The environment-textures.com login should be working now - apologies for the technical hiccup.

I still can't download any photos, getting the error "Download or IP limit!", even though the current limit says 51/250.

same problem, however here are some links to help you out,

http://www.spectrumtextures.com/index.php

http://www.texturemate.com/

http://www.cgtextures.com/

Flickr is available, please please do what I do and that is to search under advanced and click the creative commons tab and also the commercial use tab. I also send a message to the author and send a link to the matte painting that I have done. If its a commercial matte painting I always ask the author. Never had a no yet, but I always keep a copy of their agreement on file.

Also do you possess a camera, if so use it, create your own texture library. Its hard to get organised at first but you will get the hang of it.


Cheers Rich

Thanks Rockhopper, cgtextures has always been my goto-site but didn't know about the other two. This will definitely get me started.

My old camera is no use for high-res textures so it's always great to hear about other online texture libraries.

Sorry everyone - looks like the account limit was exceeded again.

We'll get in contact with environment-textures.com to make sure no-one is being greedy (downloading large numbers of images for other projects), and try to get it sorted as soon as we can.

Thanks for your patience.

Thank you very much Alex.
Yes you answered everything, now it's clear.

No - the challenge is to follow the concept art as closely as possible, while creating a photo-real image. We don't want this turning into a concept design challenge too - it's hard enough already!



Depends what you mean.

DO add subtle photographic elements (as indicated in the concept) - atmospheric glow, haze, light wrap etc. as required.

DON'T add rubbish instagram effects, grain, vignetting, chromatic aberration or cheesy lens flares.

Does that answer your question, or have I misunderstood what you were asking?



I'll check what's going on tomorrow - I'm seeing the same thing. Thanks for flagging it up.



Look forward to seeing everyone's entries

AJ

Superb theme. It will be very interesting to see how will everyone perform within such tight restrictions. Obviously there will be a need of getting flawless clouds photography, hopefully environment-textures.com will come with help, so far also no luck in downloading any textures from my side. Exciting!
