I can help you. Is it the template stuff (the coding?)? Or is it graphics? I've been working with WP for 6 years so just let me know what you need. :)
My fanart/cover art rules:
1) I'm a pro freelance webdesigner so I may not be able to get the art to you overnight, fanart is free time hobby stuff.
2) I do this for free because I'm a fan first and I like to help other people. Don't take my generosity for granted or I won't do it anymore.
3) I usually charge extra for more than 3 changes, so that's the limit. A huge deal :)

Yep, you can do both. If you're using the main theme - "TwentyTen" - you have to edit the style.css stylesheet in the theme folder. Find the tag like this:

Code: Select all

body, html{
	font-size: 13px;
	margin: 0;
	margin-bottom: 15px;
	background: #BED69C url(images/background.jpg) repeat-x;
}

Of course the above is just an example, it probably won't be EXACTLY the same. There may not even
be a background line so you can just copy mine and paste it into the code. All you have to do after that
is change the # color and the url where the image is, you don't necessarily need the repeat-x element, so you
could just delete it. If you need more help, like explanation of what all of the code means, email me:
angelswings416@yahoo.com
I hope this was of some help to you.
