Here is set of arrow brushes that can be used to add a hand drawn touch to your design project. These brushes can also be useful for diagrams, powerpoints, or other documents where you may need to place some arrows here and there. These arrow brushes are pretty big to where they can be used for most things, but not gigantic so they don't take up...

Here's a set of Photoshop brushes created from an old spray can with a lot of drip to it so that they came out pretty messy - which is good. These brushes were scanned in at pretty high resolution so they are all around 2000 pixels in size or so. Rattle can brushes are useful to me in a lot of grungey type design work, so I figured I would share...

My previous Spray Paint Drip Brush set is one of my most downloaded free brush sets, so I got around to making another brush set! I create these brushes by actually spraying painting some paper and letting it drip, then scanning it and turning it into a Photoshop brush. These brushes are great for some grungey design projects. This set of...

Since my last free brush set was a pack of bokeh brushes, I figured that I should share these hexagon bokeh brushes as well. This brush set is useful for quickly adding bokeh blurred lighting effects with hexagon shapes. These hexagons have borders of various sizes and blurriness. This set of brushes was created in Photoshop 7 so that it will...

I was working on some bokeh effect lighting for a design project and realized that I haven't shared any free bokeh brushes yet, so I packaged some up really quick! These round bokeh brushes are about as simple as it gets in terms of brushes. They are essentially circles with brighter outer rings of various widths and maybe have some blur applied...

This brush set would probably be better timed for Valentines Day but I've had the set around and figured I should upload it before I forget. Maybe someone will need hearts for a design project in the fall. These heart brushes are of various sizes and shapes of hearts with different shading effects applied to them. This set of heart brushes...

I had some fun using different smoothing algorithms to generated these seamless pattern tile sets. Various cubes were rendered and then had smoothing filters applied to create some neat looking tile sets. I left them all in monochrome so that you can color them as you wish. Each pattern is saved as a .png file that can easily be imported into...

Lately, I've been involved in a 2D Zombie Platform Shooter that is now available on online and in the Android Play Store. Along with the release of the initial version of the game, I've decided to also give away the tile sheets used in the game. In this free download, you will get 3 tile-sheet images. Two png's contain many seamless 50 pixel...

I cruised through quite a few of my wood textures and picked out some of the better textures that have good lighting and are in focus that could be considered bark textures. Perhaps in the future, I should start a 'Bark' category of textures, but for now, here is a texture pack of bark textures! There are ten textures, each is ten megapixel in...

Here are ten seamless patterns that have an abstract pixel art feel to them. Each pattern is in grey-scale and creates a pretty wild background. Some of these patterns almost create a temple-looking carved background and were generated using various noise generators and then made seamless. Each pattern is saved as a .png file that can easily be...

I had some fun using some software to generate stripes along with a couple noise filters to give the appearance of a denim texture or material. The challenge with the noise is to make it appear seamless for a pattern, which I think worked well. Here are 10 denim patterns with various stripes in them and in various shades of blue jean color. Let...

I've been getting asked more often lately on how to take a high quality texture photograph so I will give it a shot and reveal the issues I've had making sure texture photographs are high quality and determining if they should be shared or not. A good texture image can be taken with any camera from a simple point-and-shoot camera up to a...

I selected 10 random higher quality rock textures and bundled them into one zip file for download. These textures are fairly high resolution, taken from a 10 megapixel camera. I hope you enjoy this free texture pack!

Vector art in the form of SVG files has become more and more popular. Web browsers typically can render SVG files on their own now, which allows a lot of advantages to vector art. I've been learning more and more about vectors and have begun to collect free vector at a new repository site, Vectorstash. Due to bandwidth requirements, I decided...
