We’re currently working with our designer to lay out the potential final designs for the commission system on Furry Network. We have a few main goals when working on this:
- Improve discoverability for sellers.
- Built in page for creators to “sell” themselves.
- Standardized information gathering when requesting a commission.
- Flexible pricing for creators to match the changing market conditions.
We talked about independent artists and the unique value that the fandom has for them – it’s difficult to make a living as a creator, but furries have managed to keep many artists afloat. It’s amazing to see how much support the fandom gives creators despite the lack of a solid commission system.
We want to help make the dream of being an independent creator become a reality for even more furries.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be looking at possible designs and getting feedback about what works and what doesn’t. From there, we’ll continue to hone the design to the specific needs of the fandom. There’s a good amount of work to be done, but we’re planning to keep development active until this is completed!
Thank you for all your support and excitement for the commission system.
