I think this is a topic that should probabaly be discussed, at least a little. Perhaps a lot of people are unaware of the idea, since it feels like the norm to have set rates here. I dont mind if you're for, or against, but its definately important. Most jobs, around the world, charge hourly, so maybe its about time we started with petsite work too. Hm. Artists - Do you charge hourly? If so, care to explain the process? Do you have set rates on items, hourly rates on backgrounds? I personally keep to set rates on items as I know how long they take me, but with environments I'm still quite unsure but I know they're over the $100 mark as the ones I'm currewntly working on take me days of work. D: Buyers - What are your thoughts? Do you think charging hourly is a pain? I see myself getting irked charging this way, as I don't like to change my price half way through - Its never the fault of the buyer so I dont feel I should put additional money on top.
