FeaturingI keep practising, hoping to get better and one day be able to earn a premium membership without money, only with points, earned with my art... dAhub was not a great help, even though I did earn some points giving comments. But I prefere commenting people and art I like and I enjoy commenting, not fishing for points ... :(
