Salary / pricing is a bit of a touchy subject - it's a bit like a company phoning up their direct competitor, and asking what their profit margin is.

It's also based on so many different things - from your own personal skills, to how much you like/hate working for a client, to the living costs in your particular part of the world. Only you know what your 'basic subsistence' level is, and how fast you can complete a particular project.

However, since I know that's a really annoying answer:

A junior in the UK with little experience could be earning 15-20K (sterling) per year full time. If you are freelancing, you won't be working all the time, so the rate will go up to compensate for this.

At the other end of the scale, VERY experienced artists on short freelance contracts can occasionally be paid as much as 400UKP / day.
