It is safe to say that nothing in this world remains untouched by Time or Weather.
As a constant reminder of Impermanence, Time is ageing, weathering, distressing things and beings, giving them an identity and an history, marking them up with details.
Details make things unique and therefore beautiful.
And uniqueness calls variations.
So, here are varieties of walls with life stigmata features. Some are hard beaten, some are softly faded.
Although, like in real life, categories doesn't have a real meaning -they're made to make us feel secure-, and after solving vital dilemmas like: should painted bricks go in brick or in paint ?, I've ordered, subjectively, the 325 walls, more or less, according the game categories:
- Bricks (40), Masonry (30), Siding (60), Poured (45), Paint (40), Wallpaper (65), Tiles (20), Wood (25).
Some series are seamless (at least horizontally), each panel can be placed in any order and match the others. Price: 7Â§.
Some series needs to be placed in a particular order to match and keep the continuity, like a strip. Price: 5Â§.
Here and there you will find some clean and untouched wall. Price: 7Â§.
All series are Mac friendly.
Hopefully, package naming is comprehensible... In order to prevent nervous breakdown caused by searching the matching wall, a collection file is provided with each categories.
I've tried to personalise almost each panel by collage and other deconstruction/reconstruction and with all the possible tricks I've learned all these years. Home-made drawn material, personal photos, tweaked computer generated textures have also been used.
Nothing "artistic" here. I torture pixels through software attempting to bring realism in a virtual world I use to escape Reality.
Some of these may look familiar as I don't know all the walls created worldwide. Sources used are free and some are coming from well known websites:
, Arroway Textures
, Animax Turbo squid
This set was originally bigger (+400 walls) but rejected because of use of other game textures and the deficiency of authorizations.
I've pruned it from all the files coming from other game textures or those without proof of "free to use" or from unsure origin.
I've made and modified those for myself but I'm glad to share them, while all credits goes to their original creators, I'm unable to name them.
You'll find the additional walls(78) here.
None of them are pictured here. Have them for your personal use.
From the bottom of my heart, a huge THANKS to anyone who consider me as one of their favourite creator, have taken the time to comment or pushed the fuzzy-feeling thanks button during all these years.
I'm honoured every time One is using my stuff for One's pleasure...
