I am sorry if this is in the wrong thread to post this or if someone else has already asked this but I do have a question regarding the Works in Progress thread.
I am planning on doing a fundraising platform once I get further in my game but I read that we need to have a demo of sorts to include it in the forum. I was wondering what if we need the fundraising platform to pay for the artwork that is needed in the game (sprites, backgrounds, CGs)? I am a writer so I have a hired an artist to do the artwork but in order for the artwork creation to start, I need to pay the artist. So I feel like this is kind of a catch 22 for me...
Any advice given would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Use creative commons art or hand drawn stick figures for the demo, and state that you'll be using a paid professional artist for the final project. Pay him for at least one sprite, background , or CG so you can show a sample of the 'final' artwork.

Remember to negotiate if you can to ensure agreement between both parties in regards to payment. Chances are that as long as the artist wishes to stay in the project out of their own volition, then they may still be able to work with you in accordance to your budget. Though not always the case, it's always good to try. Artists are people, too, after all.
