no rules for any creative usage, non-commercial or commercial, use them however/whereever you want. This doesn't include using/uploading/selling my textures as they are or claiming ownership, I still made them.
2. your texture packs, are that just the single textures wrapped in a pack?
nope, i choose my second and third loved versions of my textures and wrap them up for you.
3. okay, what is a 1 day texture, why do you delete these?
i'm not fine with these versions or experiments, so i give them away but delete them after 24 hours. i don't want this account to be spammed, you get something exclusive.
yes i have some more accounts, around 5 on deviantart.
5. do you accept commissions?
yes, but it shouldn't differ very much from the things, that i offer here anyway, should fit my workflow. this means no seamless textures, no scanned paper, no plain boring textures. these 3 are probably more useful than my stuff, but they are already offered in awesome quality on deviantart, nothing that i could improve. if you do want custom textures with this in mind, contact me skype: sirius-sdz, mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or leave me a note here or on facebook www.facebook.com/Darkzero.art
6. i want to donate to you, is this possible?
i dont ask for it, but it makes my day for sure. you can either buy exclusive textures that i offer beside my normal textures or donate at my profile page. every donor gets something exclusive. you could also make my day and donate to my paypal account: email@example.com if you do i'd like to thank you with exclusive works as well. thank you for the donations so far!
7. your textures are used in my book/homepage/on a photoshop magazine/on a cover, how should i credit?
you dont have to, but if you want just put a link to this account, if you want to use my real name: Sascha Duensing.
8. how do you make your textures?
it depends on my mood, but basically i take photos (walls, skyshots, bokeh, scratches) and mix them in photoshop. here is a step by step from my texture 222 sirius-sdz.deviantart.com/art/…

This feature consists of two different parts: At first I am introducing tutorials teaching how to create textures yourself; both traditional and digital methods.
