I had a client approach me about creating some maquettes for a 3d animation project. Though I sculpt, my usual realm of freelance is print so I have no idea how to go about charging for this service. I did a little research and came up with this:
- An hourly rate, with an estimation of how much time it would take to complete the sculpt based on detail (one formula was 2 hrs per inch).
+ Revision fees
+ Cost of supplies
-Separate consideration given to pricing for: purchase of original sculpt vs. loan of sculpt vs. cast of sculpt (labor + supplies). (I think I prefer casts just so I keep the original and I don't have to worry about the shipping service drop-kicking the piece. x_x)
Does anyone have any experience in this realm as far as things I haven't considered, common business practices, their formulas and/or hr rates?
Thanks very, very much!
