So I'm a beginner artist who doesn't make a lot of money. I'd like to sell my drawings but I don't know if I can, Is there anyone who knows where i can sell beginner art?

btw, i don't know how to use the URL to post picketers, so here's a link to my profile on a site called scratch, my username is DaSkecher (http://scratch.mit.edu/users/DaSkecher/)

It's a nice dream but it's not going to happen. Keep your day job. I'm not trying to be mean just bluntly honest.

what day job? i don't make a lot of money cuz i don't have any type of job what so ever. i'd like to get a job but i don't see how, i'm only 14 and the only thing my parents will let me do is mow loans, and i hate mowing loans, i'd take almost any other job if i could.

and what the heck dos "honest" mean?

14? Hrm... I'd recommend visiting places like deviantART, joining a few groups, and making a name for yourself doing commissions and custom work. Commissions provide all sorts of challenges to keep your skills sharp and/or help you develop new skills. I've watched artists grow from wobbly drawings to some rather amazing stuff on dA. It'd be a good way to practice so you could possibly make a living selling art someday. But don't be disappointed if you don't have a whole bunch of people ordering stuff right away. It takes time to build up a client base.

It is very hard to make a living off of drawing, but many are lucky enough for it to supplement whatever jobs they already have.
