In last week’s vintage logo tutorial we saw how useful vector textures can be to create that aged and weathered appearance, while maintaining a scaleable vector format. So this week I’ve gone ahead and created a pack of new texture files to give you extra choice when grunging up your vector work. Download these textures along with my vector bumper pack for free!
Over this last weekend I did a little DIY which involved spray paint. I saw this as a great opportunity to create some fresh design resources for my blog! This latest freebies is a pack of 6 high resolution spray paint Photoshop brushes, with a mix of heavy splatters, fine sprays and long runs.
Out of the array of decorative fonts available on the web handwritten fonts are absolutely the most useful. For me finding that exact style of handwriting I was looking for has always been time consuming, so I put together this roundup of the best hand drawn fonts I could find. In this collection you’re sure to find a style to match your project, download them all for free or bookmark this page for future reference.
Intense light effects are one of the key elements of many styles of digital art. In this post I’ll be rounding up my best picks of Photoshop brushes and resources to add cool light streaks, bright lens flares, detailed fractal swirls and smooth light streams to your artwork. As always these resources have been downloaded and tested to make sure they’re good enough quality and resolution for use in your design projects.
There’s plenty of standard texture files available for use in your designs, but good quality seamless or repeating textures are much more difficult to find. This post rounds up a huge collection of useful seamless texture files, including paper, metal, concrete, fabric and good old grungy resources. Being tileable means these textures will repeat to fill an infinite space, which makes them perfect for backgrounds in your website designs.
Today I’ve got a free texture pack that’s a little different, but I hope it will help you create some cool effects in your artworks. This pack contains 6 high resolution plastic wrap textures that are not only handy for creating packaged product effects, but can also be used to add some cool grungy distress marks to your designs.
