Sometimes I think pricing is the most difficult part of my job.
I base my prices on
1) Cost of materials
2) amount of time and skill it takes to make a particular piece
3) cost of shipping.
It is impossible to give an exact price for a piece yet to be made.
Obviously, size makes a difference; larger images take more time. Images that I can copy from a reference photo without making any changes are the least amount of work. Images that involve combining separate reference photos or adding elements of any kind add to the time needed and increase the price. Time spent researching an image can add to the price.
Please contact me for pricing on a particular project,
and I'll give you an estimate to the best of my ability.
