Building a Library of Images for Everyone

Hey guys,

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

ART- 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!

Greetings fellow creatives,

I’ve posted new cartoon-style texture images here:

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon

Some wild textures here…

TXR – METAL – Cartoon

Some dirty metal textures…

TXR – ROCK/STONE – 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.

Hey there,

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

TXR – 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!

I can’t believe May is almost over…what the hell happened to
spring? I swear…time is going by faster and
faster…yikes!

Anyhow, more new cartoon-style (for lack of a better word) texture
images are here:

TXR – CONCRETE / PAVEMENT – Cartoon

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon

Some wild textures here…

TXR – GROUND – Cartoon

TXR – VEGETATION – Cartoon

If you find my work helpful (especially my music and sounds)
please consider making a donation to my website. The synthesizers I use to
create the music and sounds that I share with everyone are very expensive…so
expensive, in fact, that I have to make monthly payments on them…and donations
really help me a lot to pay for them. Thanks in advance…and please feel free to
share your projects…I love to see how creative people are using my work!

Hey guys,

More fantasy texture images await you…free as always to use with attribution.

TXR –ABSTRACT

They’re pretty wild….I’d be really interested to see how someone puts these to use!

TXR – ALIEN SKINS

Some nasty looking stuff here…blech!

TXR - METAL – SEAMLESS

These grungy metal textures might be useful for sci-fi or urban-themed projects.

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

Greetings fellow creatives,

If anyone is interested, I was asked
to do an interview for a website called Exilian. Hopefully my answers
were entertaining and (somewhat) intelligent…lol. Here’s a link if
anyone wants to check it out:

https://exilian.co.uk/articles.php

That said, this week’s cool new textures are on the following pages:

TXR – BRICK - Seamless
Some really interesting brick textures.

TXR – ROCK/STONE – Seamless
Some new stone textures that could be used for old roads, paths, castles, etc. Some have grass between the stones, too.

More music is on its way as well as some cool new city ambience sounds.

Keep being creative!

Hey everyone,

For those of you who have been using my original
music in your projects, I’ve had a good number of requests for
uncompressed versions of my tracks, so I’ve begun making them available
on Gumroad for a small fee to help support the site. The MP3 files that I
make freely available sound very good, but the original uncompressed
WAV files really sound incredible…give them a try!

If anyone is
curious as to why I didn’t upload WAV files onto my site to begin with,
the reason is that my web hosting service places limitations on file
sizes and WAV files tend to be very large.

Anyhow, it’s going to
take some time to upload everything, so if anyone has any requests for
WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, just drop me an email and
I’ll upload them to Gumroad for you. Feel free to convert to Ogg (or any
format you like.)

That said, this week’s new free textures are on the following pages:

TXR – BRICK - Seamless
These might be really nice for castles.

TXR – WOOD – Seamless
Perhaps for old doors, structures, barrels or other things.

More music and ambient sounds coming this week.

Enjoy and keep being creative!

Hi guys,

New free images are waiting for your projects on these pages:

ART – Cobblestones
More
mad experimenting. I made some pixel art style images from a couple of
my cobblestone images. Maybe for castles and things? They look pretty
cool scaled down. Feel free to edit / take samples from them / scale
them as needed, etc.

ART – Brick
Some
new pixel art-style brick images. Trying to come up with some fresh new
looks. Feel free to edit / take samples from them / scale them as
needed, etc.

MUSIC UPDATE:

WAV
files proved too large to upload onto Gumroad in any reasonable amount
of time…(we’re talking about 1900+ tracks) so I’m uploading Ogg files
instead. I’ve started with my Fantasy page. They sound really great…give
them a try!

Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, feel free to contact me.

Have a good week and keep being creative!

More mad experimenting this week.

I’ve been trying to create some new looks for pixel art-style images,
specifically tiles that can be used in 2D games and things.

On my ART – Brick page, you’ll find:
A bunch of cool new brick tiles, 64 by 64 pixels each. Some have a 3D look to them.

On my ART – Ground page, you’ll find:
A variety of new ground tiles that could work for rocky surfaces, grass, sand, etc.

MUSIC UPDATE:

Super high-quality Ogg files are now available for every track on my
Fantasy 1 page as well as my Sci-Fi/Space page. And for about half of
the tracks on my Looping Music page.

Eventually, they will be available for every track on my site.

Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks you
happen to like, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for
you.

Enjoy and keep being creative!

Hi guys,

I’ve been super busy this week creating custom music for a
bunch of indie projects, but I did manage some more mad experiments with pixel
art-style wood tiles…128X128. You can download them freely here:

OGG MUSIC UPDATE:

All
of the music tracks on my Horror/Surreal page can now be downloaded as very
high-quality Ogg files. Halloween’s not too far off, so I’ll try to create more
creepy music tracks this month.

Meanwhile,
if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks that haven’t been made
available yet, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you.

Enjoy!
