Photos vs illustrations
I started at DT with photos but got interested in illustrations after seeing what other DT contributors where doing and the success that some illustrations have had. I taught myself the basics using Inkscape and GIMP and started making my own illustrations. I have found that my acceptance rate for illustrations is higher that for photos. Each time I go on a illustration creating spree my acceptance ration goes up. My photos sell better than my illustrations, however, as my skills are still not where I want them to be. I can make illustrations anywhere in any conditions provided I have a computer where as I can not take pictures at all times. Illustrations take more time to create than a photo but do not have issues such as model releases and trademarks provided you create your illustrations from scratch.
What are your thoughts on illustrations vs photos?
