Question

Hi :)
I create manipulated photos only of my avatar (and not landscapes) with different clothing/accessories that i bought.
All are fantasy themed, i use stocks that allow me to sell my creations.

I was wondering if i can sell my photos on the marketplace and IW but i really don't know what would be the right category, in this case.
Ty :)

Yes, you certainly can sell photos either in world or in Marketplace.  The best way to decide how to present your work is to explore.  See how other artists are selling their work.  You'll find many galleries in world.  Study all of the information in the Knowledge Base about how to market things in SL, starting with https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Selling-in-the-Marketplace/ta-p/700193 and https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/How-to-market-your-products/ta-p/700181

There are a large number of SL users that use Flickr and Deviant Art. Those services have ways to sell images/art.

I think a good example of some fine avatar art is Corsario's https://www.flickr.com/photos/130117714@N06/ and there are hundreds more. Search on Second Life. I collect artists I like :) So, see my Favs for a number of what I consider the better artists: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nalates/favorites

You can sell art in SL. The problem is it is very hard to keep images that can be displayed on screen from being copied without purchase. For that reason the high quality paper prints from other services tend to bring in more money.

I sell some fine art in the Market Place. I've never made a lot of money from it.
