Royalty and Copyright-Free Audio and Visual Resources – Top 10

 

This article is a reprint of an article found on the Artistic & Creative Endeavors website, the first in a series of Resources videos for creatives. (Original article posted July 10, 2021.)

For people who’ve been following the Professional Amateur series, this one should be fun and interesting. We’re going to show you several visual and audio resources to liven up your streams or videos. Strap in, this one’s pretty cool!

 

By the end of this video, you’ll have a nice list of bookmarks to sites that will give you new and interesting ways to create or to design art that you may not have known about. There are several visual elements, musical elements, and generally things to help you make your topic much cooler to watch or listen to.

 

Welcome to the Professional Amateur series on Artistic & Creative Endeavors, where we put our extensive skills and creativity to use to help YOU develop your skills, and get to the next level.

 

We’ve been an art and creative community since 2006, with digital and 3D artists, writers, musicians, and lots more! We design websites, help people with branding and logos, and share tutorials on everything from graphics to streaming and everything in between.

 

If you stay to the end of this video, you’ll get see several resources we’ve collected and curated just for you, and you’ll help our channel grow. (Feel free to like, subscribe, comment, and share!)

  4. StreamBeats – A collection of music of several genres commissioned and released by Harris Heller, Youtuber and Twitch Streamer.
