I recently had a discussion with a 2D artist about doing some graphics for a few retro style projects. I was shocked at the prices I was being quoted. He then said "graphics are more important than the programming". At first I was a little po'd then I realized he was probably right..... So without naming the project (unless you want to ofcourse) how much did you spend for graphics on a project? Do you agree graphics are more important than the programming and therefore good graphics are worth the high prices? Do you think your last game would have sold more if it had better graphics? Thanks for your feedback.
