EDIT: Thank you for the DD! I'm proud and honored for my first DD to come from dAr and also the CSS fairy, because she is like, amazing.
Thank you for all the comments and the faves!
I figure, instead of bitching about how 'terrible' the commissions widget is, wouldn't it be more useful to, I dunno, help improve it
So this is me, trying to help make it better.
One of the main things I see that needs to be updated about the widget is you can only sell cookie-cutter commissions. This is fine for most people, but for deviants who offer additional costs for extra features, it's not enough. And if we want to get our wages for doing 3 extra characters or adding a really complex background... we can't really do that currently. Sure, we can make separate 'commissions' that are identical aside from the price and the added feature, but we can only have so many commissions on the widget.
Here's my mock-up for adding additional 'features' as options to commissions. These would be optional for both the artist and the commissioner, and probably have a limit to how many features you can offer for each commission (I think 10 is reasonable but some artists with more customizable commissions might think that's too low)List of suggested features:
NOT to be included as some sort of drop down menu, but as a guide of sorts so artists can figure out what to call that thing they want to charge extra for.
+ Additional characters
+ Larger canvas (headshot --> bust --> waist --> full body)
Have a suggested feature? Comment and I'll add it.
And yes, I used
's commission widget for this. Hers was the only one I could find, sorry 'bout that!
