Hi, first let me start off by introducing myself. I'm a british media student about to set out on a relitively large scale project split up into a variety of smaller projects. I decided I'd start small and embark on 2 of the 'smaller projects' and to do so, I'm going to require a concept artist (the two smaller projects are very closely related so one set of concept art will cover both).
Anywho the point of this post, is one of pay. I cannot, and would not expect an artist to work for free, but as stated, im a student and as such I'm not exactly rolling around in cash .
I worked out that what is needed are 13 character designs, 5 vehicle designs and some basic location designs. This is a lot of work, and I'm sure would take up a valuble chunk of an artists time. So I guess what I'm asking is, what sort of fee should I expect to pay.
I've read other posts and sites and people talk of paying $100 an hour, and whilst a proper company could afford to pay this, I couldn't (not unless the artist had a 0% interest for the first 4millenia payment plan anyway ).
I realise I haven't said much about the project, thats only because this post is probably quite long as it is, and if I started ranting on about my project it would be a lot longer, I am of course more than willing to answer any questions anyone has.
Thank you to anyone has taken the time to read this and thanks in advance to anyone who replies.
