    Art rates confusion!

    So long story short, a guy was thinking about hiring me for freelance for one of his projects. I'm a 2D artist ( completely new to the professional world ) and he asked about my rates.

    I asked for $30/hour which I figured was an alright starting point. ( correct me if I'm wrong. ) and I've talked to a lot of artists who charge around there. Being new, should I have charged less? I'm not entirely dependent on freelancing to make a living, so I thankfully don't have to worry about that.

    Anyways, the guy seemed quite nervous and asked what I would charge if I was part of the team, instead, rather than freelancing. Do you charge less in that case?

    Would that mean employed? Then you should charge the amount that you need to make a living each month.
    Your freelance rates, too, should be based on how much you need to make in order to make a living - here's a simple way to calculate that: http://www.mondhase.com/simplest-way-calculate-prices/

    Of course, if you are not dependent on freelancing, it does not really matter and you can work for whatever rates you and the client both agree to.
