Pricing for scribbles, thumbnails, sketches etc. are mostly included in base prices, but if the commission is sketching only, I calculate 22% to 45% of the minimum price. So at most cases, that would be around 100 EUR to 200 EUR.

If the client is not able to pay the full price upfront, he has the opportunity to pay in monthly or quarter year rates, which gives him more control over his financials.
Usually, I charge 50% upfront of the price before work starts. After the project is successfully finished, the other 50% are due upon delivery.

Prices are not fixed and shall remain negotiable, but for high quality work there needs to be fair and proper payment. All the price dimensions mentioned above are to be understood according to costs of living. I do this business professionally for a living and not as a hobby or sideline. Therefore, I cannot accept any work offerings for free or for dumping prices.
