Artistic pictures like these above that took a great deal of time usually sell very bad (and mostly - by subscription) or don't sell at all. This is a biggest disappointment, to be sure. But there are two exceptions that brought me 21$ and 18$ when others - zero or usually 0.42$
You have cool photos and drawings! I never thought that drawings can be sold like that! I have some drawings myself, so thank you for the idea!
I love your blue cat watching that bird! It`s so cute!
Good luck and many many sales!
Interesting - I have several hand drawn illustrations and only one that is a sketch has sold, and it's sold more than once. I come to the same conclusion as you. :) Except that I have had computer generated illustration sales - the simplest of those sell better than many pictures that took me a lot of time to set up. :)
Your water color images are very beautiful.. lemon & orange trees also interesting... And Vectors also selling very well here. thats my personal experience.. try some different concepts.. Good Luck Sanda..
Thank you for the suggestions, but you have to think about the future and not only at the present. Maybe The images that now aren't sold, in the future will be sell. I always think the airbrushing technique: until a few years ago many illustrators used this technique to create images, now it's the time to photoshop and similar softwares......who knows what the desingers will ask in a few years?

Your portfolio is great! To improve your sales, I will suggest you to do the following: work with the keywords. You have plenty of room to fill 80 unique and descriptive keyword for each of your work. Success, lots of inspiration and downloads! (and uploads of course too). Adrian
Thanks for sharing this with us. I was just thinking, that maybe the different styles of work you have maybe need different subjects to sell well. Like the watercolours you show here are landscapes. The sketches are maybe more fantasy/science fiction. Maybe the vectors need to be a different concept to sell. So each style of work sells well in a different concept of image. Hope that makes sense. lol. Cheers Carol :) PS, I love the blue cat too :)
