Hi, folks. Since one of you asked, and got startled by prices, here's the reality: a professional artist works for at least $80 an hour. Rights must be negotiated or clarified. No professional artist will do work stolen from another copyright.
This came in at $1500: http://donnabarr.blogspot.com/2008/09/hack-hack-hack.html
And comics pages START at $150 for black and white and $250 for color. This may or may not include shipping, handling and insurance.
Going to an obviously professional artist and expecting them to work for the ridiculously low prices you might offer an amateur and think you can get away with is, to say the least, NOT COOL.
And if you're charging cheap for your work, that's your fault, not mine.
You get what you pay for.
