A typical comic artists makes around 50,000 to 60,000 depending on the comic they are making. I would say that many comics are freelance, so they are probably paid per panel or strip. They also may change comics from time to time so that is why many of the comics are more freelance.

Depends. Obviously, the more famous and in demand you are, the better, and the better you are, the more pay. Starting pay can start off for a traditional penciler can start at between 10$ per page and $50 per page, and add another $20 or so if you ink your own pencils. Colorists can be salaried.

The typical entry level comic artist's pay with approximately four years of experience is around 20,000. Most comic artist's are freelanced, where they are paid per page. Work experience, skill level, and who you know in the industry will be large advantages in getting a job with competitive pricing.


Answer by  Darry (3853)

In comics there are writers, outliners, and inkers. Outliners do the actual drawings of comic books and inkers do the colorization. Most of these artists are not paid very well, the upper end's somewhere in the 20-30k range. There are very few artists who make more than 50k per year as there are so many people available for the job.


Answer by  eiryck (847)

This would depend on some aspects like the level of the company that is hiring vis a vis its ranking in the industry of comics and animation, the caliber or forte of the artist and his rating in the industry circle in terms of how famous are his works of comics.

The actual pay for this job is really, really low unless you make it beg. Even getting on any payrole is hard unless you'll be an inker.
