I would like to make $150 selling my drawings. I'm really good at drawing portraits of animals and I'm pretty good at drawing animals from memory. I drew and colored a picture of a mom and baby orca/killer whale and a lady baught it for $20. I can also draw anime or japanese cartoons. Anyone know a reliable site that I could use? I'd like to sell $150-120 worth within a month or two.

Yeah, you may make your own website to display your works, and maybe someone will buy them from you,but it need a few more time.

Everyone has made good suggestions, all ones I'd have made. So the question is, what do you want to do with your art?
Cafepress.com is a fantastic website if you'd like to upload your art and have people walk around wearing it on a T-Shirt. Or have it on a mousepad, or a clock, or a blanket, or a ton of other different things. It's free to create your premium shop, and you won't be charged until after you've sold your products.
Etsy.com is like ebay, except it's geared toward one of a kind, home made or vintage items. If you're making canvas' or putting your work on some sort of medium like, say, a chair or a bench, or simply a piece of wood that's meant to hang, this would be a good place to sell your work.
Deviantart.com is good if you just want to make the art and upload it and let people buy a print of it. I'd say the competition for art is a lot more fierce on this site, and you'd be better off on Cafepress for this, cause I'm pretty sure you can put your work on a canvas on cafepress as well.
Good luck!
