  1. Building a Free Library of Images for Everyone

    Greetings! This week’s new seamless textures are on the following pages: TXR - GROUND Some cool new ground cover textures. https://soundimage.org/txr-ground/ TXR – SCI-FI These could be used for all kinds of things I’m sure. https://soundimage.org/txr-sci-fi/ (Make sure to scroll down for seamless textures.) I hope everyone had a good weekend!
  2. Hi everyone, I've been building a library of images that you are welcome to freely use in your projects. They are all original...all my own work. I think a lot of them could be made into cool textures for games. All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage: http://soundimage.org/ The images are on my "TXR" pages. I'm adding new ones all the time, so be sure to check back often. I sincerely hope that some of them are useful. Any and all constructive feedback is welcome and always appreciated. :-) All the best, Eric

Feel free to friend me on Facebook to get daily updates in your news feed. My page is here: https://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Matyas/100017638394276 Finally, if you need some affordable custom work created (music, sound effects, images, etc.,) feel free to email me.

  4. Hi everyone, I've got a site up with free music that you can use in commerical projects, non-commercial, personal, whatever you like. It's all original...all my own stuff...all I ask is to be credited as indicated on my homepage. http://soundimage.org/ I'm also on Twitter so be sure to follow me for more frequent updates.

    Hey guys, I’m a bit under the weather, but I did manage to get a couple of new tracks done: On my Dark/Ominous 2 page: MIDNIGHT FOG – (Looping) – What creeps though the fog? This track might go well with my other one, “Midnight Mist.” https://soundimage.org/dark-ominous-2/ On my Nature/Science 3 page: DEEP SKY OBJECTS – They shimmer silently in the night sky like ancient jewels. Most can only be seen with a telescope. The light passing through my lens and into my eye left these objects long before humans walked the Earth. Perspective is humbling. https://soundimage.org/nature-science-3/ Like all of my music, they are completely free to use with attribution. Enjoy!

    Greetings, I’ve decided to begin expanding the sound effects section of my website (which desperately needs it) so if anyone has any requests, just let me know. One request that I received on social media is for various coin sounds, so here’s a brand new page devoted to that: SFX - Coins https://soundimage.org/sfx-coins/ As always, feel free to edit as needed. Enjoy!

    Hey there, I’ve posted some more wild cartoon-style texture images derived from glass objects: TXR – GLASS – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-glass-cartoon/ As always, please remember that they are meant to be building blocks rather than polished textures, so feel free to edit / alter / mash / etc., as needed. Don’t forget to check out my learning series that teaches environmental responsibility in a fun way through stories and characters. The premise is this: How can we expect children to be the future stewards of the Earth if they don’t feel connected to it?? Please share with family, friends, teachers or anyone who might find it useful. https://soundimage.org/dunes-island/ Have a good week!
  21. Free Music Resource - Over 1800 Tracks

    Greetings Earth People, This week’s new music tracks are: On my Sci-Fi 7 page: "INVASION!" – They’re heading this way! Run for your life! Aliens? Zombies? Slimy monsters? Something else entirely? https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-7/ On my Funny 6 page: “PARTY GHOULS” - Rockin’ it in their haunted party mansion. This track might be fun in a goofy Halloween-themed game or something like that. https://soundimage.org/funny-6/ And two tracks on my Positive / Upbeat page: "OF SUMMERS GONE BY" – Here’s a high energy 80’s-style piece with a sweet, slightly magical feel that might sound nice in a game, video or perhaps something else. CAREFREE DAYS AT PELICAN SHORES – Carefree and creative…bouncing around town without a worry in the world. Wouldn’t that be great? https://soundimage.org/positive-upbeat/ All are free to use, as always, with attribution. If anyone has kids or younger siblings, I've created a fun environmental learning series that (I hope) will engage them through stories and characters. The organization I made it for uses the films all the time, and I'm sharing them with the rest of the world. Please feel free to check them out and share with friends, parents, teachers or anyone else who might find them helpful. https://soundimage.org/dunes-island/ Keep being creative and have a good weekend!

    Greetings fellow creatives, I’ve posted new cartoon-style texture images here: TXR – GLASS – Cartoon Some wild textures here… https://soundimage.org/txr-glass-cartoon/ TXR – METAL – Cartoon Some dirty metal textures… https://soundimage.org/txr-metal-cartoon/ TXR – ROCK/STONE – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-cartoon/ Please keep in mind that they are meant to be building blocks rather than polished textures, so feel free to edit / alter / mash / etc., as needed. Btw, if you happen to have kids (or know someone who does) I’ve created a learning series that teaches them environmental stewardship in a fun way through stories and characters. It was my first try at making films with a DSLR…(they can be very challenging to work with in the field)…but I think they came out pretty well. The organization I made them for was very happy with them and uses the films all the time…hopefully others can benefit from them as well. Please feel free to share with family, friends, teachers or anyone you know who might find them useful. https://soundimage.org/dunes-island/ Enjoy!
  23. Free 2D Game Art for Your Projects

    Hey guys, More experiments with various game art styles. I’ve got some pixel art-style map templates here: ART- MAP TEMPLATES https://soundimage.org/art-map-templates/ You’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the page. It was suggested to me that they might also be useful as backgrounds. Feel free to edit and modify as needed.

  24. Hi everyone, I’ve begun creating 2D game art that you are welcome to freely use in your projects. Some is pixel art, some is derived from 3D objects that I created, and others are backgrounds that might be useful in visual novels and interactive fiction. You’ll find them on my new “ART” pages on my website: http://soundimage.org The art pages are located at the bottom of the menu list on the right side of the screen. At this point I’m experimenting with different styles and methods so hopefully I will be able to offer a good variety of things. Please feel free to modify / edit as needed. If you happen to find any of these images helpful and decide to use them, please attribute me in the “game art” section of your credits area. Enjoy!

Free as always to use with attribution: On my Horror/Surreal page, we have: CREEPY ACTION – (Looping) – This track might sound cool in a quick moving horror game…or perhaps something else that combines action with creepiness. It came out pretty well…if you need something like this, give it a try. https://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/ On my Puzzle Music 4 page: CRYSTAL PUZZLES – (Looping) – This track might sound nice in, well, a puzzle game involving crystals….or perhaps other shimmering objects, light rays, etc. It has a techno feel to it as well. Should sound pretty cool under sound fx. https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/ Btw, if anyone happens to have kids (or know someone who does) I’ve created a learning series that teaches them environmental stewardship in a fun way through stories and characters.
