I do not believe that art is valued in Dollars. I believe it is valued in the willingness of the artist to let go of it. If you are not as happy keeping your art as you are selling it, then it is not even worth to you what you ask of others for it. I also believe that beneath discomfort, vulnerability is fundamentally beautiful. So shall I die rich in my own art, a rich man I shall die indeed.
My favorites are creative commissions. I will also do portraits though, which is what most people ask for. All of them are hand drawn in Charcoal on canvas. In the outer economy I charge $30/hr for portraits (drawing), and $60/hr for creative (design & drawing). It's a lot of detail and a lot of work. My most popular products are as follows:
Popular Portrait Size: 18X24"
That's 10hrs of drawing so the price is 1,000Simbi ($300)
Popular Creative Size: 36X48"
That's 45 Design Hours, 45 drawing hours, so the price is 9,000Simbi ($2,700)
If that's too expensive, find someone cheaper, cuz my shit's the shit and it's worth it. Check out the time lapse of my most recent portrait commission:
