I gotta admit, you do some nice work Alien...You could always just do freelance stuff. Like just set up a website and charge per artwork, or color or whatever. Kind of like a marketing thing where you produce pictures for other companies. Put up a portfolio of different stuff you did. Try and get some small local company to let you design something for them (for free at first) and let the word spread that you have that on the side.
I'm a Graphic Design Major, and I'm telling you right now you could do freelance work for a designer right away @ $15-25/hr and easily work your way up to $50-60/hr. With only a year of school under my belt I made $15/hr for a catalogue. You seem to have a real talent with photoshop.
How long did each of these images take you? Did you use Photoshop? Which version?
I guess I put about an hour to an hour and half on each image. But I was watching a hockey game at the same time, so... I had to dig pretty deep into the FedEx website before I found logos I could use also. I think that took more time than manipulating the images!
I am learning to use Photoshop 7 right now, but I am very familiar with Paint Shop Pro (poor man's photoshop). I kind of bounce between the two programs right now until I figure out how to do everything in Photoshop that I can do in PSP. I can tell that PS7 is waay more powerful than PSP, but the learning curve is holding me back.
And, yeah I did the UPS truck on HondaSUV.com's home page... it's here also under the 2005 Honda SUT thread.
