Free Texture Tuesday: Vector Grunge

by Jay Hilgert
on December 29, 2010

I’m a day late, but I had trouble writing my own javascript for these textures. I thought I’d change things up a bit and make some vector textures. To generate these textures, I used an Illustrator plugin called Scriptographer. These are 5 vector grunge textures I created using scriptographer and Illustrator. I would share the script, but I’m not done with it yet. I have to figure out how to remove about 1000 empty layers first. Anyway, I like having this ability because I make fonts every once in a while and the ability to generate random shapes and subtract them form the letters will come in handy for making distressed fonts. These can also easily be converted to Photoshop brushes for easy stamping. I hope you guys like them!
