TV noise textures
Introducing The Shop's newest set of assets: the TV noise textures.

I got inspired by an old CRT TV set I recently put my hands on. I grabbed my trusted DSLR (Nikon D60), and started snapping photographs of the static patterns.

The resulting sixty-six (66!) images were lightly processed in Camera RAW (lens distortion, color correction, and straightening), for a giant collection of static motifs. The textures feature the noise seen from a typical viewing distance, from up close (revealing the mask), and from the side.

The images are on average 3789x2481 pixels in size @ 300 ppi. They will work wonders as noise textures (explore with overlay and soft light), or as stand-alone backgrounds.

You can see more details in the attachments, including two 100% zoom crops.

Oh, and you can see a high resolution gif of the static. It's either rather calming, or totally headache inducing, depending of your sensibilities.

You should grab these now, from my creative Market store.

Until next time, cheers!

Photocopy noise textures - 2017 update!
These six textures have been lovingly crafted with an old laser copier with an increasingly faulty drum and toner combo, and a flat-bed scanner.

Each textures are scans of individual prints of a black document. They each have subtle variations in the dust and noise patterns, making them unique. The last texture of the set was the last print the drum and toner agreed to generate before giving up.

Each images are around 4750x6300 pixels @ 600 ppi.

Noise and dust textures are perfect to add a subtle depth to your designs. Using them is very simple: just switch your layer's blending mode to "Screen," and play with the opacity slider.

---

Now updated with transparent PNGs (ideal to quickly add in a design, and to color them using a color overlay), and bitmap TIFFs (perfect to use in Illustrator for great, detailed texture effects without hogging down your system resources).

---
What's included in your download:

- Six (6) raster textures of toner noise and dust
- Roughly 4750x6300 pixels @ 600 ppi
- Bonus: negative versions
- Bonus: transparent PNG versions
- Bonus: bitmap TIFF format for lllustrator

Hand-drawn vector map patterns

Let me introduce you to the Shop's hand-drawn vector map patterns: crmrkt.com/XEjljy

These twenty (20) set of intricate line patterns were created to mimic the topography line found on maps, architectural drawings, etc.

Each pattern was drawn with care, using a Pentel Sign pen, on white paper. These drawings were then scanned in at 600 ppi, carefully cleaned up, and turned into vector assets.

In addition, high resolution transparent PNGs, and bitmap TIFFs versions are included. The PNG versions in particular transcribe transparency variation in the inking work. The TIFF versions feature high density halftone patterns, to make for nice line definition.


What's included in your download:

  • Twenty (20) hand-drawn vector map patterns (Ai, PDF, EPS)
  • Twenty (20) transparent PNG versions (~4,930x6,300 pixels @ 600 ppi)
  • Twenty (20) bitmap TIFF versions (~4,930x6,300 pixels @ 300 ppi)

36 hand-drawn burst elements

Introducing The Shop's hand-drawn burst vector elements, volume two: crmrkt.com/W9eQW

These 36 unique bursts have been carefully traced on paper with a Pentel Sign Pen.

This second volume of bursts has been designed around elements fitting geometrical shapes: circles, ellipses, triangles, squares, pentagons, etc.

After being scanned at 600 ppi, each of the bursts have been cleaned up, and digitized very precisely in Illustrator. Additionally, bitmap TIFF and PNG files were generated.


What's included in your download:

  • 36 hand-drawn bursts
  • Vector format (Ai CC, Ai CS6, EPS, and PDF) of all bursts on one big artboard
  • Vector format (Ai CC, Ai CS6, EPS, and PDF) of all bursts on separated artboards (15"x15")
  • Bitmap TIFF files
  • PNG files (4500x4500 pixels @ 300 ppi)

Black ink wash textures

Introducing the results of The Shop's most recent play session with black ink and paper: the black ink wash textures: crmrkt.com/mN8py

This pack includes a series of 12 black ink wash textures, featuring various types of brush patterns (diluted, heavy, subtle, intense, etc.).

