My friend has joined up with a bunch of other musicians and has formed a black metal band. Being a fan of metal and the only artist he knows, he wants me to do the cover art for their album they're currently recording. My issue is I don't know what to charge. What we worked out is a charred skull with liquid fire dripping out of it's nose, eye sockets, and behind it's teeth with a fiery pentagram and satanic scroll work along it. (Please don't turn this into a discussion about religion!) I figure it would take me about 4 hours or so to complete.
This would not be charged like a "real" album cover for the following reasons:
He's my friend.
He's my age (either 14 or 15) and money isn't easy to come by.
Who knows how long this band will last.
They aren't pros and neither am I.
Can I please have some help? I've done T-shirts for $20 for some kids at school before but $20 seems too little for this.
