JL Conceptual Enterprises by JamesLedgerConcepts JL Conceptual Enterprises by JamesLedgerConcepts
All painted in Photoshop from scratch. Made it up as I went along. This image is a personal project, so doesn't belong to anyone else, i.e. a client. To buy the full license to this image would cost 60 ($100).

JL Conceptual Enterprises (circa 2010) - part of the JLC Group.

A company that specializes in construction. Now the ONLY construction company left on Earth.

This image took about 5 days to complete. The cost for an image like this from scratch would be 400 to 500 ($640 to $800).

In my recent job as an unskilled worker at a special school I earned 130 per day for the council. My friends are all graphic designers, earning 300 per day doing freelance. An established concept artist I know did a few characters for a local design business and charged 1000 per character, which took 3 days for each character to be completed. A recent job I applied for paid 200 per day for a concept art role (Rare, based in the UK). An agency contacted me today and said the going rate in the business is about 180 per day (intermediate level), working in-house for a large company, but over 200 for the very large companies. A senior concept artist would earn more.
I am repeatedly told I charge too low, by professionals.
The reason why it seems so much on here is that a lot of teenagers can charge a lot less, naturally. Also, the internet has opened up the opportunity for artists from the developing world to get involved. They obviously charge microscopic amounts because $1 US dollar is worth about $16 in say, the Philippines, meaning they actually earn a higher rate than most of us because of the exchange rate etc.
My rates are low generally, but there will always be people willing to do work for peanuts. If I did that my 900 ($1400) monthly living costs just would not get paid and I would have to work for minimum wage somewhere. The high cost of living in the west forces us to charge more, but only businesses can afford the work of course. I am just not in a position to charge any less, even if I wanted to. MY equipment cost me 3000 and I spend 14 hours every day learning art. No one should do all that for free or nearly free.
