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

Hi everyone,

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

I think that's all pretty cool, thank you.

You're very welcome!

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!

Request: I could use some images of trees in a forest. Different densities, time of day, some showing sky, some not. Perhaps some showing a trail on the ground...basic "adventure in the forest along a path" idea.

Any cool features in a forest, like fallen trees, stumps, a well, a bridge, a cabin...

I'll see what I can do. The foliage where I live is a bit scrubby and tropical, but I'm sure I can find some cool things.

In the meantime...

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:

I hope some of them are helpful!

Oh, no problem if it isn't feasible for you.

I appreciate what you're doing, and you seem to be providing interesting textures. For IF authors specifically, I think photos of locations and objects might be more useful than textures. If we're going to include images, I'd venture more of us are likely to edit a free 2D image instead of building a 3D object from scratch. It would be wonderful to have original stock images that could represent items and locations, like a house or a dagger or a city or a boat.

We're probably not your sole audience, though, and I love browsing free music and image archives for ideas!

You're exactly right...my work is often used by game developers and indie filmmakers as well. This is great to know though and I'd be very happy to shoot images of places and objects during my travels. If anyone has requests, just let me know. :-)

In the meantime...

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!

This seems relevant as a source for potential game assets: http://www.metmuseum.org/press/news/2017/open-access
