The size of these images are fine for review. I've circuled what I believe are the issues. At least some of them. These probably would have passed months ago when Adobe first started accepting AI, but there are unfinished lines on the pharoh image for example. The two straight-on images should be mirrored identially on both sides of the image, as they would be if created by an artisan in real life. This is typical of AI and without a good deal of editing, these would not get past the moderators

There is far more to "quality" than just resolution and file size. If the file size of your asset was too small, you wouldn't even have been able to upload it to the site. Read on the Learn&Support pages the aspects of quality  that are checked by the Moderators:

https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/photography-illustrations.html

 

Reduce the size of 1 or 2 of your assets slightly and upload them here for feedback from the community members.

The size of your asset is not a quality criteria.

Did your read the vector requirements for illustrations?

 

Did you submit vectors as EPS, Adobe Illustrator or SVG files?

Are your vector paths closed?

Are your layers properly labled so customers can use them?

Did you submit a signed property release by you as the artist?

@Nancy OShea ,

Illustrations are pixel assets.

@Nancy OShea ,

By @Abambo

===========

Uh, where does it say that? 

THE OP WROTE: "I have 12 illustrations."  We do not know what the OP submitted.   

 

Illustrations are typically math-based vector graphics (.eps, .ai, .svg) files for higher picture quality. 

Maybe that's the problem.  Pixel-based rasters (.jpg or .png) are prone to pixelation and unwanted artificats.

Illustrations are assets I've always taken to mean are non-photographic.  I don't think the term is synonmous with vector graphics. I could be convinced you could call a vector graphic an illustration, I don't think the reverse is always going to be true.

As a customer, I try to buy only math-based illustrations because the quality is superior at any scale and gives me more ways to use it.  Given the choice between illustrations as vectors or rasters, I'll opt for vectors 100% of the time.  They're better for me as a content creator. 

 

Illustrations submitted as JPGs are OK with Stock.  But IMO, you're cheating yourself out of potential customer sales.  

 

Obviously, photos and Generative AI images have to be submitted as JPG. There's no way around that.

Not all illustrations are vector based. All depends on the type of your illustrations: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illustration

Well it is called Adobe Illustrator, so some confusion can be expected. 🙂

In Adobe stock jargon, illustrations are pixel graphics and vector are vector graphics. The description hints to pixel graphics.

I'm not sure if it means anything here, but In the Adobe User Guide Photos and Illustrations are separate from Vectors in the Content Requirements section.

 

I agree though, illustrations are better suited for vector files.  It's easy enough to convert them to a raster image.

Are you having difficulty uploading them?  At 33mb, they shouldn't be too large to upload.  I'm not sure how helpful we can be without seeing the files.

This is typical of AI and without a good deal of editing, these would not get past the moderators by today's standards. The finer details are the likes of these without giving them another thought. The time it would take to correct the issues far outweigh the less time it would take to re-generate as many times necessary to get them closer to perfection. I've watched YouTube videos where the creators ooh and ahh over how incredible AI is at creating such results but they never show us the full-sized images, which fall apart when viewed full sized or with the detail necessary for commercial use. You aren't doing anything wrong. AI just isn't doing it right, and I think we're still a ways off before it gives us results that don't require further editing.

OK. They are not only illustrations, but generative AI assets. Check your assets at 100%. You will see many artefacts and inconsistencies that need to be corrected. I don't understand, however, the size in Mb of the files. Are you submitting PNG files? PNG files are only for transparent backgrounds. All other submissions should be JPEG. And JPEGs should aim for a size not bigger than 10Mb (4Mb is probably enough in all cases).
