Multi Seamless Textures: Sample Pack 1

 A texture pack created from sampled photos. The result of photographing, editing to remove repeating seams, and testing in Blender. The aim is to improve the process and quality to bring more realism into 3d renderings. These textures may help to prototype and blend materials for modeling.

Next: develop a texture demo scene using this pack.

Stairway Railing - Seamless textures

Modular stairwell, railing system. Built in blender. Work in progress.

Various railing segments based on some industrial photo reference. Most important, is segment size, and origin location so the pieces snap together without gaps. After testing, it becomes apparent that more segment sizes are needed for more flexibility. 

Various section sizes and bend types, conforming to metric grid.

Modular Building

 This 3d modular set based on photos of a historical building established in 1872 as a hotel in Schoolcraft, Michigan. It was turned into a bar and apartments at some point and has been known as "Buds Bar" ever since I have known about it.

This set started with my interest in the amazing colorful peeling brick texture. 

Peeling brick surface.

After researching a bit, it seems this structure had an upper floor and peaked roof with tower. I decided to map out the original construction in this set.

The stitched photo shows repeating elements that will be needed. Sizes are adapted to a metric grid so it is easy to assemble by using grid snap.

Albums Compiled for 2022

7 New Albums Compiled for 2022

Many of my sound compositions on Bandcamp have been waiting in draft form for several years. I stopped development and dedicated a week to locate, adjust, and add tracks to new albums, as well as create nifty graphics for each. There are quite a variety of sounds to absorb, and all are available to listen to and buy.

Feel free to browse the tracks here and see what strikes your interest.

The genres mainly are in the form of electronic experimental, ambient, smooth-jazz or funk, drum & bass, and low tempo chill out type.

Please enjoy and purchase a track or two if you like.
Thanks!
