Buy more textures!

I've been utterly overwhelmed with the response to these images and since, being me (that is somewhat obsessive compulsive), I've created a gazillion of the things, I'm putting some up for sale on the micro-stock site FeaturePics.

So if you like the freebies and want more, head this way:
www.featurepics.com/Authors/Images12379.aspx

All images are US$1 - yep, just $1 per image.

How these textures are created

For those curious as to how they are made, I make them by creating a charcoal drawing/rubbing first on different paper stocks. I photograph or scan these, using the rough edges of the paper as the black frames for the texture. Then I overlay subtle texture photographs from my stock library (my own work) until I have a texture base I'm happy with. Sometimes I add a colour layer as well.

I'm kinda addicted now, and spend a lot of time snapping new textures, creating new frames, making charcoal rubbings and creating digital brushes, actions etc etc etc... so much fun!
