Questions on a commission
It's been a long time since I've stopped by here, good to see there are still a few active posts.
I have a question for those of you who have done commissions. A guy I know saw some of my map sketches and was apparantly really impressed because he wants me to paint a map on one of the walls in his house. My question is what would be a good ballpark figure to quote on something of that scale? He's a sort of acquaintance of mine from school, and I don't want to give him an exorbitant price to do it...I think it would be really fun, but I can't afford to do it for free or for too little
Has anyone here done that kind of thing before? I'm not sure of the wall size yet, if it isn't that big I might suggest putting it on canvas, that way he could keep it if he ever moves...
What you are really doing is painting a mural and that is a fairly common thing. Fortunately I did a quick Google-fu and found this website complete with a chart based on size and some other factors: International Mural Pricing chart
