What people are saying
"Friendly Shades continually sets a high bar for quality when it comes to scan data. With very high resolution maps that are always crisp, Friendly Shade has quickly become one of my go to source for reference and inspiration."
Senior Enviroment Artist, Red Storm Entertaiment
"We would like to thank Friendly Shade for this! The quality of the textures is beyond what any 3d artist could have wished for! Amazing depth, sharpness, and representation of concrete and road textures."
Art Director, Creatorz Deitz
"These textures are extremely good! Every set is well balanced with a huge amount of detail and information captured, I've just never seen anything like this. The hype is real, they are simply flawless and deserve no less than a 10/10."
CGI Artist, Mastering CGI
"Fine detail is what we thrive on - perfecting every aspect of a full CGI project is what brings it fully to life. If you have not come across the work of Sebastian Zapata yet then you should. He has begun a texture library called Friendly Shade that is quickly expanding with some of the highest quality maps you will find anywhere"
