On the average I'd like to pay no more then $25 for a full body full color 2 character piece. but in your style I'd say you're woth $40 for a two character full body full color

Sorry to say but that's way on the low end of the scale. Artists on Zapa's skill level usually would charge $50+ for a single character colored, at least. It takes a lot of skill and a lot of time to make art this good, and even $40 would probably end up being well below US minimum wage when you consider how much time it takes to do the commission.

It kind of sucks but... if someone like me put the time they've spent learning and practicing their art into learning and practicing to be a mechanic, we could be earning $30+ per hour. Adults just can't afford to make their art affordable if you don't have decent income, yourself.

Wow! I am pretty sure I am to poor to get commision... You art is spectacular! I could only afford like  $25-30 dolllars but remember never to sell yourself short because it took a long time to be able to draw so wonderfully! I was sorting myself on my chain maille work and some one set me straight on what I should charge for a piece.

$50 for a full body, full color with minimal background. $75 for two characters. It is of course understood that detailed backgrounds and especially intricate details cost extra.

You have a very cool style and very impressive quality, so I think you can get people to pay at least that much easily.

HALF A BUCK! All joking aside, for a piece of your art (say a full detailed/colour/shaded piece) I'd happily pay in the $120 region.

Something based on the hours it takes you to complete the work, rather than a flat fee. Price yourself based on your skill(Good++) and how long it takes you to complete an average piece, not on what people tell you they want to pay.

I personally can't pay above $50 for any work, unless I'm splurging. Your quality is very high though, and I think you'd be out of my price range.

I think a fair price would be $25 for a single character sketch, $40 for simple colors/shading, $60 for something fully rendered, maybe $80-$90 for something fully painted with nice shading, and around half price for additional characters. This is more than I can afford for commissions, but I think it's fair for your skill level, and you can always increase the price if the demand is too high. I see a lot of people giving you prices 'they' would like to pay, but I've been around the fandom for 10-15 years, and that's about what I'd expect for an artist of your talent level, which is medium-high, in my humble opinion. If you ever wanted to do a trade or collaboration for writing though, maybe then I'd get the chance to get some art from you. For now, I'm just enjoying the show =3

i could never exhaust over 100 dollars for any piece of data, now if it's a scenic painting i can place on my wall, it's good detail and size, that's different, but not more then 180, digital art isn't as valuable, and is at it says, digital, a piece of data, completely frivolous to buy, and to be honest, you don't physically have anything to show for a digital piece of art, sure you can look at it, but it's not always permanent, the artist deactivates their account, something as that, your stuck with a piece of data you can't replace if your computer or device goes out, so getting back on topic, $20-$40 is my max, no further

You aren't paying just for the data, you're also paying to have someone else do it for you. If an artist can't make enough to live off of, they'll stop doing commissions altogether. It's similar to the concept of restaurants, residential landscaping, and digital downloads like games and songs

but then there are artist who do this for fun and not to survive. They base their prices in the $20 and $30 range just because just to see commissioners fight over them. Then a $100 and $150 artist doesn't get as many and their on the same quality level and they need to survive. How does it work out...
ReaperReaperOfficial

Almost no artists do it for fun to begin with, and the few that do are pretty shitty and not well known.
Also, RuDragon has commissions that start at $200 and any time he opens commissions, they are filled within 30 minutes and fought over. Most cheaper artists also use cheap methods like copy/paste/modify or cancel commissions frequently.
At any rate, undercharging hurts artists, and most artists are actually boycotting the act and any artist that undercharges. Only artist I know that has a base price below $50 is Middroo's banner commissions, which become more expensive as you add characters and there is a wait time of a few months.

but there are quality artist who charge under $50 for 2 characters and are actually good and well known. I don't know who you've been around but people Like Koko are based at $25 flat and full rate to do a 1 or 2 character piece and they come out pretty freakin good. I personally see a $60 maybe $75 piece but $25 is what he wants to charge and his lists get quite full.  So it is possible and doesn't hurt him in the slightest. Not to mention he has bills rent and food to pay for as well

Artists like Middroo, Soothe-Bell, VotBear, Maya-Neko, RuDragon, Aogami, Gothbunny and Ketzio11, and Hensa are all high priced commission artists that charge high because they need the money, and they only get away with it because they are high quality artists, unlike what I've seen from Koko. Most of them sell on Tumblr and DeviantArt primarily, where cheap artists are basically boycotted. InkBunny seems to be the only place where cheap artists are still relatively common, and even then, higher priced artists are still being preferred here

I dunno what you've been smokin... but that's straight up slander. I'm not gonna say who but 1/2 the artist you just named do not need the money they even told their watchers that they do it for fun so whilke I do appreciate that you're defending them just know that their high prices do not pay the bills unlike the other 1/2 artist you named who actually do need the money. Not saying who. And again not sure what you been smokin... but if you actually cared to see KoKo's work you'd beg and plead him to raise his prices even though he truly does need the money but it's his choice to keep it at $25 it's not because he sucks and he's pretty damn good too just check out his gallery *please excuse for writing about another artist on your journal* but you have to accept some artist choose to keep it low and it doesn't hurt them in the slightest. Has nothing to do with DA witch is weird you mention that it's their choose what prices are fished out. I'd like to know who'se dumb idea it was that your price rage determines how good you are as an artist. Honestly a prices should never be put on art good or bad. As long as you know how to draw IMO you're priceless.

I agree with the others that say the $50 to 100 range. Possibly more for multiple characters or backgrounds.

No lower then $50 to start. You're talented, have a style that appeals to a lot of people, that sort of thing. Always take in consideration how much time you're spending as well as the time spent honing your skills when pricing. I suspect you'll have a fair amount of demand as well. I'd say around $50 for a single character with no or simple back ground and go up from there (80-100 for two characters, for example). If you're wanting to cover the folks who are of limited funds you might want to offer  something simple and cheap, but that's entirely up to you. Just because a person can't afford your prices doesn't obligate you to lower them; I want a PlayStation 4 a whole lot but that doesn't mean Sony should sell me one at half price.

Probably 50-100+ depending on factors like, how explicit it can be and whether it may parody popular TV characters.

I'm too poor to ask for commissions, so any number I say would just be a mockery of decent wages that would lead to me being ostracized from the community and run out of my hometown.

True story.

your quality art? I'd happily pay around $75 for a single character, full coloured and shaded.

Judging from your gallery, which is veeery nice to look at, I'd say you could easily charge $60 at least for a single character.

80-100 dollars for fully coloured pick with background. You could ofcouse make discounts for frames such as in small commics and sequences.
ReaperReaperOfficial

No less than $40, and that is only if you can turn out multiple commissions a day and only as a starting point. You don't want to charge low, it hurts other artists that can't charge low. Charge extra for additional characters. Have different prices for thinks like line art commissions, flat colors, shaded, pixelated, etc. Charge more for NSFW.
Just make the price something worth your time, covers any operating costs, and doesn't undercut other artists.

Im not shopping for anything at the moment, but if I was I would probably pay about .5 times for a cub commision what you would ask for a general clean piece. For a general adult piece I would pay around 1.3 times your asking price for general commissions. Overall probably not enough to be worth you while. I noticed in the video you put out a while back that you had copics. I would probably be willing to pay an arm and a leg for an original by you regardless of subject.

You should charge whatever you want. Given that you don't seem to need the money that badly, it doesn't matter if most are discouraged, though charging something randomly crazy like 500 dollars for a picture would make people go "wtf".

I probably won't be able to afford you, so I'll just stop talking now.
