    Well it's a smaller market, and market share is given no doubt to http://www.cgtextures.com/,

    If you can make the website quickly and cheaply enough then there's not much risk, though there are enough sites who did it, competing for SE rankings won't be easy so you'd have to spend money on advertising more than likely.

    Though if you can make the site yourself and have very little cost to maintain then maybe you'll have enough sales to cover that? It's not something easy to judge really. I can't find any sales figures to go off, so you probably couldn't base a business around it, perhaps make it more of an on the side project.

    Well it would be just on the side any ways. I feel i got nothing to lose as i could set it up for just about free, besides a payment gateway and SSL cert. What do you mean about ?" competing for SE rankings"?

    "Selling textures" or "giving away textures"?

    Selling them? No. There are a bunch of sites that not only give the textures away, but they also have tutorials on how to make the textures yourself. Even I have started to learn how to make them for a site I'm working on, and I sux at artz.

    Giving them away? Maybe. You'd have to come up with some pretty unique ones, though, and that's going to be tricky.
