CGTextures Memberships

CGTextures is quickly becoming the number-one choice for CG-artists throughout the industry. It has 107470 textures available for download free of charge, and is growing by the day. Top-quality textures and easy site navigation allow you to zero in on the right texture for the right job.

Our textures have been used in such high-profile games as Assasins Creed, Quake Wars: Enemy Territory, Grand Theft Auto 4, and Killzone 2. Here is what the professionals have to say about CGTextures:


Justin Holt | Lead Texture Painter | Image Engine Design Inc

For anybody who is serious about texture painting and can't dedicate money or time to shooting their own reference, CGTextures is the place to get what you need.

I've been utilizing their library of incredible reference for many years now and I am continually impressed and satisfied with the frequent additions to their collections along with the plethora of beautifully shot and organized photographic reference. Some of the images on this site have saved me in my personal and professional work more times than I care to mention.

Without question, one of the best reference sites out there.

Misja Baas | Senior Artist | Guerrilla-Games:

" is one of our primary resource sites for texture work on Killzone 2.

It offers a great collection of extremely useful resource materials, which we have used on environments, props, and vehicles. The site is very well organized, frequently updated, and the quality of the photos is very good.

It is one of the best texture resource sites on the Web!"

Mathias Larserud | Matte Painter | Filmgate:

When working on 3D texturing or mattepaintings for feature-film projects, I am always in need of high-quality texture references. CGTextures has a huge library of fantastic images, which are really useful in production. Be it animal skin, rusty metal, or cloudy skies that I'm looking for, I save a lot of time having just one place to go and look for what I need.

Thank you, CGtextures!

Admir Elezovic | Art Director | Croteam:

Working on our new projects, we use CGTextures on a daily basis. It offers detailed textures for props and objects and provides perfectly scaled textures that can be applied to architectural parts and buildings without much editing or adjusting. Besides, we use CGTextures as a starting point for reference materials.

The search function works very well, and the queries always return excellent textures. The metal and newly added wood textures are, without a doubt, the best you can find on the Net.

Raphael Lacoste | Matte Painter and concept artist:

"CGTextures is a big help to me in creating textures for my projects. I have never seen such a quality in pictures or such a diversity in roof textures as I find in CGTextures!

Your website is amazing!"
