Are there any current day artists out there who are good at imitating the Frank Frazetta style and are willing to take commissions?
helps to tell people this stuff so they get an idea of how the back and forth of trust-forwarding works. some people have this idea that hiring you equals you spending a week working, then they get the work, and then they decide IF they pay you, and what they pay you. On the other hand we also don't want clients to think that they have to send over full payment and trust us not to scam them.
I think that's pretty basic shit anon.
Do you know how long Frazetta himself probably spent on that piece above? You've gotta be realistic, man. $60-80 is fine for some linework with a few figures on it and maybe some solid color - and a good artist can make something that looks pretty cool in that budget, but if you want a full-blown painting with like dozens of figures like Frazetta it's going to cost substantially more unfortunately.
You're paying a highly skilled professional individual to devote their time to your project so you can't really expect to get away with minimum wage. It's like with anything man, custom stuff is always way more expensive than something that's mass-produced because the producer already spent all that money creating it. Take a video game for example. You might feel like you're getting ripped off having to pay $400 for a painting but how much do you think the publishers of a video game paid for all of that artwork in their games? For all of those character concepts, textures, special effects, animations and so on it's easily in the tens if not hundreds of thousands for a triple-A title.
How about you post some of your work and show you're worth $250.
Are you the same asshole who made that thread claiming you were looking to commission painters? If not all I can say is top kek.
how cool is it that this dude has his comission prices out there in the open. they seem a little low though, as usual the market realities are WAAAY below what 'we are supposed o charge'.
Yeah no. As a very self admitted amateur artist who knows they can't draw realisticly for shit, I'd gladly take that for an attempt at a Frazetta knock off.
Aim higher if you want something beautiful. You're asking for punk prices.
