One of my plans with my book is to commission pieces of art of scenes, characters etc., from other indie creators. I was thinking that as I want to commission as many artists as possible, it might be fun to have every artist do something no larger than ACEO/ATC print (2-3"). Or at the most, 6x4" (I know ACEOs are tiny).
I’m working out budgets, so I’d love to know from everyone who’s a professional visual artist: what would you charge for an ACEO-sized piece and what would you charge for a 6x4" piece? I want to hear from fine artists, cartoonists, digital artists, everyone! I know it’s hard to know for sure, but an estimate would be a huge help.
I would also be looking at compensating for the amount of time it takes to read the book and plan your piece, of course (book is about 55k words, YA fantasy if anyone wants to do an actual estimate).
Thank you in advance!
