Default 250+ Free Panoramic Skies - 10-29-2008, 08:21 AM

For the last 6 months I've been spending a big portion of my time photographing and processing panoramic skies. Recently I have hit a big milestone: there are now more than 250 fully panoramic skies online!

All skies are available in the equirectangular and cubemap format and can be downloaded for free at a resolution of 8000x2000 pixels. Members are able to download the skies at up to 15000x3750 pixels in size.

So if you need a skybox for your matte painting, drop by CGTextures!

Here are some examples:
