Free/Libre art in the Creative Commons (including public domain)

by FreeLikeGNU » Post

If you need some inspiration or some source material from which to make derivative work: -- libre audio files! Wikimedia Commons CC0 images (ca. 4 million) - Thanks Hybrid Dog!
Resources for free/libre art many just requiring to mention the name of the original author (CC-BY) and lots in the public domain (CC0). Several collections can be searched from here. Be aware that in some cases you will see "ND" which restricts derivative work or "NC" which restricts commercial use.

This is the preferred way to find free graphics. There are many resources available, for those who simply look. Thanks for posting the link.

Using FOSS or CC content from other game and or project sites is also a good resource.

There is the Opensim community of content, some based off of Second Life assets, but relicensed by the owners/creators for Opensim after SL took a crap.

Linda Kellie is a name of a content creator for those platforms who release her entire collection under CC terms. Worth g00gling a name...
