Here are 10 more high resolution 2500 pixel by 2500 pixel brushes of cement surfaces in a single .abr file that will work with Adobe Photoshop CS5 or Gimp 2.4 and newer. These cement texture brushes have pretty good contrast and transparency and can be used to make some grungy looking surfaces. Let me know what you think!

This isn't what I'm usually into, but I had some fun using some plug-ins and procedural stuff to create 60 bright, trippy, obnoxious patterns. They are all seamless and tillable at 128 pixels by 128 pixels. They kind of remind me of some of the clothing styles that have been out lately! Anyways, maybe you'll find them useful for something...

In the spirit of my last pattern site, I took a bunch of vertical stripes and added some grunge textures and effects to them. In this set, all stripes are vertical. I stayed with blues, black, and white, figuring it's easy enough for you to change the color to what you want. There are 30 total, and all are 512 pixels by 512 pixels. Included in...
