2d game assets for sale
You are actually serious about these prices? Custom art would be much cheaper and actually perfectly fit a game's spec.
Really Paul? I don't know, it seems reasonably cheap to me. Haven't really seen anything comparable out there to buy as stock art either, so I'm not sure how you factor in that price.
Either way, GHStanley, I suggest you do some RPG icons. Those are always handy and having a number of different styles would be useful. I'm pretty sure you'd find an audience for them.
My artist (who is basically a freelance but works with us on a cut) would do that for fifty bucks and it'd be to spec and not look like anything in another game. You seen that bit of grass for a dollar?!? Or the plus shape for a fiver?
The backgrounds are arguably worth it, but they're the least of anyone's problems and again very dependent on the sort of game you're doing.
Thanks for the advice zoombapup!
I sell a range of RPG artwork - the audience doesn't seem to be huge.
I don't think Applewoods comment is out of line but I'm notoriously cheap (at least in my house) and hard on artists so take it for what it is worth. I do like stock art and audio at the right price as it's great to be able to build decentish mock-ups - I use a lot of $1-5 images from fotolia for this purpose.
All that said, I like your style and hope you make some money. Let me know if you do RPG stuff, I'd be happy to carry it on my site if it matches the style of what I already sell: http://rustyaxe.com/apps/dd/artPacks.php
Roger, will do. Good luck with the sales...
haha! ...just kidding man. I see where you have a point.
Forums are great. You can say anything and then pretend it was just a joke some minutes later...
Just because I'm naïve I'll still add something constructive here. This kind of non-exclusive assets might find some buyers on http://www.flashgamelicense.com
Like Paul said the price is high for non-specific assets but you'll find plenty of programmers there desperate to get nice art so it might be worth a shot. Cutting the jokes might also improve the sales.
I said, "save the drama for your momma" how serious could I have been?
Thanks for the link!
My point exactly. You're trying to sell something. Being serious about it helps to build a relation of trust.

Don't worry, Applewood will survive...
You shoud add a link to your site in your sig. I like some aspect of your art and have bookmark your link in case I get something for you in the future.
feel free to contact me anytime JC!
Those prices are more than reasonable. Custom art would be ten times that expensive at least.
I see you're advertising your services elsewhere so I wouldn't broadcast that too loud. I assume that means if I wanted the grass spike with an extra leaf in it and maybe a different shade of green then it would cost me just ten bucks? A custom pentagonal block-fill cloud for only fifty bucks?
If anyone thinks I'm being a dick here then I apologise, but I feel like I've dipped into the twilight zone. I've been contracting top quality art in for years and years and never paid anything like this before.
This is meant to be constructive - if you want to make money selling art to indies, either get faster or cheaper. I would expect a game experienced artist to make a cloud like that in about 15 seconds (ok, as part of a larger job) and charge accordingly.
Where's daydream when you need him. If anyone would consider paying 500 bucks for something similar to that first page, drop me a line and I'll get it done for you for half that.
