100 Sales!

posted on 24th of august, 2012

I finally made 100 sales! I never thought it could be so fast.
This is the 100th image sold:

It took me 9 months to fail uploading, understand what was wrong, upload more, start selling, build portfolio constantly, and now I have 321 images uploaded.
I can foresee more sales in less time as portfolio and exposure grows.
So, keep working and loving what you are doing.

Rejection is normal and makes you a better photographer/illustrator and a better seller.

Thank you Parkinsonsniper. Never thought I could be a semaless master, lol. When I fell stressed drawing I enjoy playing with seamless images, they give a sense of order.

Thanbk you all again.
Alvera, you are right about the acceptance ration. I have more than 100 to upload weekly, but as I am too chicken to upload remotely possible rejections, I still have a high upload ratio.

Dear Celiaak, you are going to become a master of seamless textures :) you have almost 110 seamless photos in your port and they will surely bring you joy. Congrats for your milestone and thanks for sharing with us.

Yes, the secret is keep working and loving what you are doing. But be aware of rejections, your acceptance ratio must stay up too. It's very hard to rebuild. Congratulations for 100 sales! Love your work.

Thank you all :) Inyrdreams, 81 accepted in a month is very good! I can hardly meet my 50 goal images minimum, this month I'm way behind. I'm pretty sure in a couple of months this work will show.
