Microstock is not enough, but (luckily) it helps!
Today I received another payment from dreamstime.
I congratulate with the site for the great speed of payments (in less than 24 hours I had the required payment, really good).
It is not a large amount, however, in a work environment in which I do not devote myself only to microstock, I am still satisfied to receive this money every now and then.
In fact, no one could live by only microstock (or, rather, those who can live only with microstock are few and are those who have many images or who started earlier than others), but, personally, if I join these gains with I am doing work for direct customers, advertising revenue of my three blogs and the fledgling low cost design section on my site, I get good amounts which lead me to go on and create images for microstock and invest time in sponsoring the images through social networks.
In short, I thank God that there is also the microstock. If there was not even this possibility for us illustrators would be really difficult to carry on with everyday life!
Thank you very much
