Art section - Free textures, photos and seamless textures under public domain / CC-0 license

This is the Art-Section.

<--- Use the menu on the left to browse through the categories.

This is becoming a general repository for free and open source compatible digital art, for everyone to use without conditions. It gets regularly updated with new content.

The categories:

Texture photos: Contains photos made for the intention of making seamless textures for level design or webdesign or to be used for texture painting in blender. They will also go well with image editing in applications like Gimp, Photoshop, Illustrator etc.

Normal photos: This is for general artistic or scenery photography and not directly suited for texturing.

Textures: This stands for edited texture photos so they can be more directly used in applications. It means that they have been made either seamless, shadows removed, alpha cut out and/or material layers and settings generated for them like normal maps, ambient occlusion, specular maps, height maps, alpha mask etc.

Synthetic textures: The same as textures but this contains only artificially created texture patterns, like painted by hand, generated with filter algorithms or from rendered 3d-Models. So these may not be all very realistic, so if you need realistic textures stay with textures.

3D-Models: This will become an archive of game-ready 3D-Models. Since I'm creating a free open source game, I will release the source files of the models created for it here also. They are mostly made for the game engine Torque3D, so they will be compatible with it and easy to use with it. But this category can also contain other 3D-Models for example general patterns to render textures from, sketches, or work in progress.
