Say that I removed the hood from a vehicle and then primed and painted it, and brought that to a painter. I'd want him to finish by adding a design such as the ones below, and then do the clearcoat.

How much should I expect to pay for that?

Thanks!

Whatever you and the artist can agree on.
Doing it in vinyl would be your cheapest route. Some places print on vinyl. (Unlimited possibilities)
You can also have a vinyl place. Cut you out a stencil. Then do it yourself.
LoL 30 years ago I helped a buddy. Free hand tape a bird on his. Using multiple colors. Spent a week doin it. He loved it. I always thought it looked like. A kindergarten construction paper thanksgiving turkey.

the firebird is a decal i believe, a good signwriter can print out stuff very similiar to the last image, then clear over it to protect it, otherwise i reckon youd be looking at between 1500-2000 for it to be airbrushed, maybe more, an old school friend of mine here in tassie charges around $1500 for a basic harley tank mural, and he is apparently cheap!!
