What's in a texture?

October 20, 2013

I've been busy scouring the neighbourhood for all kinds of textures.

Recently, my old hard drive decided it wasn't going to work any more, so I lost my entire texture collection that I had been collecting over the years. Textures can make an otherwise ordinary image visually interesting. I have been categorizing my textures into various groups such as clouds, concrete, flaky paint, light leaks, metal, moisture, stone and wood.

Here are a few quick photo samples of what can be achieved with textures.
