3D artist Joost Vanhoutte has released three collections of texture resources on Gumroad.

The first consists of 50 photographs of foliage, including leaves, flowers and berries, presented on a transparent background. The resolutions vary from around 1,500 x 2,000 pixels up to 3,500 x 5,000 pixels.

The second pack consists of 52 black-and-white images of fingerprints for use as alphas. The fingerprints are all 1,024 x 1,024 or 2,048 x 2,048 pixels, and also come as Photoshop brushes in the software’s .abr format.

The final collection consists of over 800 photographic images of common weathered surfaces. The images aren’t tiled, and Vanhoutte describes them as being of variable quality, but it’s still a lot of reference material.

All of the resources are licensed for commercial use. You can download them for free by entering a figure of $0 on Gumroad, or make a voluntary donation to show your appreciation and help fund future collections.

Updated 8 December: Joost Vanhoutte has just released a new pack of over 1,000 texture reference images, spanning a range of common surfaces, including wood, paint, concrete and metal.

The full-resolutions images are around 6,000 x 4,000 in size, with the entire archive weighing in at 11.5GB, or there’s a 5.5GB half-resolution download.

The images aren’t tiled, but according to Vanhoutte, quality is more consistent than in the previous pack, so the textures should be sharper and better colour calibrated, with little to no perspective distortion.
