Roughing things up for a bit
What, yet another texture pack?
Well, yes and no. Remember Maarten Kleyne? He’s that awesome designer from the Netherlands. He’s created textures for us. We’ve already released three packs so far: the excluded rough grunge pack, the etched into dark pack, and the noisy under atmosphere pack. Well, the part of the story you don’t know yet about is that Maarten created more than these three packs. He created two full collections (but that’s another story).
Today, I’m happy to resume the release of these amazing textures Maarten crafted.
Introducing the rough surface grunge texture pack
The pack includes 15 textures. These feature noise, a bit of depth of field blur, scratches, and general grunginess.
What are they good for?
Well, remember the subtle film textures from a couple weeks ago? These are not like that. These are to obliterate stuff. Let me show you.
At the top, the original image. At the bottom, the result after overlaying a couple texture on the background, and pasting in some layer masks applied to the text.
Neat and efficient, isn’t it?
These are now available on the Arsenal! Have fun with these 15 textures, and don’t hesitate to share with us how you use them. You can tweet at me, at Go Media, or even post in the Arsenal Flickr pool.
Until next time, cheers!
