Now the big question.....
Newagemugen uses a universal pricing method from the graphic design industry.
This method is known as the "freelance graphic design cost calculation method".
This is the universally accepted method used by freelance graphic designers when quoting jobs for clients.
An Example of this method can be found here: https://designpickle.com/graphic-design-cost-calculator/
Via this method, the total cost of your commission is calculated using 3 variables:


Variable 01 - Hourly rate
Variable 02 - total Number of Designs required
Variable 03 - Total Number of hours required per design

The formula is:   COMMISSION COST = VAR01 x (VAR02 x VAR03)

Next we will look at each of the 3 variables in detail to give you a full, detailed
explanation of our commission pricing system to help you make the best informed decision on your project.

As of 2020, the recommended MUGEN commission rate is $18.00 USD per hour.
Is this expensive? Good question. Glad you asked!
You will find this is extremely low, and almost 50% lower than the USA standard industry graphic design rate.
But don't take our word for it!
To give you an idea on international rates, check the examples below:


The official US hourly rate as of 2020 was $30.28 USD/hr

The official Canadian Hourly rate as of 2020 was $26.17 USD/hr

The Official UK hourly rate as of 2020 was $22.27 USD/hr.

Design? what do you mean by "design?".
In the graphic design industry, the term "design" is used divide a large project into sub-parts that need to be created individually.

In the case of specific MUGEN commissions such as screenpacks/fullgames, a design would refer to each individual menu/select/intro/vs/fight screen, or any interface/menu screen that is required within the project.

The number of designs required will vary depending on your commission type, and the complexity of your project.
When discussing the project, you must specify everything you require require so the designer can calculate how many designs are needed to complete your request.

For example, a fully complete Mugen fullgame/screenpack is a large commission that could require up to 19 designs or more.

This variable is used to calculate both the MINIMUM cost and TOTAL cost of your commission.
By default, when doing your initial quote, we charge all designs out at the base rate of 1 HOUR per design.
For example, if you required 15 designs, without working out the no.of hours required per design, we can calculate the absolute minimum cost via our formula as follows:

VAR01 x (VAR02 x VAR03) = COMMISSION COST
hourly rate x (no.of designs x no.of hours req) = Commission cost
$18 USD x (15 x 1) = $270 USD.


To simplify this even further, this means that a Mugen commission that required 15 designs, would cost a minimum of $270 USD to create.
When discussing your project, always try and sway the client to keep each design achievable within a 1 hour design.
If a particular design requires a higher number of hours to complete, always let the client know this and suggest alternatives where applicable.

Hopefully by reading through this guide, you have a clear understanding of Mugen commission prices and how they are calculated.
