I began drawing portraits 3 years ago, i guess i can call it 'the talent just came in me'...and now i see a lot of people want me to draw for them, and pay money for it, the only problem is that i just don't know HOW MUCH a drawing of mine should cost? How much for a 'single-person portrait' ; 'two-person portrait', etc...Here's a picture of my drawings, maybe it'll help u deciding for the price :). Thank u

Guessing you're American so i'll do this in dollars.
I normally charge anything from $8-15 an hour depending on the difficulty of the reference and how tight i'm feeling :lol:
For a 20 hour portrait you could charge anywhere from $150-$250..

Really depends on what you feel they're worth, you could try for $300+ but the likelihood is they're refuse the initial estimate and you wont be drawing anything. Your work is good so I wouldn't price yourself too high or too low.
