I was recently asked a very good question by Nine-ah ,who said-
Thank you! I went to your blog, great work. I had been to it before when I was checking out all of the EDM links. Answer me this, what is the industry standard rate? Just curious...
And I said-
It's fluidic. But roughly $100 to several hundred for sketches. About $500 - $1000 for finished inked work. And $1000 to $3000 for photoshop color finished art. All this can vary based on difficulty, revisions, and length of time spent. Some clients make gulping noises when they hear this, but some just go "OK, so how soon can you get it done ?" Crazy, huh ?
I hope this can be of help to all the curious artists out there who are unsure how much to charge clients for graphic art and fine art. I'm glad Nine ah brought this to my attention, and I hope she doesn't get mad at me for printing this. Some of the rules in art are murky, this should brighten things up a bit.
Thanx Nine ah !
