You can try Deviantart, I'm not sure how many people actually get their prints sold, but it's an easy spot to check out.

Incredible work Adam! Is this done in pencil/conte crayon?! What size do you tend to figure draw?

If you have sufficient traffic through your blog, you could try just selling them through ebay. Check out duane keiser's blog, http://duanekeiser.blogspot.com/.

You could check with Barrett as well, since I think he sells drawings.

I've seen people selling paintings and drawings through a blogger group called a painting a day (google it). I think they link through ebay.
I'm not sure about life drawings but I bet someone would interested in buying them.

I should wait until you have something worth selling.

Only kidding.

It looks great.

impressive lightings, always perfect...
no idea how to sell artworks on the web except ebay or an online shop... sorry.
(maybe you could try the exhibitions/galleries field)

I read that as a cynical commentary - and shed a tear. Why don't people buy figurative art anymore?! Why!!!?

Amazing piece. Even works well in the thumbnail! I am always amazed how u work detail against wash, sharp against soft. I dunno if you do it conclusion or not, but it's working.

Damn - nice drawing .Really like the soft versus crisp edges .

First, your work is great! Second, it takes a bit of doing, but hitting the local gallery circuit in the area has had some success for me. Multipage PDF to send out or whatever their own submittal procedure is. It is a pain to set up, mat, frame, but once it is done, it is done forever. Folks here voiced that original art seekers want to see it, feel it. Here in KC we have an arts district where even the coffee shops, Hotels, Banks have art show openings... May check them in your area?

You're the man, man. Beautiful drawing. Unfortunately I can't help with the selling. Other than possibly finding local gallery representation.

Maybe try Ryan Woodward's approach and publish your drawings in a book, along with some thoughts on and pointers on how you set it up think yourself through it, etc. Anatomy books are easy to find, but I always like to look at how a great artist lays down their own strokes and read what they have to say about it.

Brian Cutler said...

Yeah, Adam. Put out a figure drawing book. I'm always amazed at how many figure drawing books there are out there by crappy artists. It's about time a good artist put out a book.

awesome! woooooooooow

Hey I am a local SLC artist- I check your blog for new figure drawing posts all the time. Here is my advice to capitalize on your exceptional talent. Teach/host a figure drawing workshop. Seriously I would pay 100 bucks to sit in and simply watch you draw for a couple of hours.

Throw the idea out on your blog see what kind of response you get. I'm in for sure.

Your life drawings are very strong.
You should look into selling them, they are works of art!

Have you considered Etsy.com? It's generally crafty stuff, but I think there a lot of people who check it who would also be interested in finer art.

Addam
Your drawings are compelling and on par with professional fine artists. There are a few serious artists who do OK on ebay, especially those who can reference galleries or personal web sites that document their professional training and body of work (see seller brush-and-pallette, for example, whose work is handled in a gallery but who sells his oil and charcoal studies on ebay). Also, you might add a page to your blog for available work, or simply mention when you post a piece that it's available for purchase. I see two pieces you've posted already that I'd be interested in purchasing.
