Building a Free Library of Images for Everyone

Recommended Posts

I can’t believe April is almost over already. Anyhow, I have some cool new cartoon-style texture images ready on these pages:

TXR – BARK - Cartoon
https://soundimage.org/txr-bark-cartoon/

TXR – GROUND – Cartoon
https://soundimage.org/txr-ground-cartoon/

TXR – ROCK/STONE – Cartoon
https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-cartoon/

Please keep in mind that they are meant to be building blocks rather than polished textures, so feel free to edit / alter / mash / etc., as needed.

Enjoy!

Greetings fellow creatives,

I’ve posted new cartoon-style texture images here:

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon

Some wild textures here…

https://soundimage.org/txr-glass-cartoon/

TXR – METAL – Cartoon

Some dirty metal textures…

https://soundimage.org/txr-metal-cartoon/

TXR – ROCK/STONE – Cartoon

https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-cartoon/

Please keep in mind that they are meant to be building blocks rather than polished textures, so feel free to edit / alter / mash / etc., as needed.

Btw, if you happen to have kids (or know someone who does) I’ve created a learning series that teaches them environmental stewardship in a fun way through stories and characters. It was my first try at making films with a DSLR…(they can be very challenging to work with in the field)…but I think they came out pretty well. The organization I made them for was very happy with them and uses the films all the time…hopefully others can benefit from them as well. Please feel free to share with family, friends, teachers or anyone you know who might find them useful.

Hey there,

I’ve posted some more wild cartoon-style texture images derived from glass objects:

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon
https://soundimage.org/txr-glass-cartoon/

As always, please remember that they are meant to be building blocks rather than polished textures, so feel free to edit / alter / mash / etc., as needed.

Don’t forget to check out my learning series that teaches environmental responsibility in a fun way through stories and characters. The premise is this:

How can we expect children to be the future stewards of the Earth if they don’t feel connected to it?? 

Please share with family, friends, teachers or anyone who might find it useful.

Have a good week!

I can’t believe May is almost over…what the hell happened to spring?  I swear…time is going by faster and faster…yikes!   

Anyhow, more new cartoon-style (for lack of a better word) texture images are here:

TXR – CONCRETE / PAVEMENT – Cartoon
https://soundimage.org/txr-concrete-pavement-cartoon/

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon
Some wild textures here…
https://soundimage.org/txr-glass-cartoon/

TXR – GROUND – Cartoon
https://soundimage.org/txr-ground-cartoon/

TXR – VEGETATION – Cartoon
https://soundimage.org/txr-vegetation-cartoon/

If you find my work helpful (especially my music and sounds) please consider making a donation to my website. The synthesizers I use to create the music and sounds that I share with everyone are very expensive…so expensive, in fact, that I have to make monthly payments on them…and donations really help me a lot to pay for them. Thanks in advance…and please feel free to share your projects…I love to see how creative people are using my work!

One that could work as a river bed in autumn...or perhaps for something else.

Enjoy!

Greetings fellow creatives,

If anyone is interested, I was recently asked to do an interview for a website called Exilian. Hopefully my answers were entertaining and (somewhat) intelligent…lol. Here’s a link if anyone wants to check it out:

https://exilian.co.uk/articles.php

That said, this week’s cool new textures are on the following pages:

TXR – BRICK - Seamless
Some really interesting brick textures.
https://soundimage.org/txr-brick-seamless/

TXR – ROCK/STONE – Seamless
Some new stone textures that could be used for old roads, paths, castles, etc. Some have grass between the stones, too.
https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-seamless/

More music is on its way as well as some cool new city ambience sounds.

Keep being creative!

Hey everyone,

For those of you who have been using my original music in your projects, I’ve had a good number of requests for uncompressed versions of my tracks, so I’ve begun making them available on Gumroad for a small fee to help support the site. The MP3 files that I make freely available sound very good, but the original uncompressed WAV files really sound incredible…give them a try!

If anyone is curious as to why I didn’t upload WAV files onto my site to begin with, the reason is that my web hosting service places limitations on file sizes and WAV files tend to be very large.

Anyhow, it’s going to take some time to upload everything, so if anyone has any requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, just drop me an email and I’ll upload them to Gumroad for you. Feel free to convert to Ogg (or any format you like.)

That said, this week’s new free textures are on the following pages:

TXR – BRICK - Seamless
These might be really nice for castles.
https://soundimage.org/txr-brick-seamless/

TXR – WOOD – Seamless
Perhaps for old doors, structures, barrels or other things.
https://soundimage.org/txr-wood-seamless/

More music and ambient sounds coming this week.

Enjoy and keep being creative!

Gumroad...
:thonkang:
Never heard of it, lol

Yeah, it's really cool...check it out!  :-)

 

Hi guys,

New free images are waiting for your projects on these pages:

ART – Cobblestones
More mad experimenting. I made some pixel art style images from a couple of my cobblestone images. Maybe for castles and things? They look pretty cool scaled down. Feel free to edit / take samples from them / scale them as needed, etc.
https://soundimage.org/art-cobblestones/

ART – Brick
Some new pixel art-style brick images. Trying to come up with some fresh new looks. Feel free to edit / take samples from them / scale them as needed, etc.
https://soundimage.org/art-brick/

MUSIC UPDATE:

WAV files proved too large to upload onto Gumroad in any reasonable amount of time…(we’re talking about 1900+ tracks) so I’m uploading Ogg files instead. I’ve started with my Fantasy page. They sound really great…give them a try!

Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, feel free to contact me.

Have a good week and keep being creative!

.wav files are fully uncompressed audio files; that would take a lot of bandwidth to upload a bunch all at once...

Yeah, people use WAV files in videos, but they are really huge, so I switched to Ogg. They save a lot of space and sound almost as good as WAV files. :-)

 

Anyhow...

 

More mad experimenting this week.

 

I’ve been trying to create some new looks for pixel art-style images, specifically tiles that can be used in 2D games and things.

 

On my ART – Brick page, you’ll find:

A bunch of cool new brick tiles, 64 by 64 pixels each. Some have a 3D look to them.

https://soundimage.org/art-brick/

 

On my ART – Ground page, you’ll find:

A variety of new ground tiles that could work for rocky surfaces, grass, sand, etc.

https://soundimage.org/art-ground/

 

MUSIC UPDATE:

Super high-quality Ogg files are now available for every track on my Fantasy 1 page as well as my Sci-Fi/Space page. And for about half of the tracks on my Looping Music page.

 

Eventually, they will be available for every track on my site.

 

Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks you happen to like, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you.

Enjoy and keep being creative!

Hi guys,

I’ve been super busy this week creating custom music for a bunch of indie projects, but I did manage some more mad experiments with pixel art-style wood tiles...128X128. You can download them freely here:

https://soundimage.org/art-wood/

 

OGG MUSIC UPDATE:

All of the music tracks on my Horror/Surreal page can now be downloaded as very high-quality Ogg files. Halloween’s not too far off, so I’ll try to create more creepy music tracks this month.

Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks that haven’t been made available yet, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you.

Enjoy!
