Can someone help me with the code? What images do I need? How can I keep the gradients?
Have mercy Nate, I think you need to know how to build the website if you're creating a freelancing portfolio!
You'll want to crop your gradients out and use them as background images.
It sounds like you need a couple lessons. I'd head over to w3schools and go through their HTML and CSS course: http://w3schools.com/
If you want help on the forum, you're going to have to show us what you've got so far and we can help you from there. Good luck!
Well, I've done one before and it turned out fine. However, the one I did was fairly simple compared to this one. I have learned HTML/CSS and know the basics of it. I'm in the works and taking a web development class at votech school.
