This is a list of the best websites to get free textures for Blender. Editorial: you can use the textures, but you can’t resell them in any form. or use them in professional work. CC0: 100% free, the original creators hold no rights, you can do whatever you want with the textures!
There are a lot of tutorials covering this online, Here is a good one by Jayanam. Alternatively you can use LilySurfaceScraper (which I talked about here) to import the textures and setup everything for you.
Now without further ado, let us begin:. Download: Clicking the “Download Maps” button brings you to google drive where you can choose which maps to download. Every Texture has a very unique library of textures both seamless and non seamless. true to it’s name it has a very extensive archive, images varying in usability and quality.
Downloading: Lets you choose which maps to download, in case you do not want to download all the maps (normal, roughness etc.). It does not however let you choose your resolution while downloading.
Share Textures is another great library with hundreds of free textures, there are some weird obviously procedural textures, but other than that it is a great place for free textures. Download: Gives you several image resolution options, but does not let you select individual maps.
3Djungle has a massive texture library, with over 5000 textures! Many seem like there would never be a reason to use them in a 3D scene, but there are just so many that it can be used as a back-up, if textures are not available on other texture websites. Download: Easy download, The image sizes are random (usually fairly high res) and no map choosing options when downloading.
After clicking on an image, you will be taken to the website where you can download the files. License: You may not resell these textures. Download: Resolution varies per image. cgbookcase has just over 500 textures. It also has an awesome search bar allowing you to pick resolution, category and color to filter out the options.
Download: Easily downloaded, allows you to choose resolution, but many textures are only 2k. Poly Haven has a small collection of textures, just over 200, but the quality is outstanding, with every image being at least 8k.
Download: Very great download options, lets you choose resolution, which maps to download and what format each map should be (options are PNG, JPG and EXR). ambientCG is one of the best places to get your textures, It is also compatible with LilySurfaceScraper making it very easy to import textures strait into blender.
Download: lets you choose resolution and format, downloads all maps in a zip.

algotn Written June 12, 2020 . When appending, the .blend file is empty. Isn't there supposed to be a /Brushes folder? Nice selection of brushes, thanks for making them freely available. I wish Blender came with a range of brushes already, it seems such an obvious, and easy, addition.
any chance to get the images that go with the brushes or am I just totally missing them and they are in this already? pal1y Written March 05, 2021 .
This is super awesome. Thank you for sharing.
Works on 2.9 as well. braj Written June 04, 2021 . Kingjames.obuoforido Written August 18, 2021 . SER_STRIKER251 Written October 09, 2021 . SER_STRIKER251 Written October 09, 2021 .

your instructions end halfway through what is actually needed, hitting append does nothing on its own. You need hit File->Append to then navigate to your zip extracted new brushes folder and go into the brushes sub-folder, select all the brushes you want and hit append.If you want these brushes in all your "new" projects then remember to do all this from a blank scene and save them to you File->Defaults->Save Startup Director.
If you want the brushes in an existing scene then you just have to import them again from that scene. info as of blender 3.1. Thank you VERY MUCH! Excellent information for a relative newby. Does anyone know how to also add the icons to the brushes? I appended the brushes, but they come without their icons. Does anyone know how to also add the icons to the brushes?

Like many other services offering high-quality textures for Blender, much of what you'll find here will, in fact, cost you. If you're looking to scrounge, keep your eyes peeled for the little green tag indicating that a texture download is free. You've got 15 free credits to use per day, at one texture credit a pop.
