This job is to create the core for a drawing site where users hand-draw posts and comments in a Flash app, and interact with a few very basic PHP social network features. The end result would be similar to tegakie.com.
While the tegakie drawing app is a great base, I'd like more functions, including:
-More line options (opacity, width)
-Halftones or airbrush for shading
-A few layers, which can be turned on/off
-Ability to import a reference image from hard drive
-Ability to save unfinished images to the server for later editing
-An improved and more diverse color picker which can accept hex colour codes
-Forbid users from posting the drawing unless they have spent more than a certain amount of time working on it.
The Flash app would have a bit of a PHP skeleton: Upon saving a drawing with the app, the PHP should convert the workable SWF into a JPG, and render a thumbnail and unique page for the drawing.
The social network features would be very similar to tegakie. Each user gets their own mini-gallery where their stats and drawings are displayed. Users should have the ability to draw comments on other user's work, "friend" other users, and tag drawings with keywords. I'd like a ranking system where users who comment and are active get points.
The admin should get a basic control panel where overall site stats can be reviewed and users can be edited (deleted, permissions changed, etc.).
My budget is on the lower end of the range. I do not need any webdesign or skinning services for this job; I only require the core scripts. I'm looking forward to working together. Thanks!
