How Much Does Art Matter?Game Design
Hello there! I'm an illustrator stepping my foot into board game art and hoped I could gain some insight from this community.
1. How much does the quality of art influence your decision to buy a game/backing a game on kickstarter?
2. Is there a game you absolutely love to play but has horrible art?
3. What are some examples of games that out-do all others in aesthetics/art?
4. I personally love illustrating in painterly style, but often see well polished designs as a trend (since well-polished also means good readability especially since board game components are small in scale). Can you think of board games with a painterly, brushy style that still works/is well received?
Feel free to respond to any of those! Would love to hear from anyone and am also curious if there are other illustrators in the community too. Thanks in advance!
