If you have a budget for visuals, I'm more than happy to talk about your project needs.
-- Can I use your work in my video/music/etc project for free?
-- Can I use your work in my video/music/etc project and pay you in attention/traffic/compliments?
-- Any tips for a beginner looking to start making visuals?
Just make a lot of stuff, however you can, for as long as you can, everyday. The parts and pieces to make are all around you and if making visual art is something you can obsess over, then the actual act of making will guide you.
Also learn about animation to whatever extent you are interested in learning about it... also learn After Effects.
