    Anybody making money with selling your digital paintings?

    Hi people,

    I'm wondering if any of you is actually making any money selling your digital (Artrage) paintings? Any services/websites you can recommend where you can sell your art (e.g. upload your files as graphics and the service is dealing with the whole ordering/printing on canvas stuff etc.) - I'm sure something like that exists (In fact it does - Google has lots of sites here. But which one is recommendable?!)

    EDITED: I have made a forum search and found a reference to fineartamerica.com - anybody using this?

    Thanks a lot!
    Marco

    Hey there, a lot of people like to use Zazzle. I'm still working out the details on my zazzle, but I have my own blog that showcases my art and I send people there. I work by commission. It's not steady work, but for me the art is a stress reducer, so the money is just a plus when it happens.

    Zazzle is a website where you can design your own items (Like T-shirts, mugs and bags) and many people use their digital arts for it. Also there are several accomplished authors using digital book format and printed books, and a couple folks who have their own websites that vary from comics to card design. edit: I forgot that there are some video game designers on here as well.

    The forums are most active in the gallery.

    Good luck with your sales!

    Thanks a lot, Mags. I've just tried Zazzle but it's just not my cup of tea... I find the adminstration of the whole thing completely confusing and not intuitive at all. With FineArtAmerica I was up and running with a few products within a couple of minutes basically but I haven't managed to create a single product for sale on Zazzle after 20 minutes and I have given up (and I'm a web technology based software developer specialized on user interfaces myself (main profession...))

    Hmm, maybe that is why I haven't been able to get mine up and running! I will check out the place you mentioned too.

    No, no money except the pure joy of painting, which tends to vanish when I mix money and painting.

    I have a smugmug site (see my sig below) and I love the technology. It is a very good site IMO and the quality of their printing is absolutely outstanding.

    Right now only a 5 year old would buy a picture from me.

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.
    No more open minds or dogs for me.www.gms9810.com/
