Would you buy my prints at a con?

I am thinking of selling art prints/buttons/bookmarks etc. art at a small local anime convention, it would be my first time selling my art. the cost of getting a table is only $20 so I am not too worried about making back what I spent for a table.
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in my art hypothetically if they saw it at a con.
Please look at my gallery to see my work!

Also, is there a character you would want me to draw for a print? and to con-goers, what are some popular characters people sell prints of, or any advice you would like to give?

thank you!

I think making small posters these would look really nice. I'm not into anime myself but I think these would sell. I'm curious at what resolution are most of your works?

I looked at Fionna and it said 900x600 at 300 dpi that's 3in x 2in. Just a little heads up on printing. I had to do some printing projects for school and that's a whole new can of worms.

Yeah that's understandable I was just making sure. No one wants to print something nice and clean and have it come out all pixelated. Nothing is worse than a mistake you have to pay for. Best of luck!

Well, yes, some of it. The one I just favorited is one I would really consider. :) Depends on my mood and money and how it looks in reality.
With that said I think maybe it's a good idea to fill your gallery more so you'd have more products and experience. :) There's still room for improvement though and that shows. XD

As for most cons, fan-art is apparently what sells the most - though not the only thing. I don't really know though because we in little Norway don't have much cons.

thank you! I know I need improvement so I will sell them for rather cheap, and I have time before the con to make more fan art!

Well all good luck to you then!
A personal opinion though is that I favor more original, self expressed works - like yours!
