Best of 2019 - Top 10 Freebies

We’ve had so many great freebies over the years, but here’s our Best of 2019 Freebie Friday posts. Several of these are from pre-2019, which is interesting. Materials and textures for 3D programs were very popular, not to mention, the eternally celebrated free After Effects plug-ins. There are even fully rigged 3D characters and brushes. There’s honestly a winning mix in this grab bag! I’ve checked all of these links, of course, and they are still active, but if you run into problems, let us know.
