    <sarcasm>...but isn't there just a number you can give me? That's too much stuff to think about!!!!1</sarcasm>

    Honestly, awesome find, and it will be quite useful to people willing to use it who don't have much experience, takes into account a very comprehensive list of things people need to think about.

    Oh, yikes. I should be getting $223.00 an hour, according to this thing. I think I'm gonna ask for a 400% raise this year.

    It told me to ask for 13$ an hour... I guess I should save up way more than I do now!

    At a certain point experienced artists become really fast compared to fresh artists, in my own experience it is easier to negotiate rates per asset instead of explaining the client why your hour rates are exorbitant.
    Sometimes it may be hard to find a point of reference in terms of speed but its important to adjust your rates, otherwise you will get cheaper and cheaper.
