    My Experience selling art on Graphic River

    Graphicriver.net is part of the larger Envito marketplace. I’ve started making and selling some vector items on there for adobe illustrator. they have photoshop assets and other sister sites have 3d assets.

    This AI pattern brush is my best seller on there so far.

    Right now I'm making some small profits, with hopes of scaling it to more.

    The way it works is you submit the art for review. Then if they accept it, they put a price on it. commissions start off at 50% for exclusive items and go up to 75%. The Author retains the copyright to the art and can continue to sell the file over and over. You can also double dip your art, selling photoshop backgrounds on graphic river and the same art on photodune. I haven't tried that trick yet, though I've been taking photos of metal and wood at the shop.

    Anyway, it's worth checking out as a user or seller. I'm TradigitalArt on there by the way.

    Here a link to my portfolio on G.R.

    Update!

    Quick Update.

    I've almost sold 10,000 worth of product so far and my commissions are at 52%.
    I'm up to 52 items now. Here's my latest.

    I also I recently had an item selected to go into an Envato bundle that they sold for a week. It was 1000 dollars worth of product for 20 bucks. I should have mentioned it here when it was still running. anyhow it should give me an extra 500-1000 bonus! whoop! Nice having a hobby that pays. : )

    I respect that you are putting yourself out there and all, but this does feel a little spammy.

    Couldn't you have added the others on just by editing the 1st post?

    Thanks for keeping' me in line Peter.

    I'll try to keep that in mind. I don't think an update after 2 years is too aggressive. : ) sorry if it comes off spammy. Mainly, I'm trying to let people know how it's going from a concept art user's perspective. It's not easy money at all, but if you are going to do the art anyway, it's kind of fun to learn what people will buy There. I'll be sure to let y'all know if i make any big breakthroughs. It's definatly worth going over there just to check out some of the awesome photoshop actions if nothing else.
