  RESOURCES - TEXTURE ARCHIVE

I have a hobby of always taking my camera with me when I go some place interesting just in case there are cool textures. I got some pretty funny looks at the zoo when I was taking close up photos of cinder block walls when there were so many cool animals around. I guess you really can't just be "normal" in this profession!

Feel free to use these textures for any project, personal or professional. They are my gift to the 3D community. If you do use them, email me or post a comment in my blog so I'll feel like it was worth the effort to put them up.

Updated 06/01/2013 - I added 74 new textures to the archive.
