Building a Library of Images for Everyone

Posted 14 August 2017 - 05:18 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

I've added about 50 new paper textures derived mostly from old book covers, but there are also some distressed blank pages. They are on my TXR - Paper page:

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

Hope some of them are helpful!

I can’t believe April is almost over already. Anyhow, I have some cool new cartoon-style texture images ready on these pages:

TXR – BARK - Cartoon
https://soundimage.o...r-bark-cartoon/

TXR – GROUND – Cartoon
https://soundimage.o...ground-cartoon/

TXR – ROCK/STONE – Cartoon
https://soundimage.o...kstone-cartoon/

Please keep in mind that they are meant to be building blocks rather than polished textures, so feel free to edit / alter / mash / etc., as needed.

Enjoy!

Greetings everyone,

Continuing my mad experiments with various game art styles, I’ve got some pixel art planets and space rocks here:

ART- SPACE
https://soundimage.org/art-space/

They live toward the bottom of the page, so make sure to scroll down.

As always, feel free to edit and modify as needed.

Enjoy!

Hey guys,

More experiments with various game art styles. I’ve got some pixel art-style map templates here:

ART- MAP TEMPLATES
https://soundimage.o...-map-templates/

You’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the page.

It was suggested to me that they might also be useful as backgrounds. Feel free to edit and modify as needed.

Btw, if anyone happens to have kids (or know someone who does) I’ve created a learning series that teaches them environmental stewardship in a fun way through stories and characters. It was my first try at making films with a DSLR…(they can be very challenging to work with in the field)…but I think the films came out pretty well. The organization I made them for was very happy with them and uses the films all the time…hopefully others can benefit from them as well. Please feel free to share with teachers, family, friends or anyone you know who might find them useful.

Enjoy!

Hey there,

I’ve posted some more wild cartoon-style texture images derived from glass objects:

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon
https://soundimage.o...-glass-cartoon/

As always, please remember that they are meant to be building blocks rather than polished textures, so feel free to edit / alter / mash / etc., as needed.

Don’t forget to check out my learning series that teaches environmental responsibility in a fun way through stories and characters. The premise is this:

How can we expect children to be the future stewards of the Earth if they don’t feel connected to it??

Please share with family, friends, teachers or anyone who might find it useful.

Have a good week!

Happy June everyone…summer is almost here!

This week we have a bunch of cool fantasy texture images. Free as always to use with attribution:

On my TXR – BRICK – Seamless page:

Some fantasy brick textures that might be useful for old or dilapidated structures.

https://soundimage.o...brick-seamless/

On my TXR - GROUND page:

One that could work as a river bed in autumn...or perhaps for something else.

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

On my TXR – ORGANIC page:

One that could be an alien skin perhaps.

https://soundimage.org/txr-organic/

And on my ROCK/STONE – Seamless page:

Some new stone texture creations that might come in handy for pathways, buildings or other stone structures.

https://soundimage.o...stone-seamless/

New sounds are on their way as well…I’ll probably post them on Wednesday. Have a good week and see you then!

Btw, I’ve begun my quest to expand the free sound effects section of my website. Any requests?

More cool new music tracks are on their way later in the week.
