How much would my manga cost?
« on: November 30, 2017, 05:05:13 AM »
So, basically, how much would it cost for me to get Blodtorstig or Protector Number Thirteen(readable in the Manga Creations forum) drawn? I would prefer full color but black and white would be fine too. At the very least, could you tell me which would be cheaper? Thanks for your time and information.

5-10 USD on the lowest possible end, 100-150 USD on the highest possible end (can be higher), per page, no color.

Full colored pages can easily be double or even triple that amount.
PM me if you wanted a critique. It takes time for one to come to you, so please be patient.

If you wanted it to be public or private, do tell me.

Let's see. if your manga is 30 pages not counting covers. for 5-10 USD a page it's going to cost you 150-300 USD

I saw a guy do 20 full colored pages a month for 600 USD and another doing full colored Volume for 2000.

Just expect $50 a page.

This might sound like a lot but remember a side job like Uber or Lyft can pay for your manga. Basically, you work 3-4 hours for someone to illustrate your manga per day.

I hope, at least in my case, my rough draft pages will serve as a guide so when I hire someone, they won’t charge so much since the layout is already done.

I think colored would be more expensive and time consuming. I think it might be better if go black/white since that is what manga usually is. Except for the color spread part.
