    by 2700art | 15th of April, 2016

    >  The last batch I got accepted marked my 200 images milestone. Despite this great achievement I feel a little disappointed that I have only 35 sales. Is this a good amount? Should I be happy with how things are rolling along? I feel that I have a pretty strong database... More
