id say think of time, the effort and what your doing. min wage is 10 dollars an hour,

if your only selling them for 100 points your not getting anywhere. if you did 100 per hour, estimated time to draw being 5 hours a piece, you should do 500.

just an idea~

I do consider the minimal wage factor, but I work on commission for art, and since there isn't much value to my art yet, it won't profit as much for each work, but I still do want to get a Paypal set up since I am now able to make a someone okay amount of profit now and it's better than nothing but yeah

well, i mean think of it as an estimate of how long you usually work on things, counting how long it takes to draw something, draw a few things and time it, take that time and round them and make that the pay.

I'd easily pay at least 1,000 points for one.

I think that might be a little much for just a bust shot personally?? But maybe if I started doing these in fullbody then yeah I'd probably charge a lot more than my normal commissions

200-400 points/hour seems like a good going rate, although maybe start with something like 500 if still experimental? :]
