This thread has been really interesting. I've been looking into 3D work regarding character models and animations using blender for my projects. From a designers standpoint I still have trouble figuring out the relationships between the assets I'll require and how I intend to get it all working correctly with the code. I understand the process far more then my skills let me accomplish but I'm still surprised to see some of the prices given for the work provided. Thanks to all who have been more transparent regarding specific costs. The example given above by DesktopDaydreams was perfect, if not shocking to me personally, I'll certainly readjust how I think I'll handle art early on during initial concepts.
