Building a Library of Free Images for Everyone

PostMon Apr 01, 2019 11:05 am

Hi Folks,

I've been building a library of thousands of images that might be useful under titles, for visual effects and for other things. They are on the "TXR" pages on my website. All I ask in return is to be attributed in your videos as explained on my site.

Here are the newest ones:

TXR – CONCRETE / PAVEMENT – Seamless
https://soundimage.org/txr-concrete-pavement-seamless/

TXR – GROUND
https://soundimage.org/txr-ground/

TXR – VEGETATION
https://soundimage.org/txr-vegetation/

I hope some of my images are helpful. Brand new music tracks are coming on Wednesday.

Have a good week!

Hi Eric. Are there any free image efforts out there. I remember 21 years ago proposing an film industry library of free 3D models and textures in order to reduce the cost of 3D production. With the Nvidua ray tracing GPU cards it's time for that.

Turbosquid has free models and things...paid ones, too. That's the only site I know of. [url][/url]

You guys are very welcome!

I had a very busy weekend, but I managed to get some new fantasy textures done. Possibly useful for VFX or maybe other things.

First up, some seamless bumpy stone textures that look like they could be covered with moss, algae or maybe lichens. These might look cool for pathways. They are here:

TXR – GROUND
https://soundimage.org/txr-ground/

Here are some cool stained glass textures that might look nice for windows of churches or other fantasy structures…maybe for RPGs. They are here:

TXR – GLASS
https://soundimage.org/txr-glass/

New music tracks will be coming out later in the week.

Enjoy!

You're very welcome...I hope some of my work is helpful! :-)

Greetings fellow creatives,

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

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon

Some wild textures here…

https://soundimage.org/txr-glass-cartoon/

TXR – METAL – Cartoon

Some dirty metal textures…

https://soundimage.org/txr-metal-cartoon/

TXR – ROCK/STONE – Cartoon

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

Btw, if you happen 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 they 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 family, friends, teachers or anyone you know who might find them useful.

Hey there,

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

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon
https://soundimage.org/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.

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
https://soundimage.org/txr-concrete-pavement-cartoon/

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon
Some wild textures here…
https://soundimage.org/txr-glass-cartoon/

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

TXR – VEGETATION – Cartoon
https://soundimage.org/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!
