Indie Company Needs Quote Help Please

on: May 11, 2016, 09:45:09 pm
Hello,

The company I work for is creating a twin-stick shmup with heavy inspiration from the SNES era of gaming. Our combat is similar to Pocky & Rocky, and the RPG elements are similar to Chrono Trigger.

We have been working with artists locally and would like to see if the rates here compare to the rates we are paying for sprites.

Please let us know how much you would charge for the following sprite:

Running Animation
(Terribly sorry that I only have the gif for now, if I need to readdress this post because of it, let me know)


If you could list your hourly rate, and how many hours you think this would take you, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

May I ask, how many frames within that running animation?

I'd assume it's around $30 - 60 ?
Based on the complexity of the animation and fluidity, I think it would be closer to the upper end of that estimate. I may be off with my calculations.

Is this an hourly rate or the total cost of the sprite you are estimating?

I was thinking more along the lines of the Animation itself.
So hourly I'd say something more like $25 - 30 / hr

So you estimate this animation would take upwards to 2 hours at $25-30/hr.

Thanks for the info!
