I know there are a lot of these type questions floating around, but nothing for the specifics that I require.

Anyways, basically my sister and her non-profit want to hire me to do some designs of their mascot that they could use on their website, in vlogs, on merchandise, etc. I support their site's view and I am happy to undercut my work a little as a donation for their cause.

However, I don't know what to charge. I've only done private furry commissions. I've charged very little for my work, and I have since "quit", and haven't done any in months. The drawings would be in a "Hello Kitty" or other Sanrio character quality. Just a very simple character, flat colored, in various poses with props and/or costumes.

Here is something relatively simple to get an idea, minus the shading:

What would a good quote be for a single drawing of this nature, and for how it would be used? Even if you'd only have a basic idea that would be fine. Right now I have no clue at all what to charge and I don't want to start spouting numbers at them that are either too low or too high. (Even if you're not sure how much of a discount would be appropriate, I'm willing to approximate from there as long as I have a ballpark.)

Thanks so much for the help!!

I have no clue on what you should tell them though a lot of posts normally say Base Price+Hours Spent+Contract (contract as in handing over rights to them through contract and for how long they can use this for commercial use, what they can use it on e.g. Shirts, Wallets, Backpacks, etc - you also might want to mention if you get a cut on the profits they make from merchandise if it isn't all non-profit I really dunno how it'd be handled in that case).

I was gonna say something else but I forgot, lol, I'll edit this if it comes back to me.
