Don’t make a habit of working for free. Without money, you don’t get to make more art. Try to always work for something, even if that something is the chance to do work that pays. But be very careful here, because it can be easy to set a bad precedent that you don’t value your work. And if you don’t, neither will anyone else. So, charging what you’re worth begins with the belief that you’re worth what you charge.
- also note that most chances of “more work” never materialize so be super careful about that
