hey!!

i just quick wanted to share some different resources for people who are looking to make money off of art, or are beginning to take it in that sort of direction.

i'll probably add other useful resources when i come across them.

- i'm not including sites like tumblr, deviantart, and redbubble to this list, as generally i haven't had a good experience with those, i've heard others weren't very happy with them for particular reasons, or i see flaws in them like not always being the best for professional use, or commonly seeing content which isn't prefered -

~ for displaying art ~

worpress - https://wordpress.com/
can be used to make a blog or website in which you can display art. more professional.

wix - https://www.wix.com/
can be used to make a blog or website in which you can display art. more professional, and you can sell things through it i'm pretty sure.

behance - https://www.behance.net/
behance is a site in which you can display your art in a portfolio like fashion. very good for professional use.

gamedevmarket - https://www.gamedevmarket.net/
for artists who make art suitable for video games to display and sell art/assets.

~ sites to sell art/products on ~

society6 - https://society6.com/
quite professional, pretty good quality products. they'll put your artwork on products for you, and ship them for you.

cafepress - http://www.cafepress.com/
quite similar to society6.

etsy - https://www.etsy.com/

tictail - https://tictail.com/

~ to print your artwork on products and ship them/sell them yourself ~

customink - https://www.customink.com/

Another site for selling art is Cafepress (http://www.cafepress.com/). Similar operations to Society6 in that they handle the printing/postage side of things.

And of course Christianmanga.com is good for displaying art but we already on it so...

This site below is handy for drawing poses. I don't think too many objectionable images are on this site, but I haven't looked completely.

It's not a art-displaying site, but I thought I'd mention it in case anyone's interested.

@Lizzie - that link would be better placed in the Art Theory / References subforum: http://christianmanga.com/smf/index.php/board,37.0.html

@rigningardagur - it might be a good idea to change the title of this thread to something more like 'Sites where artists can make money from their art' to prevent confusion :D
