I guess I should just start a thread on this. I'm taking a few weeks to upload and update my work to any sites which have risen up in the last two years or are on the rise.

It occurred to me that not all of those Top Tier / Middle Tier rules on microstockgroup's side bar are necessarily a tell-all for every sort of portfolio.

So I'm asking if anyone can give post sites that are good for illustrations or illustrators (not necessarily supporting vectors). I've already got the Top and Middle Tier covered, so anything else would be welcome.

I am a 99.99% VECTOR artist. I think I have about 6 total photos in my portfolios, and about 2,000 vectors.

Here are my best-selling vector sites from last month (October 2011):

Top Tier: (67% of income)
1. Shutterstock
2. iStock
3. ClipartOf

Middle Tier: (21% of income)
4. Vectorstock
5. Fotolia
6. Canstock
7. Veer
8. 123rf

Bottom Tier: (12% of income)
9. BigStock
10. iClipart
11. Graphic Leftovers
12. Dreamstime
13. Deposit Photos
14. Crestock

Be warned, Vectorstock will likely price all your work for one credit each and give you 25c per sale for the trouble.

I am new here and I cant start a new thread (or dont know how  ;D), so I will ask here.

I am selling only 3d renders, not photos.
And I am only on SS,FT,DS and IS...

for me best is shutterstock, fotolia is also good. istockphoto is not good for me (many rejections), and dreamstime has a very low sales...

Are there any other pages worth to try? For mostly simple 3d renders?
Best if they will not be from Europe (I have troubles with EU sites and their taxes), so I want only non-EU microstock sites...
thanks for any help...
