The book I'm writing requires good illustrations in order to fit with the theme. It's depressing that I have two choices: either use my life savings to afford one piece of artwork and go homeless or just leave my pages as plain walls of text that look boring and not engage readers. Game or movie companies have tons of money so they can hire tons of good artists to draw stuff for them to make their lore/stories interesting. Or authors with publishers can just afford any sort of art they like, they don't have to ever worry about illustrations because they'll be able to pay $3000 for some nice book cover or page illustration. Oh well, just wanted to get it off my chest.
