Pricelists Industry vs Fandom.
If anyone would care to donate a coloured comic page for the comic industry standard list I’m willing to accept one and will give credit c8 I would’ve made one if I had an example but I don’t -A-
But yes that’s off my chest.
Of course this is based off my own browsing over price lists and how I work unfortunately my commissioner homie went idle so I can’t confirm the most vs the least one can spend.
I’ve only found one artist thus far that charges nearly as close to industry standard. Even then it’s under the standard. As far a I’m concerned anyone under the standard shouldn’t have complaints about expensive art. Fandom average is hardly one you can live by.
Would you like to get paid $30 for 3-7 days worth of work?
Edit:No I’m not saying what you should/shouldn’t charge for your pieces. That’s up to you.
I’m talking to supposed commissioners that think it’s too expensive.
This is the hours of your life they’re spending.
If you’re gonna put a price tag on that make it worth that time and effort. For your own sanity.
I wanted to post this so those artists that have been discouraged by “too expensive for me” comments.
And updated the photo, $500-950 for bw art hahaha 6u6
I wish I was making this much money, but when people complain about my dA point commission prices(isn’t it 100-180 = 1 USD? I only charge 300-500 for full body/BG) being too high, you know the fandom attitude is in desperate need of change, even by a little.
I do really want that handbook though, gosh. I charge minimum rates, fandom style. But I also make customers wait a fair bit recently so I guess I just don’t value my own effort highly enough right now.
I should stop getting depressed so easily so I can work on my art and make a usable amount off it hahaa
Yes, a million times yes. Every aspiring cartoonist should at least read (if not own) a copy of the Graphic Artist Guild’s Handbook of Pricing & Ethical Guidelines. I have the 12th edition. It is a great resource overall for illustrators and a good reference for those who want to work in comics but are perhaps not sure what that entails. It’s not cheap but it is totally worth it:
do you still get the fifty cents for sleeping during class if you technically passed out from having terrible gas
If you passed out because of gas, you should probably add the 99 cent cost of a cheap Taco Bell meal to your total.
Actually, it was because I was wearing braces at the time and so not chewing my food because that shit gets gross, and so I was whole-hog swallowing Kraft Mac & Cheese every other meal since it was the cheesiest— er, the easiest to do that with. Stuff slides right on down your throat.
and then my intestines seized up and the pain was so great i just collapsed and i was rushed to the hospital because they thought i had appendicitis but i didn’t the end
