If you want to make photorealistic images, go buy a camera.

That's the classic argument I was thinking of.  :)

I think I've forgotten most of what I know about drawing realistically. I used to be better at it. Especially, my life drawing. I went to a figure drawing event a year or so ago and was surprised at how much I sucked at it. I just don't practice it enough to maintain the skills I used to have. That said, my process for producing finished illustrations now kicks the fanny off of anything I could do in college when I was a drawing machine. I wouldn't trade that in.

Hey your green flying piggy is awesome! :P Keep up doing what you are doing best ;p. Realistic stock vector has it's place say someone needs a huge print (ex: near a highway) and wants a top quality specific image there, else like you say, buying a camera is the way to go hehe :p

I agree with you. Microstock is all about commercial success. It's "design trumps art "in my opinion.

Maybe, sometimes in future i will find out what these discussions are about.
Best Illustration is what sells microstockbusiness, is it worth to mention or to discuss? Is this an artclub or something else?
Best agency for any Illustration is what gives the best return per Image, anyway if they reach it by more sales or by higher prices...RPI (Revenues per Image) is the Benchmark at this point.
This thread isn't about fotos...even if some someones would hope to get more attention in posting rubbish here as they get at microstockagencies for their rubbish fotos.
Fotorealistic Illustrations are not the matter of this thread. I can create an fotorealistic Vector Illustration of an perfect ball in seconds...some can do it better with more complex Objects....gratulations to them. Was this the question, NO!
