    Hey guys,

    I'm a 3D modeller and motion graphics artist. I've been doing Elance but find it frustrating at best. There isn't a good enough system in place to screen potential clients, and everyone bids everyone else into the ground. So you either stand your ground and charge real rates or low-ball like everyone else.

    Anyway, I have my own site set up so that I can start receiving requests for quotes, and I'm getting my portfolio set up. I've also set up a LinkedIn account.

    I guess I'm just looking for general advice. I'll do AdWords once I have everything set up.

    Direct questions to me in turn about Kindle publishing or anything graphics related and I'll do my best to help you out.
