Well, I must say, GoMedia has done it again. This time they have done it with spray paint. If you have ever looked for quality images of spray paint textures, you know there is a lack of good ones out there. The ones that you do find are either low quality, strictly a Photoshop brush, low resolution, or just plain ugly. Once GoMedia got wind of this, they set out to make things right. Working with some local artists, they created a set of spray paint textures that have none of the above mentioned characteristics. No sir, these images are hi res and just over all awesome.
Check out the Spray Paint Textures
Do a Google search for “Spray paint textures” and you’ll see why knew that the artistic community deserved better.
So, we brought in a well-known graffiti artist from right here in Cleveland to show us what he could do. And, well, we were mightily impressed!
Our graffiti artist had the supplies, technique, and experience to create incredible blended tones & texture. He quickly laid down a base of colors and then slowly added layers. By the time he got to the topmost layer, he was practically placing each drop individually! His control & detail was pretty amazing.
Really, it’s kind of like having your own personal Jackson Pollock at hand. To finish off each texture, he feathered the edges with white spray paint to achieve a natural splattered fade.
I’m happy with what we came up with, and I’ve already used the textures a few times. I like that these spray paint textures can be used without calling attention to themselves. With simple tools like Photoshop’s brightness/contrast and hue shift/saturation, the versatility is pretty impressive. Try blending these into any design that needs a more traditional, naturalistic, urban feel.
As a special gift to you, we were lucky enough to get two free samples of the pack to give away on Outlaw Design Blog. You can see smaller versions of the included samples below. These images don’t do the textures justice. The original files are 300dpi and huge! You can download them below:
