But for sorrow although I'm working in the graphic for about 10 years untill

and fees in the graphic field

project and they can send me my fee by the western
2-The best sites and forums to get work and contracts from and advertise my
self through them for free
3- the best gallaries that I can demonistrate and show my scenes photos,
art photos, animation work and models for selling them through them and
4-How to get well known and public in this field to gain contracts and clients
5- emails for clients and companies that allways need graphic jobs and projects

From what I understand the best way to get work is by doing exceptional work. If you can produce something absolutely stellar that is featured on a site like 3DTotal or CGSociety, work will come to you.
With all the freelance sites you are essentially competing with all of India and other foreign markets, and depending on where you live, people who are willing work for a lot less than you.
In my opinion, if you want to make pocket change online, the way to go is with tutorials. (don't expect to make any real money outside of working at a studio). I personally have had far more luck than you with just my one tutorial. Haven't made as much as you yet, but I'm getting there and it's been less than 6 months, not 10 years. You have to make sure it's on a topic that has not been covered anywhere near the extent it should be though. For instance, don't expect people to pay for say another creature sculpting tutorial unless you include some extremely useful information along with it.

I know this sounds harsh, but currently, you just need increase your skill level.
I noticed you do character animation. You clearly have not read any material on the topic and do not seem to have a natural ability for it. Reading stuff like "the animators survival guide" and generally books on the principles of motion should really help you.
Also your skinning seems to be very primititve. Your lighting leaves a lot to be desired, and your special FX are really cheesy.
Your materials are also all wrong. I mean you have a reflective couch...
You are clearly ready to put in a lot of effort, but you really need to learn more. Like on the topics you have already covered.

ok noto be nasty.. your work look nice.. however most of the models that i have seen look like they are of simple design.. i/e chairs.. tables and stuff..
now i've had so many problems getting companies interested in me.. and it seems that the more complex i have gone with my models the more intest i have generate.. so this is what i would suggest..
pick a target group.. i.e. character.. vehicles or enviroments..
and then go to the nth degree.. if you think a piece isn't quite right chances are it isn't.. and therefor you probably need more detail.. whether that is geometry or texture..
anyway.. good luck.. i hope the new year brings something good for you.

Like Neil said, right now the models are quite simple designs.
what i think you have to do, is pick something more complex with a fair amount of detail and give it 110%
Good luck man, and a happy new year btw
