Advice about a new project

Hi,

I'm brand new to mumsnet, so please go easy on me!

I've been drawing and sketching since I was young, and recently I started drawing little animal characters for my nieces (I've had rave reviews from them so far). I quite enjoyed drawing them, so I carried on, and started getting a little bit more creative with them.

I started doing them for fun, but I've been convinced to start looking into selling them in some shape or form - I'm hoping to study medicine as a graduate next year, so any money raised would go to saving for that.

I wanted to hear some opinions on the characters themselves, as well as some thoughts about how to present them and general ideas/feedback.

I've never thought much of my sketches, so I haven't the faintest idea about how to go about selling them; any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I'll attach a few examples. (rough sketches, apologies for the quality)

Those are wonderful! I'm not sure how to sell other than maybe frame them (white Ikea box ones would look good) and offer them on Etsy or Not on the High Street. Go to those two sites and find out how to become a seller. Also look at the price of other similar things.

They are very good but imo it would be a very niche market that would buy them. You also describe them as characters (which I would too) and I think as illustrations with a story they would do well. Obviously you are going into medicine so this isn't your thing. Maybe it could work as cards, with a bit of tweaking.
