Designers get rocks, wood and rusty metal at SF Textures

5/15/2015

Do you ever wonder how video game developers and graphic designers can make their scenery and objects look so realistic? I mean, do you think they draw every blade of grass in a meadow create a well-weathered barn all by hand?

I’m betting they draw on a texture library like SF Textures. The website has a huge database of texture images that can be used in a variety of projects such as landscape design, game development, 3D modeling, website design and industrial drawings.

SF Textures stocks more than 600 different texture samples. There are 33 stone surfaces, 29 wood images, 31 samples of metal surfaces plus nature, animal and abstract images. I especially like the Grunge collection, which has distressed concrete, beat-up brickwork and lots of rust.

The low-resolution versions of the textures re available for free with high-rez most versions priced at less than $2. SF Textures does not charge royalties, even for commercial use.


You browse the collection and get more details at the SF Textures website and follow @sf_textures on Twitter.
