Platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have enabled artists to produce some amazing crowdfunded artwork. These fund-generating tools accumulate around the best proposed ideas. As a result, only the projects with the most potential get produced. The resulting quality of artwork is very high.
Before these funding sources were established, many artists struggled to get capital to back their work. This means that a lot of great ideas went to the grave. With established crowdfunding streams quickly becoming available, money will become easier to come by. Artists can test their ideas in a public forum and receive funding for projects that pass muster. This new reality for artists means that great ideas can still come to fruition without a wealthy patron.
