alika Mar 04 2009

Awesome resources.

Black Sand Mar 04 2009

I loved “Denim Texture 05”. It’s cool.. Thanks

Very cool, but GPL isn’t really the appropriate license for these. Maybe a creative commons one or something more art/media-friendly?

GPL imposes some things on derivative works, and is more oriented to software development.

Firestorm Mar 04 2009

cool textures. thanks!

i like #9.

Jacob Gube Mar 04 2009

@Pete: You’re right, GPL is used primarily for software, but it can also be used, and I quote, for “[…] other kinds of works”.

Creative Commons would’ve been a good option except that all types of CC licenses require the user to attribute the work to the source, which we’re not requiring you to do. In cases where you want to use the textures on a background of a piece of artwork or print work, we don’t require you to state: “background texture by Six Revisions”.

Thanks for bringing this up and I’ll have to look at more appropriate options in later releases.

Steven Lewis Mar 04 2009

This awseome for the design guys over at Wrangler! :)

Denim Texture 13 is nice – looks like a prostate or bladder problem. :-)


Thanks. My concern for art is the GPL typically requires that any derivatives *also* be GPL’d. The latest rev makes that a little softer in that you can convey other permissions, but it is still typically interpreted that way.

Still love the textures and your site :)

This is great! Thank you for sharing….

Jacob Gube Mar 05 2009

@Pete : In any event, I appreciate that you took the time to leave a comment to help out. I’ve been looking and there really isn’t a perfect copyleft license for what I’d like to release them in, so from now on, I will just plainly state the stipulations of how you can use these, which is basically: free for any personal and commercial use with the exception of redistributing the work “as-is” without attribution or written consent.

can you do a set with duct tape or gaffers tape
