I love the colour of the hair against the dress. As an image by itself it's lovely and the contrasts of the green trees against the red...

:bulletblack: fav if you download

:bulletblack: credit AND link back to this account if you use it

:bulletblack: send me a note or leave a comment on this page with a link to your creation, I'd really like to see what you make with it

:bulletblack: you can use it to create other textures IF you credit and IF you make the texture freely availabe to other Deviants

:bulletblack: be creative with it

:bulletblack: prints are fine if you used it for any of your creations - be it on DA, Redbubble or anywhere else, just be sure to give credit and a link back to this account anywhere you use it.

Brush Sets

:bulletblack: Use them in paintings, photo manipulations for your portfolio.

:bulletblack: Non-commercial use only unless you bought a license (see below). You can however print your creation for your personal use (or for a present) or create prints on DA or Redbubble for people to buy. You cannot use them to create a book or CD cover or re-sell the brush set.

I paint (usually on the computer in Corel Painter)
I take photos and merge them into collages (usually in Adobe Photoshop)

Welcome to Texturevault, Sybille.
Interesting your textures.

Thank you. :-) I am still finding my way around. I find it really difficult that they only accept images that are in 'sharp focus' as I have a lot of natural bokeh images which I'd love to post there but which I know would be rejected. :-(
yko-54 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2011
He, I know.
Texturevault attaches great importance to the focus and noise.
However, there is a category of "bokeh", but you have to remove the grains of noise with a little "out of focus". And this for photos of clouds, too.
You can try.

It's very odd. The way I use textures seems to be very different from the way they use them. It's one thing to want a 'sharp' texture for a background or to fill an area and another to want a texture to use as an overlay. I mostly use very soft textures to use as overlays to add a 'feeling of texture' more than distracting texture that would obscure my image. Sigh.

I'll see what I can do with my natural bokeh textures. I never know what they'll accept and what they don't.
