    That depends a LOT on the country. Norway doesn't even have a specific minimum wage.
    We do have certain tariffs and standards in all the different industries, though, partly to prevent wage dumping and hiring cheap foreign labor, but we don't have an actual minimum wage.

    (Addendum: average hourly wage for relevant graphical work seems to linger around 24 USD, possibly a little bit higher, in Norway. That includes freelancers...)

    Yes, well, good art is expensive, it takes real effort to produce it & years to become talented enough to produce great art.

    My artist asks $40 for a character drawing along with its 8 facial expressions. That's worth the efforts, I guess.

    For a good artist $40 for a character drawing and 8 facial expressions ... seems like an extremely good price (depending on size of drawings)

    My friend artist asks $20 for a single full body character. But it takes 2 to 3 weeks for her since she's totes busy and sometimes canceled or refused... I kind of pity her... or maybe I just fall for her...

    @MushReen 40$ is an extremely good price. They probably spend a few hours on it, probably around 4ish or more (depending on if it's full body, if it's cel or soft shaded, ect.). That's like 10$ an hour.

    I agree. A lot of people don't realize how long art takes. Here the minimum wage is around 11.25$/hour that's 8.85USD. Making a character & coloring it will take me several hours. Making a char walkin' Sprite can take me from 3 to 10 hours. :(

    alot of times the people placing a comis make minimum wage, and so it is a balancing act of what one can afford and what one needs.