After scanning the textures in at very high resolution, they are processed to fit a canvas roughly equivalent to 18"x24" @ 300 ppi. Other than resizing the textures, the editing process includes light color corrections, and straightening.

Additionally, the set also includes a version of the textures post-processed with an HDR-like feel to them. This second set transcends the various artifacts of each texture, and showcases an out of the ordinary level of details. The downside of that alternative editing process is that in some cases, the results are over the top.

Since I couldn't decide between the two, I decided to share them both as part of the product!


  • Twelves (12) ink wash textures
  • Two different editing styles, so twenty-four (24) textures total
  • ~18"x24" @ 300 ppi (above 5400x7200 pixels)

28 hand-drawn burst elements
Introducing The Shop's hand-drawn burst vector elements!

These unique bursts have been carefully traced on paper with a Pentel Sign Pen, sometimes using a few guides as a reference, sometimes not.

Most elements are circular, some are contained within other geometrical shapes (pentagon, hexagon, inverted star). Most of the burst elements are centered, some aren't.

After being scanned at 600 ppi, each of the bursts have been cleaned up, and digitized very precisely in Illustrator. Additionally, bitmap TIFF and PNG files were generated.

What's included in your download:
- 28 hand-drawn bursts
- Vector format (Ai CC, Ai CS6, EPS, and PDF) of all bursts on one big artboard
- Vector format (Ai CC, Ai CS6, EPS, and PDF) of all bursts on separated artboards (12"x12")
- Bitmap TIFF files
- PNG files (3600x3600 pixels @ 300 ppi)

Small bonus: all the color palettes have been sourced from mid-century modern adverts and packaging pieces - feel free to re-use them for your own projects.

One more thing: like the grit you see in the preview images? It's generated with my photocopy noise textures volume 02.

Gemstone cutting pattern volume 02
Introducing the gemstone cutting pattern vector elements, volume 02!

Forty-three shapes (43) of gem goodness have been reproduced manually, line per line, from an illustration plate taken from a late 1800s book about gems cutting.

They provide beautiful, and sometimes intricate, line work overlays for photos, but can also be center pieces in their own right. Another application would be hidden as a smaller icon within a bigger composition.

The pack includes three versions of the gems:
- Stroked shapes (ideal to add your own brushes to them)
- Clean compound shapes
- Aged compound shapes

The vector files themselves come in multiple versions:
- Illustrator CC
- Illustrator CS6
- Illustrator CS3
- Illustrator CS
- EPS (CS, single and multiple files)
- PDF

Each gem also comes in high resolution PNGs (roughly 12"x12" @ 300 dpi):
- Clean
- Aged

Did you know that this pack has a little brother?
- Gemstone cutting pattern volume 01: crmrkt.com/GE7Pb
- Gemstone cutting pattern volume 02: crmrkt.com/emNak

Final note: the noise textures are sold separately, and you can find them at the links below:

Photocopy noise textures volume 02
The Shop is proud to introduce the little brother to its most popular product, the photocopy noise texture pack, volume 02!

Each of the ten (10) original textures were obtained by printing a black sheet through a laser copier of questionable quality, and then mistreating them with various scratching, folding, and rubbing techniques.

After that, the textures were scanned in at 1,200 ppi, slightly adjusted for even lighting in Photoshop, and then converted to 18"x24" @ 300 ppi documents. They are crisp as a winter morning.

Each texture is available in a positive (mostly black), and negative (mostly white) version.

Additionally, I decided to provide each textures as transparent PNGs (ideal to quickly add in a design, and to color them using a color overlay), and bitmap TIFFs (perfect to use in Illustrator for great, detailed texture effects without hogging down your system resources).

Noise and dust textures are perfect to add a subtle depth to your designs. Using them is very simple: just switch your layer's blending mode to "Screen," and play with the opacity slider.

- Ten (10) raster textures of toner noise and dust
- Sized to fit an 18"x24" canvas @ 300 ppi
- Bonus: negative versions
- Bonus: transparent PNG versions (download link included in product archive)
- Bonus: bitmap TIFF format for llustrator
