    some of the fiverr clones which charge more than fiverr may be an option.

    Do you know who her usual paying clients are, or would be? Seems likes
    she's interested in freelance work. Knowing who her clients would be
    would be helpful in determining how she can expand her client reach.
    narrowing down options.

    i have a few children books which are ready to go on publishing but it needs visuals first, she could do the drawings but i would need to get first drawn image for a scene from the book to see how she sees it (if she has the same level understanding so the work would be pleasant).

    Those are some pretty awesome drawings.

    Your friend can make a full time living if he learns to convert this stuff into vectors through illustrator.

    He can sell character designs at $500/pop

    Etsy is the best marketplace for that other than fiverr (maybe). I'm a PT watercolor artist. If he's really good at what he does he'll pull 1k a month no problem. Many artists have been there for only 1-2 years doing commissions and have 480+ positive feedback. 480xsale amount= do the math

    If she can take the style and apply it to things like logos, banners etc people will be interested. There's also the funtari/hentai crowd, but I think the pay kind of blows. I love the style personally, I've always had a soft spot for chibi/manga style. If you come up with rates, I'd be interested in in some logo type work with manga characters for at least two sites atm, and now that I think about it, I have a client that would be extremely interested in using some of them.

    Fiverr is the best choice for her, in my opinion. I might be wrong though. :)

    She should try to learn web design because she's naturally good at drawing and creative
