I think what you charge definitley depends on your experience and possibly the quality if your portfolio if you have one. One also has to consider the taxes, expenses,etc. You have to make sure you cover all that or you may end up working for next to nothing. I have about 12 bill codes for my biz so I can break down prjects but I charge the same price whether I'm doing CAD, rendering, or image editing. Also you need to be a little flexible with clients with what you charge too since making a little less is always better than making nothing. You can also charge by the project as opposed to hourly...some clients like that, some don't. As far as your original question, How much would you like to earn a week, month or year and how much do you want to work? Personally, I charge $35/hr but if a job comes along that is pretty big I don't mind shooting them a project price and making a little less. I also put away 30% of every check for the tax man just in case. I hope this little bit of info helps.
