Question by Antwonn: Animation Vs. Graphics (Youtube) Vs. Web Design VS. Edits(FX?)(OCE)?
I was just wondering what should I do out all of these. These can help me with Money and help me with my free time if i am not doing anything. So as the title says:
Animation: For the gamers, I somewhat want to do Minecraft animations as thats what i saw that most. If there is any other animations that I can do please tell me as I want to see other animations. At the moment all i have is Cinema 4D and Maya for animations. The thing is i want to spend a lot of time doing whatever i learn until people start asking for my service’s and want help and what not.
Graphics aka GFX: alright so my friends do Graphics on YouTube (/AmpedArtworks and /callmeratedx) and they are so busy to help me with graphics at all. So I have Photoshop Cs5, CS5.5 and CS6 just to work with. If you can provide any tutorials or Tips on Graphics please let me know.
Web Design: So i already started web design i know HTML and what not a bit of CSS and learning CSS3 and HTML5 but im reading a book and taking my time. There isnt much to explain about Web Design, just maybe some tutorials, but NOT THE EASY STUFF. A little hard stuff. I already know what im doing
Lastly : EDITS (OCE’s etc.) Alright so I see videos on Youtube for ex: FaZe clan and they have a editor that does either a Montage or OCE. Now I was just wondering what do i have to do, just to learn how to do this. This is something that i want to learn because they look cool and the effects. If you like EDITS please tell me what program I should use the best and some Tutorials Thanks!
SOO, I’m not really sure which should I do because they all seem really good but at the same time they are all hard and take time. I am really thinking about doing the edits as they seem easier.
My Question: Choose which one I should do, provide a couple tutorials or a site that has it in order. If YouTube then IT HAS TO BE A PLAYLIST. Then if you can explain why I should do that specific one.

I am a little similar to you. I’m in the process of finding my niche as currently I do all of the above (web design, motion graphics, video editing and graphic design).
I say go for the edits and vfx. That will allow you to use more of your skills and interests as compared to the others. You do graphics, animation and a little bit of web coding when it comes to embedding videos etc.
It’s also the most rewarding, people love video’s and when you finish an edit you feel a good sense of gratification.
My favourite software for this work is Adobe Creative Suite CS4+, you can get the production premium or master collection bundle. Lots of AE tutorials on YouTube and sites like videocopliot.net. Psdtuts.com and noupe.com for photoshop and illustrator tutorials.
