anyway if anyone wants my full portfolio I do post any art I do weather a masterpiece or a little doodle on my tumblr page.
After viewing your entire portfolio, I think I realize semi-accurately how talented you really are.
For you to be offering your services for such a low cost is very nice and I don't think people realize the range of ideas you can make come to life.
PS I'd like to know what schooling you had and what you recommend for graphic design and sketching like that (and how long it took) because I'm very tempted going to college for that field
And what programs are used for what, if I'm not asking too much. :p
For design and the graphic arts i did 3 years of school. not counting all the art and design classes in highschool. To be a good artist it is very important to start young, It can take years just to get the visual eye to do this type of work.
I started with Digital multimedia at Fanshawe cholledge in london ontario though I would recommend graphic design instead which is also 2 years, digital multimedia is more technical with web development and other things and graphic design is more art based and has a little hint of web dev and the likes touched in the course at that school. and for the graduate course of one year I took 3D character Annalist which is where I learned animations and character design.
Now thats 3 years and thats what I took though I would recommend just taking the 3 year course of Video Game development where you get everything above and more crammed into 1 Extremely intricate course. But if you want the fast and hardest way. Practice like hell make good art and skip all the courses, make a portfolio and just take the 3D character animations course. most schools will let you skip the required courses you need to take their if you have the skills and can prove it.
Now that school is out of the way.
My recommendations for Doing Graphic arts are Photoshop CS6 now a days that version has little support and you can grab it for free if you are resourceful, its also one of the best versions in my regards with no bugs and an infinite amount of online resources to learn to use it (PS it can also paint 3D models).
For making Logos, pop arts and other vector based imagery I would suggest Adobe Illustrator CS6 also can grab for free. This program is fun and a bit more complicated though if you get it you can make some professional stuff.
For Making 3D (Not sharing) but skulptris and blender are two powerfull 3D programs that can be as good as some pro software out their if you work at it. their just more complicated and less user friendly I think.
They are also free downloads with no restrictions for marketing.
Hope that answered your question.
And yes 6$/hr is pretty degrading in a sence the amount I should be making in my field at the momment in my city should be around 36-40$/hr I am giving such a low price out of charity and so i have something to do.
My personality is well reflected in my order "The Keepers of The Light"
