Every once in a while I get asked why I don't post texture tutorials here on Lost & Taken, and to tell you the truth: I try to keep the focus on releasing awesome free textures. That being said, I have a Google email alert set up for my blog and every week I see my textures show up in a couple of rad design tutorials. So I thought it was about time that I compiled a list of these tutorials, there's a lot of material to go over here in case you're looking to learn something new.
Each tutorial below uses textures that I've either released here on Lost & Taken or on my Flickr account and are put together by some of the top designers out there. They cover areas from illustration to professional web design to photography, and just about everything in between. I'm always amazed at just how versatile a good texture can be in the hands of a great designer.
I hope you enjoy the tutorials and feel free to share any others that I may have missed in the comments.
