Can't say about this particular option, but I've seen artworks with this level of detail and rather detailed backgrounds being sold for $60, so that should be some sort of landmark, I think.
Sadly, I can't point you to any of such examples, as they've been posted in the Discord chat I currently left, and I didn't really care for them back then. I'm also not sure what their resolutions were; chances are they were not really large, but that's a barbarously wild guess.
(do note that time and effort wasted on artwork is one of the most subjective aspects in artwork; I wouldn't expect two artists to waste an equal amount of time and effort on identical artworks, so you should keep that in mind too)

I would say 15 to 25. It all depends on how complex the character is. Like her, I would think 20 to 25. She looks amazing and I like this style a lot.

I say $15 best. Points, I’m not sure. XP

Anyone who tells you under 25 is ignorant.

Perhaps people just don't think I'm at that level of skill to charge that much yet ^^;

Well. How long do you spend on this level of quality?

So then really 25 is too low, but art being where it is in pricing is be asking that minimum. I believe you should always be working for minimum wage if not more, but if it's secondary income it's not as important.

it's secondary income for now but I would really like to make it full time one day. 
I guess I have a long way to go before I charge that amount for it.

Due to the time it took to make I'd say about 15$, or maybe 12$ just to get started
I think if you go any higher it might be a bit hard to get commissioners (tho I honestly feel you should be able to charge more, people can be cheep sometimes and want good art for like 100 :points:)

Hrmm....I would say in the region of 700-850 :points: ? If you want to compare to the likes of a fully shaded and detailed piece then I would say that's reasonable for a painting like this x'D Beautiful work however :heart:

it took around 9 hours of my time to do this.
some how $8 doesn't cover the time I took making this one, honestly I charge $10 for sonic x shading and that takes me around 4-5 hours depending.
I want to be fair to people paying but I also need to be fair on myself.

Ah- sorry I just charge a bit lower than this x'D Might be my own way of doing things I apologise, I didn't mean to insinuate it isn't worth a lot, it is beautiful work as I said. 
I'm sure you'll figure something out ^^

Everyone has their own way of charging.
I feel like I should try to make it fair for people buying, however I have to be fair to myself. If I charge low I'll not only get swarmed but I'll also get very little for days of work. 
It's not easy to get right :/
