Actually insane that this is so cheap. Very unique and high-quality stuff.
Triumphant Artists Complete Collection 2018
A downloadable asset pack
Over the six years from 2012-2018 I was steadily building a vast personal collection of unique stock textures and video elements. The result, as once seen on one of my websites (TriumphantArtists.com) is an impressive assortment of materials useful to indie vfx and game artists, including:
- over a thousand total texture files, including normal, bump, specular and opacity maps, which could prove very useful for 3d artists and game developers.
These were - as of March 2020 - improved a bit more, with about 150 additional photographic texture maps in development between this and the Autumn bonus pack, and some assorted adjustments to the existing maps.
-A batch of decals to make surfaces look more messy, grungy, and realistically detailed, plus a few overlays like dust, lens flares, water, etc, that can be layered over images or video with an 'add' or 'screen' filter. This decal material is, incidentally, also my first submission to the Unity Asset Store (just very recently, as in a couple of days ago, not yet approved / available there)
-Over a hundred video clips, some SD, many in HD, often shot at 60 or 120fps high-speed and most of them easy for VFX artists to composite due to black or blue backing. The types of video elements include debris bursts, water effects, smoke, fire, and a bunch of explosions. Nearly all of this is actual physical effects work, shot for real. Only a few of the video elements included are 3d simulation, and they're separated in different subfolders than the real-world photographed effects. A few additional 3d simulated elements may be added at some point soon too, here and in the Autumn bonus pack.
[Other notes - the files are all in folders, that have been zipped together into one massive .ZIP file in an attempt to make downloading simpler.]
There is a ton of material here you may find useful.
Plus, you would be helping me not only keep my web presence fully afloat but also helping fund completion and release of my new indie game projects like Miniature Multiverse so that is enormously appreciated. Ratings, comments, shares on social media, and reviews would also be wonderful. :)
Bottom line - if you are a visual effects artist, 3d artist, or video-game artist, you will find this collection extremely useful and an exceptional bargain at the current price, about $2 and less than that when on sale. Better still, by buying this you'll be helping to fund indie game productions that I'm currently working hard to launch. [Check my username if you're interested in browsing my other projects - I'd appreciate that.]
The standard price for this collection used to be $1.50. But inflation and Paypal's August 2021 fee increases - most buyers still use them and not Stripe - are pushing me to raise pricing a bit across all product lines just to keep revenue about the same. Sorry about that.
Notes on usage: You can add the textures to your models and use them in your own 3d renders, video VFX sequences, video game levels. You can make VFX shots and cutscenes using the video clips. All of that, royalty-free, too, with no need to credit me. If you like this, though, I'd appreciate a comment or review here on Itch.IO.
Also, know that I will use almost any holiday as a time to enact a major sale, usually about 8-10 times per year (often including New Year's, Valentine's Day, St. Patricks' Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas)... so if you can show up during one of those sales, you can often find a massive bundle deal with all my paid items for, often, still around a single dollar ($1 USD) which is a pretty amazing price for thousands of texture files, decals, and overlays, hundreds of video elements and hundreds of 3d assets!
Next major sale date: Labor Day 2021.
PLEASE RATE OR REVIEW IF YOU LIKE THIS:
Also, as usual, if you buy this, or anything else I'm offering here, I and everybody else browsing these pages, would appreciate it if you would please post an honest review, criticisms, suggestions and all, after buying. Reviews and star ratings and other forms of feedback like comments, are super helpful. I've sold over 30 items on Itch.IO so far but have yet to see a single complete star rating or review, just a brief happy comment on one of my first asset packs. Look, I do get that many of you would only be likely to post a response to a product that either provoked a strong negative reaction, or seemed like an 'important' or major purchase. A tiny - even forgettable - impulse-buy price, combined with a good but not outright incredible set of contents, might not seem to be worth posting a review about. But I encourage you to post one nonetheless. Positive or not, honest reviews do help others assess the value, the strengths and shortcomings of a product. So for the customers' sake, and mine, I'd really like more response to what I have here. The more this material takes off, the more I can continue to improve on it. Any review or comment will be useful to me, so I know what I'm doing well and what still needs improvement.
If you're logged into Itch.IO you can rate this asset pack or add it to a collection for later, i.e. wishlisting, on the top right edge of the browser window. Or you can comment, at the bottom of this page.
COMMENTS & REQUESTS WELCOMED:
So, yes, I hope to hear some responses from all of you. Those responses have an impact! If, for example, I'm seeing a number of people all requesting a certain type of texture, 3d object, or video VFX element I may make that a priority in later updates. So I WILL respond to your feedback as much as I reasonably can. I welcome your replies.
A BIG THANK YOU to the people who have already purchased, some of you even tipped! THANK YOU!
