Free 2D Game Art for Your Projects


(Eric Matyas) #1

Hi everyone,

I’ve begun creating 2D game art that you are welcome to freely use in your projects. Some is pixel art, some is derived from 3D objects that I created, and others are backgrounds that might be useful in visual novels and interactive fiction. You’ll find them on my new “ART” pages on my website:

The art pages are located at the bottom of the menu list on the right side of the screen.

At this point I’m experimenting with different styles and methods so hopefully I will be able to offer a good variety of things. Please feel free to modify / edit as needed. If you happen to find any of these images helpful and decide to use them, please attribute me in the “game art” section of your credits area.

Enjoy!

I ventured into new territory this week and experimented with creating animated game art. Made a couple of lanterns that might work in RPGs or other things. One is an old style hand-held one…the other might work for a street or attached to a tavern or inn. Both shimmer with an amber glow. You’ll find them here:

I also created a treasure chest (with a couple of variations) that might come in handy. They are here:

Feel free to edit as needed.

Enjoy!

I opened a new page this week that has templates for maps. They might be handy for treasure maps, game world maps, etc. Just add graphics and text.

You’ll find them here:

Feel free to edit as needed.

Enjoy!

Happy Sunday everyone!

I’ve started experimenting with creating pixel art-style objects. You’ll find them here:

ART – Glass Objects

ART – Space

As always, feel free to edit as needed.

Cool new textures are on their way tomorrow.

Please feel free to edit as needed.

More new music is on is on its way. For daily updates as I release new tracks, follow me here:

Have a good weekend!

Happy Monday everyone (if that’s even possible.) Anyhow, here are some new seamless textures that might come in handy in you projects. Feel free to modify as needed:

TXR – BRICK - Seamless

TXR – CONCRETE / PAVEMENT – Seamless

TXR – ROCK / STONE 2

I’m releasing new music tracks on Wednesday and some cool nighttime urban backgrounds that might look nice in visual novels and such. Those should be ready by Friday.

Have a good week!

Hey guys,

I’ve created some new nighttime urban backgrounds that might look atmospheric in visual novels, interactive comics or other kinds of games. You’ll find them here:

ART- Backgrounds – Urban

Feel free to edit / modify as needed.

Enjoy!

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

TXR – GROUND – Cartoon

TXR – ROCK/STONE – 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!

Hi guys,

More new cartoon-style texture images ready on these pages:

TXR – ABSTRACT – Cartoon

TXR – BRICK – Cartoon

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon

TXR – ROCK/STONE – 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.

Have a good week!

Hey guys,

More experiments with various game art styles. I’ve got some pixel art-style map templates here:

ART- MAP TEMPLATES

You’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the page.

It was suggested to me that they might also be useful as backgrounds. Feel free to edit and modify as needed.

Btw, if anyone happens 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 the films 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 teachers, family, friends or anyone you know who might find them useful.

Enjoy!

Hey there,

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

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

TXR – GLASS – Cartoon Some wild textures here…

TXR – GROUND – Cartoon

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!

Happy June everyone…summer is almost here!

This week we have a bunch of cool fantasy texture images. Free as always to use with attribution:

On my TXR – BRICK – Seamless page:

Some fantasy brick textures that might be useful for old or dilapidated structures.

On my TXR - GROUND page:

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

On my TXR – ORGANIC page:

One that could be an alien skin perhaps.

And on my ROCK/STONE – Seamless page:

Some new stone texture creations that might come in handy for pathways, buildings or other stone structures.

New sounds are on their way as well…I’ll probably post them on Wednesday. Have a good week and see you then!


(Eric Matyas) #14

Hey guys,

More fantasy texture images await you…free as always to use with attribution.

TXR –ABSTRACT

They’re pretty wild….I’d be really interested to see how someone puts these to use!

TXR – ALIEN SKINS

Some nasty looking stuff here…blech!

TXR - METAL – SEAMLESS

These grungy metal textures might be useful for sci-fi or urban-themed projects.

Btw, I’ve begun my quest to expand the free sound effects section of my website. Any requests?

Another super-busy week last week, but I did manage to create a bunch of new grimy metal textures. They live here:

TXR – Metal - Seamless

100% free to use with attribution.

More cool new music tracks are on their way later in the week.

See you then!
