With the addition of Grunge Brushes 6, texturemate now has 60 free brush sets available! Not too bad considering texturemate isn't even 9 months old yet! I hope you enjoy all of the brushes and as soon as Michigan does not have so much snow, I will be outside shooting more textures to upload!
Well I've been too busy lately to upload any new brush sets but I did get some time to upload 56 new free texture images today! They are all outdoor textures of various cement, brick, cobblestone surfaces, etc. There are a few of leaves as well. Hope you like the new stock textures!
Well, even though it is very cold here, the sun was out today so I decided to spend a little time with the camera. I ended up with just about 25 new textures that are now up on the site. Some grungy metal and fabrics that should be useful for you! Hope you enjoy the textures!
Well, after a little downtime, texturemate is on a new dedicated server! The site's traffic has significantly increased lately and the host said it has to be upgraded immediately. I hope you notice that the site should be much faster! The upgraded hosting is a bit pricier but I think the ads on the site can cover it. I want to do what I can to keep texturemate a repository for free textures, free brushes, free patterns, free.... anything design related!
I had a chance to modify some more brick and grass textures so that they are seamless. This should help if you have any large backgrounds or modeling to do with them. I also realized I have enough seamless grass textures to turn them into a grass pattern set for Photoshop or Gimp, so be sure to check out my new Grass 1 Patterns! More free textures to come in the near future as well...
Happy New Years! I hope 2011 brings everyone great design success! Texturemate now has over 50 free brush sets going into 2011... Since we are still covered in snow here, outdoor textures will be slow going for a little while and I will be focusing on free brush sets and free patterns while indoors. I'll try to upload the occasional texture pack as well and get some more seamless textures up.
It's in it's infancy and still has a lot of polishing to do, but texturemate now has Forums. I figured that since we already have over 100 texturemate members, we should probably have a place for discussions and questions. Let me know if you have any feedback or suggestions!
Wow, texturemate already has over 1,000 Facebook Fans and 100 site users! I happened to notice this when uploading a new brush set today. Very cool! At this point, site users can submit links to their own websites or resources, submit their own guest resources, or ask design questions that I will try to answer. Thanks to everyone for the support!
With today's latest texture additions, texturemate now has over 2600 free textures! I've also been uploading a lot of my brush and pattern sets from my collection and will continue to do so.
I have a new scanner so I was able to create some new fabric and crumpled paper textures. I also uploaded some various outdoor textures that have been categorized in metal, grunge, wood, dirt, and leaves. Enjoy! Now that Winter is coming, there will be many more scanned textures of fabrics and papers coming.
