  1. Dear Petr! Firstly, let me thank you for your wonderful site, your work and the collection of vector tutorials sites on this page. Secondly, if it possible, of course, please answer me. Which of these vector tutorials sites may I use to make my own pictures in order to sell them on the microstocks? Of course, in this case, my pictures will resemble those ones.
