    Hello. I am an artistic "Jack of All Trades" in many respects. Mainly though, I focus on animation and game development. My skills lie heavily in Adobe Creative Suite Programs, especially Flash and Photoshop. I have done a little paid web development with flash based sites and a lot of freelance animation and game design. I recently sold a game that received upwards of 600,000 views total over the various sites it was hosted on. The game is called Color Theory. My rate is low and I do good quality work fast. I am up for anything.

I will get you a speed drawing animation, of anything you want for only $20 per hour. Other gigs use the software we invented, so order from the pros who created the software. This video gains your viewers attention and makes sure that they get the message. You don't wanna miss out on this one. All we need is a short script that is straight to the point, or a description of what you want the video to be about. State if you want music on the video, or if you want a voice over or even both. Send images of your logo or design and we will do the rest. Note that we will need you to provide your own voice over. ORDER NOW, and get a high quality video that you'v always wanted

    Germany - Last active: 08/04/2014 - Tests: 1

    I'm a little allrounder. I've got some experience with drawing (on paper or with vectors), creating animations with flash, designing GUIs. I'm familar with coding too, especially with Flash ActionScript 3. In fact I've been working since 4 years on a bigger indiegame title, which will release this year. It's a turn-based isometric combat game. I've written some kind of a game SDK for this, including world editor, scriping engine, gui framework and more. There are also smaller projects, where I could improve also my graphical skills and try out new coding techniques. All at all I would say I'm pretty into visual narrative and interactive content - no matter if it is conceptualized by myself or by other people. I like to realize things.
