Finally got a nice day in the Buffalo N.Y. area and I wanted to snap some grungey style textures with my phone. I accidentally shot these in the wrong resolution and thought I would post them here as a freebie grunge texture pack. The images are unedited, and 640 x 480 px in jpeg format. I usually shoot my textures in a much higher resolution but I’m sure these are still usable to more than a few people out there. There’s about 14 images in total, the sample picture shows a few examples. All freebies are served thru Mega to help conserve bandwidth on my server. Enjoy!
With all the web designing, social networking and trying to get my site up and functioning, I just haven’t had time to do any graphic design work. According to twitter, today is #NationalDrinkWineDay so I decided to crack open a bottle of wine when I got home from my day job, and play around with one of my favorite graphics programs, Gimp. My idea of a little rest and relaxation.
I wanted to do something a little different and came across this video on Youtube of a guy creating a old paper type of effect. The end result looks like an old pirate map. He uses the basic program, with the basic filters, the only thing you might need is a good set of grunge brushes, so if you don’t have those, go to your favorite search engine,search Gimp grunge brushes, and then watch the video. Enjoy.
