Standard Rates For Illustrations and Cartoons
Pencil only: $20 for concept sketches, $40 for detailed pencils
Pencil-only artworks are a good choice if you just want to get a professional picture to ink and color yourself, if if you have an in-house colorist. It’s also a good choice if you run an online publication and you need a rough artwork your illustrator can use as a base.
Pencil + Ink: $35 for concept sketches, $65 for detailed inks
You love the black & white style, don’t you? Inked illustrations are detailed, accurate works of art that portray substance and volume through well-thought out shades and lights. They are a good choice if you have an in-house colorist but no penciller and inker.
Logo/Newsletter/E-zine Cartoons (ink or full color): $50
For blogs, business websites, magazines and print publications. Flat rate fixed at $50/piece for this type of artwork.
Digitally Colored: $90
Cartoon style, realistic or manga. Multi-character, with or without background. A digitally colored version of the picture will be delivered by email, while the initial sketch and inked version (paper) can be shipped via registered mail (additional $10).
Paint Colored: $130 – $230
Same as above, but your artwork is painted traditionally — acrylics, Ecoline, watercolor, mixed media, Pantone markers. This is your choice for characters placed in a natural environment, but every setting is appropriate with traditional coloring techniques. I offer a price range here because your final price depends on the complexity of the work you commission. Delivery by both email and registered mail ($10) is included with the price.
