- hiring artists to create your assets,
- do you make them by yourself,
- do you purchase them from assets platforms,
- do you find them for free on free assets platforms,
- do you use what you find on google (whatever the license)?
Just curious. I have seen games with very nice graphics in the completed games sections and I am really wondering.
1) Some Yes, Some No. I don't, and some draw it themselves.
2) Some People.
3) Visit the Scirra Store and you'll find out that many do.
4) So many sites give assets for free, for example Kenney.nl provides free assets or Scirra Bundle provides it if you purchase a license. (Also Opengameart.org is popular for free assets.)
5)Absolutely not. What I mean, we don't just download anything on google with just any license. There are some procedures to make it legal.
You need to find the right license for assets. It is free if:
(I am not a lawyer and this is just based on my opinion and I am not liable for anything and the reader may choose to believe me or not. It is up to them!)
1) It is a Public Domain or Open source (then you can do anything with it as long as you don't break the publisher's own rules.)
2) If it is within the CC License then I believe it is likely to be free and can be used commercially if it doesn't break any rules. (depends on the kind of license)
3) It is free if you credit the maker and you come to an agreement. More likely a CC License.
