With the Templates you can get you own touch within my art and figure out how things work.
I usually charge a little donation for artworks that are very complicated to make. But i try to free my time for things that I personaly like. So don´t make the mistake to just make logos and edits for others, try making something you like and post it so you get more attention from paying clients.
Just do it
Create your own design and be creative, don´t be shy if something might look bad or ugly. Just try around with different settings.
the first few weeks are a pain in the ass. You have to watch hundreds of tutorials to get the clue what design is all about and what design is and what it´s not. But after some time you get big progresses in your design ability. Just learn and do your homeworks.
