Bill's picture

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!

texturemate is on a new server!

Bill's picture

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!

New Seamless Brick and Seamless Grass Textures Added

Bill's picture

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...

texturemate now has a Forum!

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!

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.

I uploaded thirty five more textures that I photographed today. I happened to come across a 55 gallon drum of dripping paint and captured some grungy drippy textures! There's some other metal and flaking painted plastic surfaces as well. Hope you like them! Last night I uploaded a new wood brush set as well.
