Yes, I worked on Deep Impact. Reasonable? to me it is, but honestly, most people in this industry can't afford my work. I have a $1000 minimum and a 7 month wait.

The problem is that you dont take pride in your work, you take pride in yourself. This is mettalic skulpting, its 3 dimensional, its not engraving, because engraving is done only on the surface. Mettalic ckulpting was done a long time ago, but thewy sure as hell didnt charge as much as you. You have too much pride in yourself and not in your work, thats why you charge so much. Its amazing work nonetheless. Can it be chromed? How do they clean all the creaks and cracks?

you got to pay to play...

some folks pay $4k for a paint job others are well over 11k, you get what you pay for..if i had anything that needed engraving i would pay that price...one of a kind work and a type of art work that is lost and replaced by machines

Well when you look at it that way, but I really like the idea, it really depicts an image, not just a design like regular engraving or pinstriping.
