Goodtextures first went online in 2009 and has since undergone several iterations. With each upgrade, the site has seen an improvement in design, functionality and content.
The core aims of goodtextures have over the years remained the same. Goodtextures is about sharing high quality content, textures, ideas and knowledge free of charge to the global CG community. The added difference now, is that I would like to extend my hand and give like minded artists the opportunity of uploading and sharing their texture related work here on this platform.
Nearly all of the images currently listed under Goodtextures have been photographed by myself and later edited in Photoshop. Almost all of the images are presented in the industry standard 'JPEG' format.
I come from a CG related background and have been working as an Environment Artist for many a year now. The technology and advancements in recent years have been enormous, especially when using fantastic programs such as Z-Brush or Substance Painter/Designer. The way in which textures are created and used has also changed dramatically. That is why I have created a PBR material category which offers materials for use in Substance Painter or any 3D / Game engine software. These materials can be downloaded without having to register to the goodtextures site :)
On a last note. I hope you like the new website and can find something useful here to help you with your work or project.
Should anyone have any suggestions for the development and improvement of this site, or just want to say hello, please do not hesitate to get in touch here
