How/where to sell pencil drawn potrait?

July 31, 2009 1:13pm CST
Hi there mylotters, Recently, I started drawing portraits of people, celebrities to be exact by using pencils. And now, I'm wondering, can we make money by selling our hand drawn portrait online? Has anyone of you mylotters has done this business before? And do you know any other website (other than, because I just joined this site) where we can sell our drawings? seems like a tough business to earn money online, but what the heck, just thought I'd popped out the question...:-) I'd appreciate your respond! Happy mylotting!

deviantArt would be a start. Also, any kind of local fairs or arts-and-crafts shows would be ideal. I've seen people sell their anime/manga-style drawings at Japanese entertainment conventions. I don't sell my art, but I've met quite a few people who do. Most that I know sell both online and in person in order to reach a variety of people.

You could try selling your sketches at I don't' know much about it but it may be helpful. I would suggest starting with EBay or perhaps at a local flea market, consignment shop or maybe you could set up in a park or something. Good luck, I hope this helps. Mari

you should take a look at this is the medium for buying and selling arts and crafts. it is better than ebay for the artist. i dont know if there is anything like that on etsy, but its worth a shot.
