Each weekend, starting Friday, I will be giving away something for free; to start it might only be textures, but as I get more into (digital) mixed media, it might be digital stencils, digital brushes, or even an image that you can use. I hope that you enjoy creating with the freebies.

Note: The file will expire Sunday evening at 9:30 PM (Pacific Time). The file is temporarily stored on Dropbox. If you don’t have an account, or don’t want to create one, go to the bottom of the dialog box and click on “NO thanks, continue to view”

Weekend Freebie #21

Since its a holiday weekend here in the U.S., I’m posting earlier in the day, and the freebie will be available until Monday evening.

Today’s freebie is a photo of an ink, or paint, splash that I converted to black and white. The final image size is 6000 x 4000 @ 300 dpi. File size is 13.64 MB.

Here’s some samples using this weeks image.

Have fun with this…use original freebie along with an inverted layer. Play around with Blending Modes, opacity, flipping horizontally/vertically, and layers of color. I would love to see what you create with this texture. Feel free to leave a link to where you’ve posted a picture.

You may sell any artwork you create with this texture, as long as it is not the dominant part of your artwork.

You MAY NOT sell the texture as your own or include it as part of a group/package of downloads.
