It's a huge market with plenty of potential specially because if it's done electronically it means it doesn't have a physical limitation and you can direct it everywhere. Here are some of the platform you can use to sell you art online.

Society6, Redbubble, and Gumroad allow artists to create online stores and sell their digital art as prints, posters, canvases, or downloadable files. The choice is yours to make multiple design that can very attractive to a large customer base.

Let's dive in a second way to make this happen by creatingand selling digital assets. Design and sell digital assets that other creators like you can use in their projects. This can include textures, patterns, icons, fonts, or graphic elements. Marketplaces like Creative Market, Envato Market, and Adobe Stock are popular platforms to sell these assets. Let's think about it if you happen to need one it's very likely some else is needing them too, now you can make money of off that.

Let's try another one that might have a longer shot. We talking about print-on-demand merchandise: Create designs that can be printed on various merchandisesuch as T-shirts, mugs, phone cases, and more, tote bags. But first you have to open an account in platformslike Printful, Printify, Teespring, Redbubble integrate with e-commerce platforms and handle the printing, packaging, and shipping while you earn a profit from each sale. Just handle the marketing, the branding of your business because it can turn out to be very profitable.

At last you can teach and sell online courses: Share your expertise and skills by creating and selling online courses or tutorials on platforms like Udemy, Skillshare and Teachable. You can teach digital art techniques, software tutorials, or share your artistic process on YouTube by creating videos. Don't get it wrong, YouTube is a profitable source of income once you've mastered it.
