I’ve been working on something special for the last few months - and update to my HDRI shop.
Only it’s not a shop anymore. All the HDRIs are now completely free for everyone, no catch.
No accounts, no email spam, no restrictive licenses or even captcha. Just pure HDRIs ready to be downloaded.
Get them here: https://hdrihaven.com/
Here’s some of the new HDRIs:
This is something I’ve been wanting to do from the very beginning, but releasing stuff for free when you still need to pay the bills isn’t easy. I eventually realized that I care a lot more about people using my HDRIs than I do about earning money, so I decided to take the risk and publish everything for free, hoping that enough kind souls would support me on Patreon to help me continue.
You can read more about my decision here, but it basically just boils down to the Blender community being awesome <3
Blenderartists is famous for it’s discussions so I’m curious to hear what some of you think about this idea in general. I’m 100% expecting many people to think this was a terrible idea, that I’m throwing away a good thing just to make myself feel better. You might not be wrong, but it’s really not about me anymore.
Anyway, I have no idea if this is going to work out at all, but I hope you like it
