Hello, I am currently developing a game and I am a programmer, not an artist. I have just been using cheap placeholders for current art, but the game is progressing faster and further than I had previously thought and I would like to hire someone to make some sprites and other art for the game. I was wondering how someone would go about doing this and how much it will cost for quite a bit of 2D game art with exclusive rights to the art.

Thanks

I'm not sure what it would be, but it would probably quite expensive (I think hundreds?). Art is really, really time consuming. I would try to find as many free resources as you can, and not be afraid to purchase stuff (gamedev has the new marketplace here, for example). 10-30 bucks is really reasonable compared to how much time and skill it took to create those. Finding a dedicated artist probably isn't realistic, especially online since it's so easy to flake out.
