Best of 2019: Top 10 Freebie Friday Posts of 2019
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.
