Hi fellow deviants! I'm mecurycode and I provide you with high resolution resources, mainly textures.

Over the past years, I've developed a great passion for making textures. They can be so versatile and not only represent a mixture of art and resource, they too hold the potential of adding to marvellous works of other artists.

If you'd ask me what fascinates me the most in the process of making them, I'd say it's spotting the beauty in decay. Sometimes the destruction of something brings out a whole different kind of beauty. Rust, for example, can be so bright, colorful and versatile that I can't seem to ever capture enough of it. Feel free to browse through my gallery and if you feel inspired, go for it!

Stock & Resources
How stunning were all the texture uploads in 2014 so far? For this feature Sirius-sdz and I mercurycode each picked 20 texture treasures among our favorites this year. It was a tough choice and we could have easily made it a hundred each, but we wanted to spare you a texture shock. You know, like when you eat too much candy. Only minus the candy. You get my drift!

So here's mercurycode's 20 favorites, presented by category:


ORGANIC
