I will probably go deeper in a soon to be posted blog article. :-)

Well Rolmat, waiting for your blog, Oppssss I was abot to upload around 50 black and white tatoo illustrations, I did it for one client so I thought I will upload it, Now I think I will not upload all 50. May combine all into one, let the buyers be happy and return back to my portfolio.

@Creativei: Sorry, but I disagree. if you have included a... rabbit. See my point? :-)
Well Rolmat, What I was trying to explain is give more to your buyer, if you see my Arabic Illustration, I could have used just one with some background and something else. It would have sold, but giving so many elements for just the price of one, you tend to sale more when they find similar artwork.

I understood it, Altaf. And that's ok, I am sorry if I was not clear enough.
Just wanted to underline the need of a concept on illustrations, specially in regards to collections. Moreover, and this is my personal opinion, time has come whereas simple individual illustrations (web icons, logos, symbols, u name it) despite being perfectly done, just don't have the same appealing and sales potential than before. I have tons individual of b/w tattoos which I've uploaded in the past. They sold then, but they don't sell now. Why? The offer is bigger than before, as simple as that. But hey, I have a level 4 tattoos collection. So you are correct, and actually we strive to ask users to combine many of their individual images into a single collection if the concept is the same. The example I gave, by mentioning your images, was of course meant to seen as a good example.

As for my other suggestions, sorry if I hijacked (;-) your initial issue. Just thought it would be a good idea to pinpoint some other no-no's, about which I will probably go deeper in a soon to be posted blog article. :-)

@Creativei: Sorry, but I disagree. Both of your illustrations do have a concept, unless you would have inserted non-related elements into your collection, or in your map, if you have included a... rabbit. See my point? :-)

My friend,

Your list may continue with concepts, food, people...

Correct, and many more. However, I guess the basic idea is clear. It's up to everyone to play the game provided that basic rules are followed.

I believe in simple illustrations, where buyer can download and wok on it. Give multiple items in one illustrations, its value for money for buyers. See these examples of mine.
   World Map in detail   
In this I would have used all bits and pieces and made map of many countries, But I made a detailed map of each country and i sold almost 48 in DT.
   Islamic Art   
Here I have included all the elements together, its not a concept, just a resource a buyer buys one and gets everything for free and I have sold around 37 copies of this in DT alone. So it all depends on how you present it. After we need sales so think from that point of view.

As Mani said, there isn't really an accurate answer. Besides, your basket includes "too many eggs": 3d renders, scanned art pieces, collages, vectors, rasters, fractals, and so on. Too many to compare with, right? So here's the basic rule: the most wanted are... The best executed, the most creative, with a good concept, with relevant keywords, correct categorizes, etc. See, this doesn't differentiate much from photos. Personally, I have reviewed thousands of well exectuted illustrations without any glimpse of a concept (and vice-versa). Sometimes, I even wonder if some users think about a concept after the work completion (eg. "hey this looks good, it can be used to as a visual reference to globalization...". Well, it might work, it might work not. So planning ahead is definetely a wise thing to do. Others: Big mistake is to think that those ever growing icons collections, the thousands of grungy backgrounds (some, and believe me, are really a poor excuse for lack of skills :-), and of course all those tempting icon symbols on glossy buttons (beware my friends, font symbols can raise potential copyright. That is not acceptable and and they will be declined). Finally, don't kill your galleries with identical versions of the same vector wheras the only difference are colours. After all, why would a customer buy different color versions when they can actually change them by themselves? These are just some thoughts I wanted to share with you so that you don't get tempted by quantity instead of quality. Other than that, all you have to do is to keep an eye on the best sellers and put your own flavour in the subject. And talking about subjects, there are plenty of them, specially the seasonable ones which will bring you to the last requirement: variety.

I don't think there is an accurate answer! Illustration or photography depends on the quality and the subject the buyer is looking for!
There might be hot topics that make a boom suddenly! Like Swine Flu for example!
The concept is very important... Something you are showing in your Trees for example...
Just one more thing... Play the game it's helpful to get closer to the answer. Thanks ;)
