You get a call from a client that wants you to do a painting or drawing for them that they are going to use for a promo. They ask you how much would the project cost them. You're mind is blank!!!! Well I'm like that alot of the time. I don't want to over charge and i sure don't want to under charge myself for alot of work that is gonna kill me in the end. I'm not sure of everybody's level in the art game so this maybe just for the newbie artist out there.
