What to charge?

What would be agood price to charge someone for a model with 3 or 4 different normal maps and skins? Its just a plain character, has to be 1500 polygons or less, the normal maps make up for the lack of detail.

Bill them depending on how long it takes you to build and finish it, and charge them about $25-30 per hour?

If I did that they would end up paying a fortune, since making normals takes me friggen ages, I'm not fast enough wih the high poly work

p.s. little off topic- is anyone experienced with sites like turbosquid? anyone have any items for sale, sold anything on sites like these.
If so, do you get your money straight away, how much % do they take, do you make much sales etc.

Remember that with turbosquid, the artists rely on selling a number of the same model, so they price accordingly.
