January 2012 Texture Sets 1 and 2

January 2012 Texture Sets 1 and 2

January's texture sets 1 and 2 each contain thirteen exceptionally large textures, of various sizes,
styles and colors.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and may the new year bring joy, peace and happiness
to you and yours.

Sorry it took so long to post, but I felt I would enjoy the holidays with family and friends and then
take some personal time to kick back and do nothing. LOL!

Actually I've been trying my best to learn or should I say attempt to learn working with my Wacom
Create Pen and Touch pad I received for Christmas .............. I can see this will take some time to learn.

Anyone with a tip, trick, tutorial or link to help further my slow moving pursuit, I would be very grateful.

Thanks so much. Good luck learning the Wacom, I gave up about 3 years ago.

Many thanks and a joyful, peaceful and healthy 2012 to you. I'm still persevering with my Wacom too, they do take some getting used to.

These are just lovely, and I really like the postcard ones especially. Thank-you so much and wishing you a happy and enjoyable year ahead.

Thank you so much for sharing. These textures are almost works of art on their own.

I wish you all the best in 2012 as well.

As for tips and tricks goes... the only thing I have amongst my bookmarks is this - http://fox-orian.deviantart.com/art/Wacom-Starter-s-Guide-2011-189976186

and I think it's worth a lot. The rest is patience and practice of course :)

Jessica Sprague has some Wacom classes. I have not taken those, but the classes I've taken were great. Also, do you know about Pen Scrappers? That is a site supported by Wacom that has some tutorials.



It is a very cool tool - I am certain that you will make great use of it.

arrowhead said...

I love your creations, you're so talented. Thanks a bunch!

CathWren said...

Don't give up on the Wacom. I use it daily and it has not only saved my wrist, but I can't imagine ever using the cumbersome mouse again. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and your textures!

karenkr said...

Thank you, Jerry. I know I'll be able to put these to good use.

I have used my Wacom twice since I got it last summer, so I don't have any tips, but I hope you have fun with it. Keep us updated on your experiences with it.

Paula Leigh said...

Happy New Year, Jerry! Thank you for these beautiful new textures.

I have no doubt that you'll soon be producing many amazing images with the use of your new toy.

Buffy Marie said...

Beautiful job... as always!

The biggest tip I have for the Wacom- forget it's a tablet. Really. As soon as I stopped panicking about the new equipment & everything I had to learn to use it- it got a LOT easier.
Use it as often as you can- not just for art. Soon enough, it begins to feel more like an extension than just another tool.
I love mine & I finally relaxed enough (2 months in!) to let it teach me how to use it. My art is better for it... so don't' give up!

All the best to you!

Thank you! I have a Wacom tablet, but mostly just use it as a mouse and mousepad! Hope you had a great holiday!

suruha said...

Ah, another awesome set of your textures and masks. You are amazing! I sure thank you!

Thank you, Jerry! I continue to be inspired by the generosity of texture artists like you. Have a fantastic 2012!

Raquel Sánchez said...

Thank you again Jerry, for the much fun I have had for the last 2 years, since I found you in Flickr for the first time. Your textures opened a new amazing world of possibilities to a new amateur photographer like me.

I have found your blog today, and I'm already a follower.

Amalia Ferreira said...

Thank you so much for making these great textures and the other goodies available to us!

You're amazing.


Joy Gerow said...

When you generously share your beautiful textures you enhance the artwork of others around the world. Thank you for spreading the love my friend. You are valued and admired.
Your textures are amazing and so are you!
All the best for this new year in creativity, life, love and happiness!
Cheers, Joy

Joy Gerow said...

Forgot to add, I have a Wacom Intuos4 tablet with pen. Not a touch screen but they work a lot alike. I found any help I need I can get through Wacoms own website or through NAPP and Adobe ... they have great links too.
It takes some getting used to but once you start using the pen more than your mouse ... you know you're on a roll.
Cheers, Joy

Courtney said...

I gave up using the Intuos Wacom. I tried and tried, but it just doesn't give me the control as I would like. I went back to my roots and am drawing by hand and scanning my images in that way. I know...I'm no help :)
