Hi zeuslight, the link below might help with pricing:

To do what I think your asking is just a bit of a tall order as it is time consuming as well as being quite difficult but all the best anyway.

Sorry but this is my best effort.

Bog.

Zeuslight, pricing is what the market bears. A gallery, if you can get one to display your work will price it for you based on what they think will sell. Many galleries get a commission as much as 40% so make sure you are OK with the balance to you. If you submit to competitions to sell then look at other work pricing as that is the client that the competition draws. When you win completions, get published, or sell a bunch you will establish a market and then slowly increase your asking price until your sales dry up or cease. I priced my first sale, as I recall, by assuming min. Wage x the time the piece took plus the cost of materials. Once your market is established I think you will find you can raise prices and I think many of your buyers will become repeat customers and actually will like the fact your art is increasing in value. That's how my history stacked up but probably different for each artist. I assume you were asking about originals here and not the print world which I handle differently. Grandaddyearl
