How Do You Find Things?


Recommended Posts

So, I realized last week that I really needed to find my own images and stocks to offer if I want someone to take up my graphic requests. I even played around on GIMP myself on some mock-up ideas but really, I have no idea what I'm doing and I'm on a deadline (Oct 14th). I remember seeing somewhere about morguefiles and pixabay. A friend of mine showed me how to look on deviantart for textures and paper stocks. What resources do you guys generally use for free vectors, stocks, images, and patterns? Bonus points if they offer late 18th century and India stuffs. I love anything relating to India religions, ruined archways, silhouettes of elephants, artistic rendering of peacocks, tigers, marbleized texturing, India motifs / stencils (including a conch), and 18th century stuff that is obvious like maybe fashion or riding a carriage.

I don't know about historic stuff since I have never done a historic site but maybe just google search for stock websites and see what comes up?  Thats all I really do and I only do it for images for my site graphics, not for textures or anything like that.

 

I have tried. I'm still doing so! :) I think I might have been too specific in my searches perhaps. I'm just super cautious of making sure I find something with creative license rather than just stealing images. It's just that everything that I look for in motifs and whatnot are ... well... not freeee. Meh. Especially Mehndi designs.

@kay I use DeveiantArt a lot personally. I use google to find other resource sites too.

 

I love DeviantArt so far. Still digging over there, but I think I found most of the images I'll use for now. Still hunting up something simple for macros.

 

Thank you!

A good tip that I have for DA is that if you need it. If you find something "close" sometimes hunting into a the account may prove more fruitful then just the search. Most accounts that have something will have many things within the same strain.
