(Eric Matyas) #8

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?


(Eric Matyas) #15

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!


(Eric Matyas) #16

Happy July!

This week we have more new fantasy textures to add to my 4000+ images:

A bunch of new fantasy ground images here:

TXR- Ground

Here’s a new charred-looking fantasy brick texture:

TXR- Brick -Seamless

And a new fantasy stone/brick texture:

TXR – Rock/Stone - Seamless

All are free to use with attribution. Attribution information is here:

Have a good week!

This week, we have some cool new fantasy wood textures…maybe useful for old ships, barrels, boardwalks, structures, doors, etc…

TXR- WOOD - Seamless

Enjoy…and keep being creative!


(Eric Matyas) #18

Greetings!

This week’s new seamless textures are on the following pages:

TXR - GROUND Some cool new ground cover textures.

TXR – SCI-FI These could be used for all kinds of things I’m sure.

(Make sure to scroll down for seamless textures.)

I hope everyone had a good weekend!


(Eric Matyas) #19

This week’s new seamless textures are all fantasy textures:

TXR - METAL - Seamless Some grungy textures…perhaps for urban-based structures or sci-fi things?

TXR – ROCK / STONE – Fantasy These don’t exist in reality but are combinations of other images that I’ve created.

Have a good week and keep being creative!


(Eric Matyas) #20

Hi Folks,

I have some cool new seamless textures ready for your projects. They are on the following pages:

TXR- ALIEN SKINS Might work for creature skin or perhaps vegetation.

TXR – GROUND Some new gritty sand textures. Might come in handy for sandy bottoms of things. (Scroll down to the seamless images area.)

TXR – ROCK / STONE – Fantasy Some more fantasy stone textures.

Enjoy!


(Eric Matyas) #21

Hi guys,

I’m in the middle of a big project, but I managed to get some new free textures done for everyone. They are on the following pages:

TXR – BRICK - Seamless

Some new fantasy cobblestone images. Maybe useful for paths and roads in fantasy-based games?

TXR - ABSTRACT

Some new abstract textures. Maybe for sci-fi projects?

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.

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.

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

TXR – WOOD – Seamless Perhaps for old doors, structures, barrels or other things.

More music and ambient sounds coming this week.

Enjoy and keep being creative!

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.

On my ART – Ground page, you’ll find:

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

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!

I was busy shooting a film over the weekend, but I managed to do some mad experiments creating pixel art-style tiles. These were derived from glass surfaces, but might be used for other things as well. Free to use with attribution. Enjoy!
