Get Creative with Christmas Design Resources!

Sharing Saturday: Christmas resources

December has firmly started and Christmas is on the way, which means it sounds like a good time to share some christmas graphic design resources. You can use these to spruce up your blog or website for a festive feel, or to create graphics for social media or as gifts. As usual I’m nabbing them from Deviant Art, enjoy!

If you are the artist and want your work removed please leave me a comment. If you like some of the art here please take the time to visit the artist’s DeviantArt and/or leave a comment to let them know. This is probably obvious, but: this post is very image heavy.

Incredible Disney Fanart You Need To See

Sharing Saturday: Disney Fan Art

 

This week Sharing Saturday is a special edition. Earlier this week we laid to rest my nan, the woman who introduced me to the magic of Disney. She was a huge fan of Disney and so it seems only right to dedicate this week to her love. So here is a selection of my favourite Disney fanart on Deviant Art.

5 DeviantArt users for fantastic resources

Sharing Saturday: Design resources

 

I’ve been designing graphics and websites for years now, and one of the most valuable things in my arsenal is fantastic resources created by others that can be used for free. So here are 5 of my go to users for free resources.

 

Crazykira Resources

If you ever checked the credits for any of my websites you’re likely to see Crazykira Resources listed 😛 I absolutely love her patterns and textures! Here are some of my favourites of her work:


Icon Textures .39 by crazykira-resources on DeviantArt


Large Textures 21 by crazykira-resources on DeviantArt


Patterns .24 by crazykira-resources on DeviantArt

 

 

Spiritcoda

Another firm favourite for several years now is spiritcoda and her gorgeous textures for icons and wallpapers/bigger graphics.


Pinky Icon Textures by spiritcoda on DeviantArt


Icon Textures – Universe Set of Textures (20 ) by spiritcoda on DeviantArt


Black_White Large Textures by spiritcoda on DeviantArt

 

 

Lookslikerain

Lookslikerain is my go to for icon textures; she has made so many and covers pretty much every colour and texture – and she’s still going strong! Here’s some examples of her lovely icon textures, but she also has packs of larger and mixed sizes too.

19 Stunning World of Warcraft Legion Fanarts

Sharing Saturday: World of Warcraft Fanart - Legion

It’s been a while since I did a World of Warcraft fanart SS (check out the previous ones; Night Elves, Couples and Pets), and to celebrate the background downloader starting for the Legion Pre-Patch I figured that a Legion themed one was in order! A lot of the amazing Legion fanart out there is due to the awesome contest that Wowhead organised so make sure you check out the winning entries from that too. You can view all entries for the contest in the contest gallery as well.

If you like some of the art here please take the time to visit the artist’s DeviantArt and/or leave a comment to let them know. This is probably obvious, but: this post is very image heavy.
