A page rate is something I would rather discuss with the artist on an individual basis. I'm not going to post a static page rate, because not every artist deserves to be paid the same. I pride myself on paying well for quality work.
Jason's question isn't out of line here, if you read the instructions on the Index page for this forum, they don't accept backend jobs, which means promised payment after publication. It's different for Marvel, DC, IDW, we know they pay. Many of us have been offered payment and never received it for hard work, conned by people like Josh Hoopes (search him on Google). Writers have been conned by him as well. So please don't take it the wrong way, we just want to make sure we do get paid for a job we do. Most pro artists ask for half upfront or pay after every 1-6 pages. We put a watermark on a low res JPG and don't send the high res until paid. You can always go to DeviantArt if you are not satisfied with this, it's really part of the rules here:
"**NO POSTING FOR FREE WORK!! INCL. BACK END DEALS** "
And most of us do research the emails, so we know if you usually don't offer paid jobs, another reason we might get skeptical.
The page is very nicely drawn but when I researched email I found this in "Collaborations and Non Paying Projects":http://www.conceptart.org/forums/archiv ... 08132.html
