So I found this comment shazams
I’ll be honest… that is pretty disrespectful. Or maybe not that. Maybe it’s just straight up ignorance. 80 isn’t even half of what Nova pays me for a 1-2 minute animation.
It’s because of stuff like THIS that way too many artists are under paid and devalue their work. Because so many people don’t understand the amount of work and time that goes into any art piece. Whether it’s animation or illustration.
I’ll do the math for you so you know why this kinda ticks me off. On average I spend about 30-40 hours for a 1-2 minute animation. Now this video is about 11.5 minutes long so I would most likely spend about 345 hours on it if not more. That would be about 14 days straight if I work with no sleep, breaks, eating, etc. Just working non stop. Now if I only made 80 dollars from this and worked 345 hours I would be making about 0.23 for every hour that I worked.
I’ll be getting your pocket change for an hours worth of work.
This is the problem many artists are faced with. And it is extremely sad and frustrating.
