This isn't the upscaled version, but I'm new and I want guidance, what went wrong and how can I improve on the art I generate?

I suspect there is very limited commercial use for these, rejected or not. What was the specific reason they gave you for rejection? (Just the heading is all that's necessary.)

 that was the reason, I'm doing these kind of styles because I thought that with the ai advances and tech advances people would like to use those for stories on youtube that someone talks and a series of images are displayed, or even normal videos talking about dystopian future or cyberpunk world, or futuristic visions, I have in my Portfolio some chinese ink paintings that I didn't delete, one sold of it and one from another cyberpunk one, in 7 months period or so, what do you think I should focus on?, patterns?, ink paintings?, or think kind of futuristic generations?

Sorry, I should not seen that in the title of your post. 🙂

As far as subject matter is concerned, I'd recommend combing through Adobe's stock site and seeing what other people are creating and selling. You'll see a lot of images of people in the process of doing something, be it as simple as running, doing homework, or sitting around a table with a group of friends. I do a lot of portrait work myself, and while my acceptance rate for them is high, they aren't among my best sellers. I have the best luck with graphic assets, images of someone being active, food (for some reason, my bowl of cole slaw and another of chili on a stove are quite popular), animals, landscapes, and a spattering of surreal images. Do what you enjoy doing most, but intersperse them with other material that might not excite you all that much. Feel things out and see what sells regularly...multiple times even...not just one here and one there, which from a stock point of view, won't amount to much in the way of income.

Do as you like, but don't be in a bad mood, if they don't sell. As long as they don't get rejected for commercial appeal, you are fine.

These are all quite low-res looking with blur and jagged lines. There are also many AI drawing errors, with disconnected lines, incomplete objects, etc.  I would also agree with @daniellei4510  about the commercial appeal of these sci-fi images.

Noted for future generations, thanks for your review,

I actually upscale them before uploading to adobe stock, it elemenates blur and bad looks, but seems like the problem is with the generation it self not being good enough, this was my first time using the alchemy upscale option in leonardo.ai maybe I shouldn't use it all the time now, if you see my portofolio, what do you think is best to continue on making? Ink paintings?, patterns like the flower one?, or a better sci-fi style instead of the cyberpunk/dystopian feel.

Look at the Insights and Artists Hub links at the top of your Dashboard page to get ideas of what is selling and what is needed by Adobe Stock. Search the Buyer portal for keyword categories that you're thinking of creating to see if they're already saturated or whether there is an unfilled niche. With 32 million approved AI images in the database, there is a lot of  competition.

When I zoomed in, I found generation errors on all 9 images.  Zoom in and really study the details.

 

Several of the images appeared unsharp at 100% view, and several of the images appeared to have exposure and contrast issues on the Histograms.  There is room for some creativity with how bright or dark an image is, but the histogram is a good indicator of how the image will print so it's important to pay attention to in my opinion.

 

Like @daniellei4510 mentioned, I wonder how you would market these images?

Thanks for your review I learned a lot 😃, what do you think I should focus on from my portofolio, I had an Instagram page and chinese ink paintings where more liked than others, do you think I should try it out more?, you can look for it on my portofolio to know these paintings, also it got me 1 sale right after a other sale for one of my sci fi generations, I'd like to have your opinion on it as an expert 😃.

My advice would be to check both the Insights page to see whats selling well, and the Calls for Content page to see what Adobe feels they need more of in the Stock database.

The Artists Hub has a ton of great info if you haven't visited there yet.

For the most part these have no commercial value. Think about what graphic designers and marketers need every day – science fiction landscapes aren't it.

 

My opinion only: if you can't imagine buying it, then you likely won't be able to sell it, so don't bother making/uploading it.

Even without upscaling , you have artefacts (they will be amplified) and geometry errors (they will stay):

You should, howerver, post here one or two of the refused assets in the quality as submitted. How do you want us to check your assets, if we do not see what the moderator saw.

In the first image, there are some drawing errors that don't make sense - for instance, in the 2 buildings on the far right, there are pink-topped "trees" growing out of the buildings...

 

It's hard to know how to evaluate images like these, but in the 2nd image, it seems that it is heavily reliant on symmetry, i.e. the left side matching the right side, but there is no light in the center of the left "building" to match the light on the right. The human-like figures are poorly drawn, each with bright spots around them as if they weren't properly cut out of a different background...
