Here you can see what can be had for absolutely free - no strings attached.

Why? You say...because to some people accomplishment and generosity is more important than money,

but, let's face it, for those who build this software, this is one hell of a job resume.

For free or nearly free 2D software go here:

Check this guy out. His work is incredible. He's Japanese and he worked in trueSpace 3 and 4. Unfortunately, his last images on his website were dated 2002. Last I discovered, he is now employed in the CG industry.

This artist worked with software that can be had almost free, such as truespace 4.5 and in my opinion is the living proof of the old saying that "it's not the tools, but the artist". There truly is no substitute for talent, nor for patience and extreme attention to detail. In my opinion, with his great skill, he pushed the capability of truespace 3 & 4 to the utmost limits. To do work such as this in any modern (and expensive) 3D modelling package would still be an outstanding accomplishment.

Zoo publishing, now 3D Total, sells a downloadable 3D magazine that is quite popular.

In it there you may find tutorials for XSI, Max, C4D, Maya, Blender, and more.

More importantly, you will find features about and by experts to share their skills and inspire you.

A low-res version can be downloaded for free, but

sadly, there are some cheap and unscoupulous people who are intending to drive this little company out of business,

by downloading and giving away the magazine for nothing. I mean, this is petty cash for anyone.
