Crumble, Crackle, Burn by Von Glitschka is set to be released later this month. I am so looking forward to getting my hands on this book. I love the idea behind it…Von has put together a team of artists and given them each a different texture. Each “spread” in the book features a picture of the texture, and the illustration that utilizes it. As a bonus, the book will also come with a DVD of the texture files in high resolution so you can use them in your own work.
To feed your appetite until then, here are some great texture links for you:
- My texture tutorial:
Texture: How to Make Better Art with Jelly Beans
- Von’s texture tutorials, featured on IllustrationClass.com:
- Another texture book:
Digital Texturing and Painting by Owen Demers
- Great source for free, hi-res textures on the web:
Mayang’s Free Textures
Update: Von has emailed me to let me know that those who purchase the book and email him a copy of the receipt can also receive a DVD with 30 additional textures! Also, keep an eye on texturebook.com, which will soon have more information about the book.
