What is the best resource for portfolio building as a Game Artist?

I'm looking to build a website to show off some of my work, but I'm not sure what the best option is. There are a lot of website-building services, but most have fees. Are there any good free options or should I bite the bullet and buy something like squarespace? For context, I am a rising junior studying game art. I'm a 3d generalist, but I mainly want to show off my modeling in Zbrush.
