Thanks. Yes, they want me to make similar illustrations but in a different
style. The magazine prices aren't market conform, that particular magazine
functioned as my "playground" so to speak, so the magazine paid a relatively

will balk at the higher price for this illustration started from scratch but
more that I will give a too low estimate. They agreed immediately at my
estimate for the first illustrations.

will balk at the higher price?
Is that what is giving you problems, or is it the different style you
