This is what I've been doing...

for fun.



I've been taking pictures of scenery and of the dog and two cats.  Most of the time, I use part of the photos I take in creating textures which are like backgrounds that I used to create for e-stats.




This texture is part of a set or fatpack that I made.  Each fatpack has a name that I give it.  Each texture within a fatpack also has a number related to when I took the photograph and some other information.  This texture used to be part of a photo.
I work on things like this almost every day.  Creating textures from my photographs makes me happy.  What I do is that I select part of a photograph in my collection of photos that I've taken and cut it.  Then I modify it, either stretching it to fill a 512 x 512 space or possibly adding an alpha texture if I want some transparency.  Once I get it looking the way I want it to, then I continue to play with settings until I get some different colors and effects that I like.

[As usual, all rights reserved on these two samples of my work.  Please play nice and don't claim them as  yours.  Originals are stored safely on my hard drive and a few other places.  And of course no hot-linking.
 Blah blah blah].

I have a ton of photos that I've taken with my simple point-and-shoot digital camera over the past six years or so.  And even more textures that I've created from pieces of my photos.

So now you know a bit of what I've been doing.

A few pics have been posted on my blogspot blogs and more will be posted there soon.
