Default freelancing

If you are freelancing in the 3d field whats the least amount you should take for a 3d project like for instance making a 3d book cover.

All depends on your skill level and how much time it's going to take you to do it.

Theres no hard and fast rules to it

C = How much you should charge.

A) How much would you work for per hour? $5? $50? $500?

B) How long will the job take?

A + B = C

If the client doesn't like or agree with "C" then teh job isn't worth doing (unless theres some other benefit to it, fun for example).

Again, it all depends on YOU, how much do YOU value YOUR time and YOUR skills.

I 'm not going to be able to tell you how much to charge based of your at an intermediate level, that dosent really mean much, intermediate to me might be basic to you, or advanced....

If you want to figure out how much you should charge, start cheap even free, and then go from there.
