JB -- just curious. The commission request listed the characters wanted, so I assume you charge by the character (as most artists do) and then charge for a background (as most do). Then there's charges for pencil or inking or coloring, etc.

The request just sort of told you to have the chracters fighting dinosaurs (plural) -- was this an additional charge element to draw dinosaurs, even though it was The Savage Land?
I just ask since I can see people asking for commisison scenarios to get "free" elements -- "Please draw Superman protecting the crowd from Lex Luthor's energy blast and Darksied fighting Green Lantern catching debris to stop it from falling on the innocent bystanders".
There is a flat base rate, which varies with the size of the commission -- 11x17, 18x24, 20x30, 30x40. That rate includes, if I remember correctly, six figures/characters. The backgrounds are included, unless the customer gets wildly specific. There is an additional charge for each figure/character over the basic six. On cover recreations/reimaginings, the logo and other cover dress count as a figure.
Many times I throw in additional stuff for free, if it fits the drawing. Basically tho, what you ASK for you PAY for.
Get in touch with Jim Warden for the full details.
