And if so, does anyone have any success stories they know of?

Thanks.

I think this person does full time freelancing: [link]
I don't know if the pay is "good" but it is probably enough to live on.

'Good money'? I doubt it.

There's a bell curve. Really good and really crap jobs are paid very badly. I suspect that Digital Artists fall into the former category.

Sure, there's always ways to make money with anything. ... I just don't know how here.

I guess you can make money if you work for a big movie studio editing movies, for a magazine or as a website designer :nod:

However, just like an average Joe Artist you won't get very far. Besides digital art gets stolen all the time :no:

There is no way to effectively protect a digital image, they can be easily copied and edited :nod:

Isn't that what graphic artist do all the time (I'm not one). They usually compose work on programs like photoshop and sell it to businesses or individuals-i.e. logos, product designs, etc.

Oh yeah i suppose.

What about very good drawings? Can they be put into real life galleries from programs like Photoshops? or isn't that possible.

I mean like, say someone drew something really good on Photoshop and decided to try and sell it. Is that possible? Or is it very rare?
