I am starting a new venture called GotTooned.com that will offer live digital cartoon caricature services to the masses for events, as well as individual commissioned caricatures. Here is my question: what would you pay for a digital caricature that you could use for your facebook/twitter photo, and/or print wherever you would like?
I am trying to gauge where my price points should be for individual caricatures. Attached is a sample of my work. I have been drawing my whole life and think that this would be a great way to get to draw for a living while working on other pursuits.
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
Devin, I agree with Dan and Mary - that you may experience a larger return by marketing yourself to draw caricatures at events. My father is a caricature artist and I believe he charges $100+/hr doing events. If you would like to connect with him to learn more about how he does business, you can find him on http://society6.com/PRESTOONS (society6) or may e-mail him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just in case you are interested in contacting him, I let him know ahead of time and he is cool with it. :) - Alana
I definitely think that's the route I will have to take, Craig. As Dan says, you can make a lot of money selling people what they want. I will have to go the route of offering a higher quality product at a higher price point.
Haha, no worries about dating yourself, I get what you mean. That is definitely part of the plan, but will be in the form of a High-Res PDF that someone can get printed wherever they like. I planned on also offering the option of having me get it printed for the customer at a certain pricepoint, all the way up to having it framed.
