How to estimate price? By time? By picture? By character?

Hi
A customer wants me to animate 5 pictures(png format) with some text on them. The total length is 2 min.

What is the most fair way to estimate the total cost? Should I ignore the length and count by pictures only? 

There are no any layers so I need to split up all objects and characters and redraw if it necessary.
What would you charge for that type of project?
Thank you.

Hi there!

seems like you have several animation gigs already set up, pricing and everything.

And most of your gigs seem to cover longer projects than the one in question.

So my question is: what makes this request so different that you are not sure how to quote?

Because I still doubt about pricing. Sometimes I have a project with 10 pictures and 2 minutes long. Sometimes 5 pictures and 6 minutes long.
Some customers have source files some of them not.
Maybe some of us adjusted proper formula for such orders. 
Thank you!
