If you don't mind me asking, how much did you get paid do the rainbow kittens haha I've been looking into starting commissions and I have just no idea where to even start with the pricing and all that jazz, also...I'll admit I am a little curious of how much someone will pay for rainbow cats art xD
Haha, as far as commissions go, here is my advice!
Estimate how long you think each type of illustration (sketch, colored, etc) will take you. Let’s say a full blown illustration takes you 4 hours from sketch to final render (just for an even number). If you charge $20 for that, that’s $5.00/hr. Which means you’re working below minimum wage. Which is terrible. I see super talented artists undercharging on tumblr ALL THE TIME and you guys make me wanna cry.
Anyway! Once you have that set, find an hourly rate you’re comfortable with and estimate your prices from there. If you’re just starting out, maybe start on the lower side of the spectrum - you can always bump up your prices later. It all boils down to how valuable you think your time is. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, TUMBLR.
