So our newest contributor was kind enough to let me re-post his journal here for your reading pleasure:
"Generally, the good graphic novels fetch $100 - $300 per page, although professionals who have been in the industry for a long time can command as much as three times that amount. In fact, one elite illustrator commanded as much as $1,000 a page (on a 22-page comic book)! Most of the popular titles that artists, like David Cassaday, work on are monthly issues, which end up providing him with a six-figure salary. The back-end royalties on merchandise, trade paperbacks and movie royalties are also generous."
"In 2008, Sean Jordan, founder of Army Ant Publishing, claimed established freelance comic book artists were paid anywhere from $220 to $4,400 per book project, which breaks down to $

Just to answer a few FAQs. Commissions at this stage are going to average around two weeks for completion due to page work I am doing for publishers.
If you do not want you commission posted on my DA page or to have it watermarked to prevent downloading LET ME KNOW! Most individuals want there commission posted here for maximum exposure. IF YOU DO NOT REQUEST TO HAVE YOUR PIC WATERMARKED OR NOT POSTED, IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE POSTED HERE.
This time also will vary depending on the size of the commission and the amount of commission work I have lined up. All delivery times are estimated.
If you request sketches of the commission before the drawing is done, It will delay completion time while waiting on approval to complete the work. This may mean that your work may be moved back to the next batch.
Design work will cost more and will also delay the time of completion.
For pagework, sketches will be sent before penciling of a page. The penciled page will be sent before inking or coloring. Any adjustments or corrections must be made before inking a coloring. You cannot un-ink a page.
The original artwork becomes my property unless the commissioner has worked out the terms to purchase the original art.
Regular Commission rates are listed above
Original artwork in my gallery is for sale (if I haven't sold it already). Inquire to me if interested in a particular piece for pricing.
