Hey I'm just tossing some personal piece of advice out there, m'kay? When you are looking to commission an artist and ask their price, if its out of your budget or something you aren't willing to pay, just tell the artist thank you for the information and you'll keep them in mind. It is generally kind of rude to tell them their prices are too high or that what they charge is a lot. Some won't get offended, but plenty of others would take high offense to it... Remember that, we artists charge what they feel their time and hard work is worth. A lot of effort is going into making this good art. So just keep that in mind please. Because even commissioners need to have a good rep if they expect artists that want to work for them!
