of my models. :-D

I've opened a new page of free sky images that might come in handy in your projects:
http://soundimage.org/txr-skies/

I also added a bunch of new wood images here:
http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/


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,

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

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!

Hi everyone,

I've uploaded about 50 new metal texture images. Feel free to edit them as needed. You'll find them here:

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

I hope some of them are helpful!

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.

More are on the way.  :-)

Hey Eric, you are beginning to have a huge collection of textures.  :-D

Is there a way to download a zip pack with them?
Maybe creating a month zip with the new textures inside? Downloading one at a time is a lot of work.  8-0 And when I'm working in 3D I end up using the textures I have already downloaded, and only go after a new one if I need a particular one.
Would be nice to be able to create a foler with your name in, and then sub-folders for the categories. Would be great to keep track and help me properly credit you for the textures.

I'll check to see if my hosting service allows for that...thanks! :smiley:

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.

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

Have a good weekend!

Hey. :)

Just to let you know that I used a few of your textures on my BG blitz entry here: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=54719.msg636560523#msg636560523 :-D

Thanks!
