.resources: brushes, textures textures textures, stock

Wasn't going to post until next week, but the day took a turn for the suck and I needed something to help me perseverate for a while. Yeah, did not escape unscathed from Friday the 13th :/

For your delectation: A lot of resources in the form of brushes, large textures, icon textures, and stock photos. There is also a very important question at the end.

(In the preview you will observe some representatives of the brush set, as well as some of the large textures reworked for icon-sized space.)

A set of 18 ink/wash brushes from an impromptu decision to fling ink around my study to celebrate buying a new set of brushes because I lost my old ones. (When I say "celebrate," I'm being sarcastic. Still annoyed.) Anyway, the preview shows them used in icons, though the brushes are larger and of varying sizes.

+9 1600.1200 photos of various walls in my house and old apartment. Some of them have worked really well as bases for the collages I've done--they add a bit of texture to the background without being too complicated. There are also a couple of winter sky stock photos I tossed in because I like them but haven't got anything else to go with them.


.large textures
+7 large textures, mostly around 700.300. They tend towards bold colors because I realized I don't have enough bold stuff in my collection :)


.icon textures
+3 sets of 100.100 textures. I included the large collages I clipped them from in the .zip file.

And now, the question! My general practice with textures is to make large images, cut out squares of various sizes and resize them to 100.100. and include the large images in the .zip file for people to experiment with. Is the making of icon-sized textures, then, kind of a redundant action? I'm kind of curious as to if people prefer the large textures to the icon-sized.

Very definitely answered :) Thank you so much!
