six papers by hibbary six papers by hibbary
Download the zip for the full sizes.

Some new paper textures to share. I'm afraid that some of them I abused more than I meant to and they developed some parallel lines, for good or for ill.

You can use these for personal work, commissions, prints, etc. Anything you like.

They're all watercolor. The top and bottom two are made with table salt. the three in the middle are made by dripping watercolor through soap bubbles. A friendly furry chap told me about this technique at FWA and I thought I'd give it a try. Veeeeeeeery interesting!

Edit: A few people have asked about the bubbles, so I'm gonna copy/paste one of my replies here for all to read:

you get some dish detergent in a big bowl or basin and let water run into it so that you get very thick, dry bubbles. Like bubble bath. Then you scoop the bubbles up, lay them down on your paper, and drip the watercolor into them. Then you just let it all dry.

I don't know if I'd said this previously. Even if I have, it bears repeating! I wanted to thank you for uploading these and the other textures for everyone to use. I use them semi-frequently in my artwork and they're very helpful to give my art that little boost that I'm not quite yet capable enough to achieve on my own. I may start trying to make my own textures soon and stop being a lazy mooch. :D

ANYWAY, again, I just wanted to thank you very much.

Are your textures like okay for commerical usage (I have no idea how to phrase what I'm asking)
Example: if I needed a texture for a picture I have drawn and I intended to sell it at a convention would these be the kind of textures I could use for free? Or do I need to start making my own?
