Hey guys, just a journal I wanted to post to get some of your opinions. :-)
Okay, so we all know there's a bunch of websites out there for users to upload their artwork and share with others. But there seems to be no sign of an art market site, just for furries.
I was originally going to create my own furry art sharing site named Doodlefur.net but then I got the idea of a market instead to make it easier for artists and commissioners.
I do want to create a feature called the "Digital DVD Downloader" but that might have to come at a subscription cost due to the fact that:
1) It hoards bandwidth, depending on the download size
2) It does tend to take up a lot of disk space.
I do have a dedicated server holding 4 Terabytes worth of hard drives so this might not be a problem, however if the site is a success and the digital dvd downloader becomes popular, I may need to invest in custom servers.
So... enough about that, let me list you some of the features we plan on creating:
That's right. Auctions. With real-time updates and official up-to-date top bidders, as well as giving the artist the feature to set minimum bid placements. So for example if the starting bid is say $10 and it goes up only by every $10, then the artist can do this.
Easy to use artist finder
I want to be able to give users the option to search for an artist for their desired commission depending on their preference, as well as listing artists by rating, feedback and price.
Simple to use commission management
The title says it all really, it will allow the artist to keep track of commissions they get, and the best bit is they can set a certain amount of commissions they can take per time and they won't even need to wait for a commissioner to buy, the commissioner can simply just click "Buy Spot" and it'll instantly appear in the artist's queue, as long as the commissioner details their commission and references etc. The artist will also be able to post updates to the commissioner for the commissioner to approve and provide any additional detailing about their commission.
These are just a few of the examples we have planned and we also want to hear from you about your ideas. Please feel free to share any of your ideas, as well as sharing this journal about to get the message across! We really want to be able to make artists and commissioners have a better and easy to use service that can make art sales soar through the roof.
