Well, not exactly impossible but you have to overcome a few obstacles. Many people believe that they can make the same photo with their phone as you are creating with your camera. Next, because we live in the digital age, people believe they can get off the net for free. Last, you have to create a product that is not easily replicated. You will likely have to sell in a different way than you are thinking. Selling photos is a good gig if you can breck into the gig.
Sure, you could... After years and years of commitment, practise, blood, sweat, and tears Selling photography prints is difficult in the first place, and selling them when you're just starting, next to impossible. You have to be producing a truly amazing photo to make people want to buy it.

Because you just got a new camera does not make you a photographer in any way. Making a living from photography is a very lucrative career path.
Before even starting as yourself if you work an compete with working professional's If so then you need to think about how you are going to generate a need for people to have/want your photography. I myself have not sold anything on deviant art, Very hard to sell photography to other photographers. You have to look at who you will be marketing to and how to attract them.
I would recommend taking a business course rather than a photography course if you intend to make a living. hope this helps,
Well, the sales can be unpopular because of the payment method, as I wrote before. Didn't try it myself as you know, also I don't know much about the famous artists, but I guess, regardless to the not many buyers it's worth a try.
