    Default Looking for an artist

    I want a 16 x 20 inch poster of a panel I saw in a comic book. I don't feel like scanning it now but it is from when Cable was with Hope escaping Bishop. It's the one where Stryfe shows up in his telekinetic bubble and slams down around X-Force. Just wondering how much someone would charge to make this for me and in what medium they would make it. I would really prefer a good artist so it looks similar to the panel but much bigger. I'm guessing I probably won't be able to afford it because it would take some time to make but I'm just getting a feel for it and maybe I'll stay in touch and get it done when I have some more money.
    Thanks guys.

    That's a though one, I am not an artist so I can't help, your best chance will be to go to a comic con 3 day event, you can find an artist there who would draw it for you.

    Hi.
    I can help with that if you want such pic as digital 16*20.
    You can make print of it.

    Just so you have a sense of (price) scale, pencilers for "big" publishers (Marvel DC Image Dark Horse etc) start at around $100 a page. Lower than that and we're talking indie wages. Generally speaking. Generally a page is a day's work, though it can definitely go longer.

    Inks are usually a good bit cheaper, maybe half that, on average. No idea about coloring.

    Pushing the price down is the fact that you only want a single panel - artists love splash pages because you only have to design and render the one panel; a page is much less work that way.

    In other words, don't pay any more than $150 for finished inks. And set out to pay a good deal less if you aren't getting "big three" quality.

    Warning: my info's pretty old so don't quote me (haha).

    Tracing and reselling original art? I'd do it for $50 but my lawyer would want $10,000 or so for the lawsuit.
