Hello! Thanks so much for visiting FidgetResources - I hope you find something here you like. I'm hoping that this becomes a great area for you to get your vintage brushes, textures and digital collage sheets - all for free - all available for commercial use. What more could you want?
Why mainly vintage? Well, I LOVE true vintage items and TRUE retro items. I have a real affinity with the past and want to celebrate that through my resources. Books were bound so much more beautifully, photos were much more honest, drawings had their own style that I adore.
I'm also interested in the obscure. Thankfully dA is rife with swirly, flowery brushes that are definitely popular right now. And yes, I could add to this stock pile of brushes but what would be the point? Why not make brushes out of images people didn't realise they loved until they saw them?
I want my dA to be a wunderkammer. Something that contains obscurities, curiosities and wonders.
So hopefully I'm achieving some of that with my brushes and textures.
I think another important point to note is that all of my resources on FidgetResources are available for use COMMERCIALLY. That means if you're doing a CD cover - go ahead - use my brushes. I would love to see it but I'm not going to chase after you for a license. Why am I doing this? Because all of the images I use are either by me and are experiments or they are from books that have now moved into the public domain. I cannot claim ownership of something that is in the public domain regardless of whether I've turned it into a brush or not. So they're yours to use. The only thing I do claim is ownership over the brushes themselves. As they can take a fair time to make they are not available to distribute elsewhere. Now I've done a bit of searching and I can see that other sites are linking back to me but offering my brushes for download. I'd rather you asked first before doing that!
If you want my other stock based on my photography head to
which will be updated very soon (after having clearance from more models to use some 'out-takes').
So there you go, a bit of background to why, what and wherefore.
