Fun with Fabrics
Heavily featured in this second asset drop are various types of fabrics, such as wool, knits, cotton, and corduroys. Fabrics are a crucial part of costume creation for character art, furniture and scene dressing, and beyond! Some of our favorite fabrics include Knit Basket Loop, Knit Parallelogram, Wool Herringbone, and Wool Houndstooth. Be sure to check them out and send us some showcase renders of how you’ve used fabrics in your artwork.

We’ve expanded the Materials section adding 107 new Materials that range from metal, dirt, ceramics, stone, and paint. Of notable mention is the new Creature category, which offers different types of scales and fur materials. Now is the perfect time to texture that sheep character you’ve placed on the backburner.
