The object of these articles are to help you familiarize yourself with the vast selection of resources that are available within the Resources gallery. The resource gallery is a hive of activity and has much to offer to help in your creative processes and genre. We are so lucky to have such a large and diverse selection ranging from  3D,Clipart,Film Resources, Fonts, Fractal, textures, literature templates, tutorials and  Vector together with many Application Resources for image editing programmes.
All resources are quite easily found by clicking the main drop down menu for categories on front page. From there you will see many categories with their sub categories and as a further option you can further define your search via the small search bar on the right, just as you would for the rest of the devaintART galleries.


Textures are those touchy feely surfaces that give sensation, tell a story, and surround us in everyday life. Without texture our lives would be bland and uninteresting, but they also have a great significance in the world of visual arts. They can be used to enhance, compliment and add depth to many an image design or project.

Textures We are luckily enough to have in abundance here on deviantART.So we invite you to take your time while browsing this unique gallery.

To find Textures on deviantArt   Browse > Resources > Textures.

Below are just a random few examples and a just a taste of what our gallery has to tempt you.


Textures that contain little or no recognizable or realistic forms from the physical world and focus on elements such as colours, lines, or shapes.

The most common miscats that would be found in Textures are images made with textures,tutorials,but mostly general sub catagory miscats,and sometimes things that have no reletion to textures what so ever.It always important to read your cat descriptions properly and place them in the right category and sub section,as your resource's will actually get the exposure they really deserve and it will aid our members to  find them easier.

Please take the time to read the Artist Relations Newsletter - June 26, 2008 where Moonbeam13'explains a little about deviantART building tools to allow deviants to help us move miscats,and how you the community can help us.

As always,please respect the guidelines and terms of use laid out by each Resource provider for any Resources that you use.
