Right to the point: I'm curious about prices to say when people want to commission me. At the moment a friend of mine is trying to get one of his stories published and he wants me to design the cover. If I take this job, it'd be my first time getting payed for a drawing and I'd be credited as the "illustrator".
I honestly don't think I'm a high enough caliber artist to actually have myself in the public eye, let alone work on a book cover. However, all he's looking for is a simple design: coffins laid out to form a G. This, I can do. I'm more worried about what amount of payment to ask for. If I were to go along with it, how much do I ask for my services?
Thanks in advance to all who reply.
