So, for future reference (and my sanity, as I'm starting to feel like a broken record).
1 point = 1 cent in USD.
Please don't ask me if less than 100 points for a digital painting is fair, because that's not even a dollar. You should get $10/h at the very least.
And if you're worried that raising your prices may scare customers away and you feel like you have to charge low prices to even get customers at all...
Then why not work on personal projects?
Pretty much anything that would allow you to do with your time what you want, instead of slaving away at a piece to not even make enough to buy a burger?
Seriously guys, come on.
Drawing is a skill that you have fostered. through blood, sweat and tears.
Please don't give it away as if it's worth nothing.
And while I can not set your prices for you as I don't know how long one piece takes you: at the very least ask for minimum wage.
Value your craft, dammit!

Great article about artist myths
YEAH HI PLEASE READ THIS: http://design.tutsplus.com/articles/10-drawing-myths-that-block-your-progress--cms-23892 As in please read it, don't skim it, it's got such great information on both how to become a better artist and how to treat other artists. TL;DR: Saying "I wish I was as good as you" or "I'll never be as good as you" or something similar is not a compliment. It's a personal lament and many artists can do without it. Thanks.
