Somebody use RS for work or only for hobby?

I've used it occasionally for stuff like splash screens, but I don't do that much of gfx work.

I use RS on a daily basis for work. For some clients RS for commercial illustration for promotion purposes is a massive part of the job. In addition, graphics set up in RS are easily able to render plan and exploded views at the press of a button. Plus RS often beats photography for impact, versatility and in some cases for simply being able to acquire a useful graphic in the first place. It would be a disservice to clients who commission work not to draw it in the most versatile medium going since there is no idea often what this or that graphic asset is going to be called on to do further down the line ... and in my studio the most versatile medium is RS.

Well said Neil!
I've been using it to make a (modest) living for almost two years now. Big studios have never heard of it, but that doesn't mean it's not a professional tool. The disadvantage is that if you're looking for a job at a big studio, RS experience doesn't help much unless they are confident that you can pick up a mainstream package quickly. Often, they are too short-sighted
Especially for architectural visuals and walkthroughs RS is great!

That is an issue: "if you're looking for a job at a big studio".
The point is that if you can draw you can bypass the "big studio". And after all the "big studio" would have you show up day after day doing a specialised task at one single point in an inhuman pipeline with no real prospects of ever getting out of the hole (Ok, worse case scenario but not too far wrong).
Bypass by going straight to the client with a drawing, movie, of their product that will knock their socks off and they will hopefully get the picture ... and pay for it of course. But dont go straight after the big accounts ... one man can not beat the pipelines that serve the big accounts as a rule.
Also it can be very handy for a group to act together ... maybe two or three who decide to go for it.
Anyway, RS is just one of many seemingly similar pencils. However it is an all-round pencil. Its features allow it to cover more or less everything needed in a commercial illustration studio without having to buy this app for this part of a job and another app for something else. The render capacity of RS is far in excess of anything I have ever needed. It'll do me.

I am engaged in creation of the image for polygraphy (Hi_res+big_size). I use for this purpose RS many years.

Forgot to mention ... I also use RS and RS only in my own graphic art work (non-client work). If you wish check out the murals on my website ... these are half gigabyte files and are output at 1200mm x 1200mm with a resolution near 300dpi. www.neico.co.nz

Back in 2003 my job was to learn rs3d from the basics. It was a good job, good salary for a student. I had to modell trains, one you could have seen int the futuristic vehicles quarter year compatition. Of course that was a little bit upgraded version... wish I had a job something like that again
