I am struggling to get my art career going. I didn’t go to college for this, everything I know is from high school or self-taught.
I have a new client that wants a 50in x 80in canvas painting of a samurai. I’m not sure this is something I can do, never painting on anything that big and I am still practicing drawing samurais. I am worried because this is a lot of money he will be giving me to make him this and i am not sure I am the right person for the job, but i don’t know anyone else who could replace me, what do i do?
Edit: I also have no idea how to handle pricing. I can make good works of art but I need a lot of time. I’ve charged by the hour before and asked for less money because I wasted too much time, and felt awful asking for an absurd amount of money for something that I didnt believed was really worth that much.
I am self taught mostly, no college, how on earth do I handle payment!?
