I was reading some blender related correspondence, and it instructs to start building a texture library as soon as possible. well, can anyone point me in the right direction?
A camera’s good. Collecting your own images helps to make you more aware of the visual qualities of your environment too. Check my sig for a link to some of my images (not that I’m pushing them here, just as an example).
