This is quite a common question we get on here and while people have the general idea to charge per hour - how much should we be charging per hour and how can we work out how long things will take? Probably questions that have been asked 100 times before, however i think as a fresh forum we should jump on the badwagon and pioneer some industry airbrush rates! We could end up putting it to other forums to agree on these industry rates also which could become a point of call for anyone wanting to know how much their work is worth and how much to quote? To get us started here are my initial ideas: All prices should be based off $US currency. First thought is to have people rank themselves as a beginner/ intermediate/ advanced artist. Second thought is to have flat rates for items such as: Car parts - bonnets, tailgate, side of car (for all parts requiring clear coat i think we need to separate the preparation + clearcoat of items & try to make standard rates for these also) Illustrations - Single portrait + $?? per additional portrait - monochrome Illustrations - Single portrait + $?? per additional portrait - full color Wall mural - Per m2 + Any additional items you'd all like to price. Once we've had significant input and a general agreeance on what to charge - we'll make a sticky thread and hopefully can refer people to this industry standard rates list There'll always be others out there who are desperate for work or want to undercut the market - but i believe this is the best solution to getting paid what we feel we deserve.
