20 Free Vector Pallet Wood Textures in AI, EPS & PNG Format

Creative inspiration

This set of vector pallet wood textures contains 20 images made with a mix of wood grain, knots and filth. There’s a variety of natural grungy patterns taken from single planks, as well as multiple planks positioned side by side in horizontal and vertical layouts to capture the panel gaps within the texture detail.
      Each texture comes in AI and EPS vector formats, which allows you to scale them to any size and easily change the colour. Also included is a series of standard PNG files with transparent backgrounds, for maximum compatibility with all design software.

      To survive, successful game designers must have good ideas. Not just one or two, either. They have be brilliant on demand. Worth stealing from? I think so.
