High Five! 5 features of good stock illustrations

Talented illustrator Natalia Moroz speaks about 5 features of good stock illustrations and the ways to develop these features in your works.

1. Originality: A good illustration contains simple things depicted in the author’s own vision. Creating an illustration for stock agencies means producing something totally new. You shouldn’t be afraid to try new techniques, look for bright characters, and apply original solutions. Try to find a subject which is not too popular in stocks; look for your own niche. Your way of thinking should be unconventional; that will help you to realize fresh ideas in your own style.

High Five! 5 favorite stock subjects of Kati Molin

1. HOLIDAYS. I am definitely a Christmas person. I love everything about it: baking and decorating cookies, burning candles, decorating the house, wrapping beautiful gifts and so on. Every year Christmas just goes by too fast, so shooting some Christmas stuff is a good excuse to start the holiday season early. In addition to Christmas, I also like Eastertime. After a long and dark winter, it is nice to see more light and bright colors. These two holidays and the holiday images have made March and November my best months of sales for several years now.
