SKALGUBBAR / Free 2D Cutout People

You can never have enough 2d cutout people for your renders. A steady supply is needed to avoid repetition and today I stumbled upon this great looking site and resource by Teodor Javanaud Emdén called SKALGUBBAR. It is an online library of free high-resolution cutout images of people for your renderings. Finding people images on the internet was hard so Teodor started to take photos of his friends and they all started to use them in their visualizations.

The quality of the images is very good and Teodor’s friends also pose some unexpected scenarios which is nice for a change. Putting it into a website format motivated further growth of the library and you can also see some of the works being made using this library on the SKALGUBBAR website and a few samples here too (seems like a great way for up-and-coming architects to get into the big firms around the world) :
