  2. A list of free resources and other useful things for 3d artists

  4.  
  5. Almost everything on this list should be free. That doesn't mean it's CC0, so if you're wary about copyright, it might be a good idea to check first.
  6. Some sites may require a signup, and some might be sites that are "free" but limit how much or what you can download.
