Making money online by selling your art

Hi, I wanted to make money online by selling my art. I just don't know how. Do you guys know of any good websites or ways to do it. I'm completely clueless about it. My classmates seem to do it effortlessly. And when I ask them they just say I should post it. Any suggestions would be appreciated!See More
