I find out lately pretty difficult to value my work on characters. So based on that I have a question for you more experienced artists. How much time do you need to create a AAA character, and to be specific ( I know, different level of details and additional stuff for character will take longer :P ) lets take an simple guy from The Last of Us. Middle age man, shirt, jeans, shoes. Is there any average time for something like this ? Sometimes clients are saying that this will take at least 2 weeks but then we realize that it's more and to be honest I end with shitty salary
So if you would like to share more about time/money stuff on this matter feel free. I appreciate.
