I love animating and creating cartoons, which involves a lot of resources like sounds, textures, and images. I’ve compiled a list of resources I use for my animations. I think you’ll find this list helpful if you’re looking for free resources for your animations!

One of the best resources, and the main bookmark I have is It has EVERYTHING! Music, images, sound effects, and stock video footage. I would definitely start here.

Here’s some more free resources I would recommend:

Royalty Free Sound Effects

Royalty Free Music

Royalty Free Images & Textures

I really hope these resources will help you create some awesome cartoons and animation!

Music and sound effects can really add a lot of depth to your animation, and textures will make your backgrounds pop!

When mixing sound effects, often I will close my eyes, and if the audio alone makes me laugh, then I know the cartoon will be funny and the visuals will just add to it! :)

If you have any resources you love, please share them in the comments below!


edit: Added 2 more free music websites thanks to @chris_sparrows!
