16 free PBR textures and HDR maps (Rock and Wood)
As an artist working with architectural visualization, you will have to build an extensive library with assets that will help you to set up a scene quickly. From HDR maps to PBR textures, you will need all those assets.
Nowadays, it is easy to find online libraries offering those resources in creative commons zero. That is great to save costs on making an asset library, but it might cause you some trouble to find and keep track of all updates from those libraries.
To help you download the latest updates on textures and HDR maps, we often make lists with the new releases from several of those libraries.
Here is a pack with 16 new textures you should download:
- New Texture: Rock #26
- New Texture: Leaf Set #11
- Outdoor HDRI: Evening Road 01
- New Texture: Rocks #21
- New Texture: Rocks #20
- New Texture: Rocks #19
- New Texture: Rocks #18
- Outdoor HDRI: Old Tree in City Park
- New Texture: Carpet #14
- New Texture: Wrinkles Brush #4
- New Texture: Ground #32
- Indoor HDRI: Old Bus Depot
- New Texture: Rock #25
- New Texture: Wood #33
You can download all those resources directly from each one of the sites. The highlight of this list is the textures of the rocks. They will let you create a quick background for external render.
