I wrote and published an article on the science fiction site, socially promoted it and made the usual posts and interactions on myLot and bitLanders. I did some work on a role playing game supplement. Approximately 1,000 words were written today. I uploaded three photographs to Dreamstime and made four new Zazzle items. So far, I haven't managed to sell any Dreamstime images or Zazzle products, and I've had more rejected images from Dreamstime than accepted ones. This might seem like a waste of time, but it's using images I was getting for something else, so why not add them? The only way they definitely won't sell is if I don't try. I also did some more with Blender. Not the tutorial series, as I wanted to do something specific, which is the book above. I really don't like video tutorials though. Image: Me

There is more than 10 years that I have not worked with a 3D/raytracing software, they really need to invest too much time to produce good photo realistic pictures. I am impressed by your activity. How many pictures have you on Dreamstime ? I am considering to also put there some photos.

I'm not really trying for photo realism; I mostly want illustrations and things for my role playing game supplements. At that level, I think you can produce things quite quickly, with experience. I have 18 photos currently on Dreamstime, with three pending. To really make money there, I think you need many photos (hundreds? thousands?), better composition skill and, probably most important, the ability to take photographs that people really want.
