Harper 009: Black & White Texture Grab Bag #2 (icon-sized)  

Hey y'all,

I'm finally beginning to catch up on posting my backlog of textures, and I decided to start out of order with my 9th texture set because it's the one that's been the most fun to make.  There are 43 unique textures in this batch, along with 4 black-and-white versions of textures in set 8 that I made for [info]innocent_lexys's texture battle a while back and 2 variations of other textures in this post.  Related notes and credit are at the bottom of this post

Anyway, on to the textures, and I hope you guys find them at least marginally useful :)

stay cool,

Download the whole set HERE
View and save individual textures HERE.   


Individual Textures, of which there are 51:


Texture battle credit: the following textures were made with screencaps provided by the following fabulous makers for [info]innocent_lexys's texture battle:
texture #1, 1st row: [info]my_innersanctum
texture #2, 2nd-to-last row: [info]apologizeg
texture #3, 2nd-to-last row: [info]antoinettemason
texture #4, 2nd-to-last row: [info]vetica
texture #1, last row: [info]apologizeg

There are more texture battle textures to come with the next batches.  Everyone provided such beautiful resources.

Oh, and for today's mostly off-topic question, I've heard some people prefer not getting textures from DeviantArt.  Does anyone know why this is?  (Depending on the reason, I might post these on box.com, mediafire or similar as well.)

These look amazing, definitely snagging with credit ^^ Can't wait to use the first two, and 11 and everything!
Ooh and there's more to come? Yay!!

Also I definitely like DA downloading, cause it doesn't spam me with pop up ads.

Thank you!!! I am so glad to know I'm not alone on that! I love DA. It's so convenient to be able to surf through textures, plus it's so easy for actual posting. Thanks for sticking with my camp in this one, especially as a fellow CS person. Of everyone on my flist, you're one of the first whose judgment on online organization and site selection I'd trust.

Also, thank you SO MUCH for mentioning specific textures you can't wait to use. That kind of info helps me so much as a texture maker to learn what texture attributes are most helpful. I LOVE shapes and stripes and checker and stripe patterns, and I'm glad to know you like that type too.

And YES, there is more to come, which I am quite excited about. I was about to post it before I realized how many comments I had rudely neglected.

Took almost ALL of them. I'm a real fan of the ones that have really distinct pieces of white in them (7, 9, 11, 12, 15, 17, 24, 25). Will def credit. :)
Harperhappy_harper13 on May 13th, 2012 05:28 am (UTC)
Thanks so much!!!! Hmm, from your last post and previous comments and such, I might have gotten the impression that you did indeed like really distinct white pieces in textures ;P (That was an attempt at kind sarcasm... (does that even exist?))

Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by and for your all-around awesome support and encouragement. Naming the specific texture numbers, let alone when I hadn't even bothered to number them in the first place, was SO RIDICULOUSLY NICE AND AWESOME, and I really, really appreciate it.

I didn't include numbers because I figured nobody would actually be so ridiculously awesome as to list specific textures, but you and john-scorpy have already proven me wrong on that with your kindness. I think I'm gonna have to add some more distinct white pieces to my next new set. (I'm about to post another one, which may have some large white pieces, but I should probably let you judge for yourself as it doesn't seem like there's quite as much of those pieces.)

Anyway, thanks so much! Hope all's going well with you! I saw your journal post and have been meaning to respond all day.

These look really great, thanks!
Harperhappy_harper13 on May 13th, 2012 05:11 am (UTC)
You are so welcome. Thank you so much for your kind words ;) They mean a lot to me, and I hope the textures prove themselves useful (and, more importantly, fun to use) to you.

these are great! thanks so much.
Harperhappy_harper13 on May 13th, 2012 05:08 am (UTC)
No problem at all! I had a blast making these, and I really hope you find them fun to use too :)

Lately I'm so in B&W mood since the challenge at 20inspiration and I'll definitely download them *.* :D

Me too! I didn't even finish my claim, but the black and white fairy totally got me too. I don't know how, but I didn't see your claim before for it. I must go check it out now.

wow, these look awesome! I made a download, and added you to my resource list. I love black&white, I`m sure I`ll have a lot of fun with these ;D

btw, I love DeviantArt. That`s my happy place, when it comes with textures and such things. I had a Deviant account myself, a looong time ago, but not anymore. But still, I always point friends towards DeviantArt, if asked about THE place to get textures.
Harperhappy_harper13 on June 3rd, 2012 03:58 am (UTC)
Thanks so much! It's really reassuring to see another DeviantArt lover :) So many of my favorite textures are from there. You are so right about it being THE place to get them. And I hope you have lots and lots of fun with these, maybe even as much fun as I had making them :D

Btw, I love your userpic.
