    hey guys i need some advice on pricing my artwork.

    Ive been commissioned to design 2 fantasy characters for a Internet security business pitch.

    I spent about 8-10 hours in total on one image and the client is very happy with the end result. It was originally done on paper then fully rendered in photoshop on an Intuos 5 Tablet.

    The image is bigger then A4 and done at 300 dpi and is in full colour with no background. ( for now ).

    Im not a professional but im no where near an amateur and have been drawing for the most part of my life on and off. I cant show you this particular image but here is a sample i showed the client which got me the role.

    Work on an hourly rate and you can't go wrong.

    Freelance art like this, if your starting off probably $40 - $60 per hour depending on the client. If you've been in the industry for a while and have higher profile clients probably $80+

    I'm surprised you didn't agree on a price/rate before starting, maybe do that next time.
