About CCBY Project

Indie game developers (and other people working with creative stuff) often need a lot of graphics for their games, but the cost of commissioning a talented artist for original art can be prohibitively expensive. But what if a bunch of us pooled together?

This project is very simple - we will use the funds generated by this Patreon to pay artists from all over the world to create beautiful pieces of background art licensed under the  CC BY license, meaning that it can be used freely for commercial as well as non-commercial projects, whether it's for a visual novel, a game, animation, or whatever you can think of. 

~95% of all raised funds (after Patreon and Paypal's cut) will go towards paying artists, while we will keep ~5% to cover for the time we spend administrating and managing this. To the fullest extent possible, we will detail each month how much money we've received (after declined pledges, etc.) and what expenses we've incurred.

Each month we will do a survey to determine what kind of backgrounds (i.e. setting/theme) we will commission artists to do.
