Hola :)

First, you need to decide what exactly you want to create. You should know if you want to do more design stuff or coding stuff (or both). If you feel that you can pull out some good designs, I advice you to create a PSD first. You won’t earn very much from it, but you will raise your design skill on the required level (which can be much higher than your actual level, so it can take a lot of time to get there). Once you have approved PSD, you can code it yourself or make a partnership.

On the other hand, if you are more into coding, then you will probably need to create a partnership right from beginning. Just browse PSD category, search for some nice designs which haven’t been transformed to theme/template yet, try to reach their authors and offer them collaboration proposal.

Please bear in mind that it can easily take months and even years till you create something which will sell good, so be patient and work hard, that’s the only way.

Good luck!
