    Hey Y'all....

    I do graphics.. headers, banners, etc... I'm formally trained in photoshop. Seeing as I'm not making much dough and I have these mad skillz, I'm thinking of offering them up in the services area, but $20 is a steep investment for me, so I thought I'd see what the market looks like here before taking the plunge.

    Here's my question:

    If I offered to make banners/web graphics for $5-$10 each, do you think that there's a market for this service here? See my work here:

    http://slyhoax.com/portfolio/photoshop/


    Can do graphics for blogs/websites/forums/cpa offers...

    I also do slideshows and audio, with ten years experience making music.(samples on that site as well), but that would cost a bit more. Youtube marketing, anyone?

    Note: I won't be doing any work for BHW members until I pay to post in the services offered forum, so please- no PMs asking me to work for you until I take the plunge and fork up the $20 to list in the services offered forum. The last thing I want is to be banned :cool: Also, I really think it would be worth the investment if there's some demand for my services.

    Going by your display pic and then by your skills, I would say "Yes" go for it! If you can deliver great designs then I am sure 5$-10$ is nothing for some BHW'ians here....they are probably giving 5$-10$ each day as paypal fees. So all I could advice you is to go and flaunt your service here and also keep an eye on DP contests..:cow_yello

    I've been designing for more than 6 year, and I'm going to have to disagree with abhi1, your portfolio is very unimpressive. Sorry for sounding like a dick.

    On the other hand, the music was pretty decent.

    i'm sorry no offense but i thought i suck at photoshop and with no formal training, looks like you need more training. Just my 2 cents

    Ok I have no view of the service you are offering so no nasty comments from me. I will just say that there is certainly a market for it here, I'm surprised it isn't offered more in all honesty. Develop your skills and get a BST ad placed, good luck

    I'm sure you well make more then 20$ for sure, But In my experience learning the basics+ is the hardest part ones you got that down its pretty easy to learn everything else so go study some advanced tuts.
