I am a newbie to the game design world. I am currenlty trying to attend the Art Institute of Pittsburgh to get my Bachelor's degree in Game Art and Design. I mainly do 2D illustrations, but I can bend to 3D model illustrations (given time). I am very passionate about what i do. To prove so, I have been drawing for about 14 years and counting. As far as fees go, I do not charge a whole lot, though it depends on the task at hand. I'm not going to charge anyone an arm or a leg, but im not going to be Mr. cheapo. I do do give input as to the task of which I'm given.
