Yes. I would love to see your talent.
if u make free premades with any of my stock, I would hope to see other dA members using it, without restriction. BUT I leave it up to you.
If u r selling your premades then obviously do whatever u need to.
* Rule/request: please dont repost as stock in raw form
PS: Though not required, I would LOVE to see what you create with this. People have been coming up with some amazing art!
Edit: Could someone please be kind enough to tell me why they like this texture. Personally I don't and would never download it or use it in my manipulations.
But it is the most faved, downloaded and used texture in my gallery. As I want to make truly useful textures for the community, it would really help to know what makes this special. I would be most grateful for any input.
and since you asked... I personally am drawn towards textures that have something rough and edgy about them. I don't care about the color because that can easily be adjusted. There is something dynamic in the scratches that I really like. Does that help you at all?
It has perfect imbalance. If you think about the art principle of "divine proportion (or golden ratio)" it matches that really well. The viewers eye is drawn by the curve in the upper right and that's one place that it should/could be drawn. The hint of blue also adds dimension/depth. Also notice in the upper right how the bottom curve is complimented by the opposite and understated curve above it. It also looks very random which adds to its appeal.
