Resource Collection

This is a collection of resources and software that I have found useful for 3D artists in one way or another. Some are free and some are paid resources.

Free to use cc0 or no attribution resources

Textures

https://yethiel.wordpress.com/cc0-textures/ this is a 5gb package of textures to download

http://www.chocofur.com/ got high quality textures only requirement is to create an account to download them. cc0

http://duion.com/art/main this is a library of cc0 textures. Mostly photos that is taken to be used as textures, not properly prepared to be seamless or anything though so they need some work.

Images

https://pixabay.com/ only cc0 images, larges library and fast growing

https://stocksnap.io cc0 images, smaller library, may find more unique images here
