Hi everyone!

It's time for my textures feature again. I will be presenting artists and artworks to you which stood out to me while wandering around in the resources department these past weeks and months. Before I do, I'd like to use the opportunity to ask you if you'd be interested in other journal topics than just features. There's some things here on deviantart that bug me and since everyone has their own voice, it might me a waste not to use mine in order to talk about certain topics. I will certainly make a poll about this as well, but if you happen to read this, I'd be glad to hear if you're interested in reading about critical things like art theft, especially resources-related. Let me know in the comments!

Moving on to the textures feature:


This genious texture pack is made by crumbeling bath bombs! The textures are high quality black and white textures, offering the opportunity to coloring them in the exact way that suits your work best. I think it's amazing and deserves a little recognition!

Bokeh Texture Pack I by ooc-sdz
As many of you know, my man Sirius-sdz has a second resources account, sharing his raw, unedited out-of-camera textures: ooc-sdz. Now if you like to use bokeh textures to bring some light into your works, you'd be wise to check out this amazing texture pack and of course his gallery, offering thousands of beautiful unedited textures.

Grungy paper texture v.17 by bashcorpo Grungy paper texture v.15 by bashcorpo Grungy paper texture v.18 by bashcorpo Grungy paper texture v.20 by bashcorpo
I am happy to share that my alltime favorite paper textures supplier is back with great new material! bashcorpo told me that he finds a lot of this stunning decaying papers in abandoned places. I highly recommend checking out his gallery!

89 by Infrablack-stock 90 by Infrablack-stock 91 by Infrablack-stock
My friend's Infrablack-stock's works have developed such a depth and elegance that sometimes I wish I was capable of bringing to my own work. I admire her sense of composition and through my eyes she is one of the best textures artists there currently are on deviantart.

Here's a few other texture favorites of mine:

In den Osten Deutschlands, Raum Leipzig, eine Freundin besuchen. Inklusive natürlich Kulturausflug nach Dresden und Bimmelbähnchenfahren im Erzgebirge. ;)

Ha! Da bin ich auch grade ;) Wohne allerdings hier, in Berlin. Leipzig ist toll, da war ich bisher leider nur einmal und auch nur kurz, aber ich habe gehört, dass sich die Stadt ganz schön gemausert hat über die letzten Jahre. Dresden mag ich auch unheimlich, da war ich paar Tage länger. Die Innenstadt gefällt mir unfassbar gut und die Bauten sowieso. Und dann gibt es da diesen tollen Schokoladendalden, wo ich die beste Schokolade gekauft habe, die ich je gegessen habe. Durch das Elbsandsteingebirge bin ich damals gewandert, habe allerdings das Wandern gehasst, die Aussicht geliebt. Was war dein Highlight und warst du schon mal in Berlin?

Thank you so much for the wonderful feature and words, mrs. Svenja. I'm mighty glad and honored ^^; :hug:
mercurycode's avatar
That makes me happy to hear ;) I hope you'll continue to submit some great textures when you get the chance. I will be here to feature them! I might not be as spectacular as the Oatmeal (how awesome is it he's used one of your textures?? It can't get any better, can it?) but I still love making features!
