Worthful is cataloging the best of digital stock art, graphics, cartoons & photography available, as well as contributing its own works. Althoughwe are just starting out, we are happy to share with you the best royalty-free resources (in public domain, free/freeware & commercial art).
The royalty-free stock art galleries listed here feature Public Domain, Creative Commons Public Dedication (CC0) and GNU licensed art by the masters that we thoroughly enjoy and want to share. While you do not necessarily have to attribute these works under these "PD" licenses, please credit the masters.
These Public Domain & Public Dedication artworks indexed in these galleries are not only free to use, but can also be used to create new artworks. Note, however, that using such works as your own is highly discouraged in the art world. This is why we ask that the original master artist be credited, so that if someone does use a PD work as an element in their own work, they can properly credit it.
Note that these resources may offer artworks in licenses other than PD, but have plenty of works under these licenses. Just check each image license.
Decorative clip art catalogs (free or freeware art). Themed graphics art packages for designers & presenters. Seamless backgound tiles and full screen hi-res backdrops . Cartoons (by myself or my fellow artists). Illustrations. My own Stock Photography.
Please note that all resources listed are not always free or freeware, but may be temporarily free to introduce or demo the stock imagery.

The following are the recources I have had success with in the past...
