Create a Work

There are two ways of creating Works in Banchan:

  1. From your Studio page.
  2. From a completed Commission invoice.


This page will cover how to do both.



Creating a Work from a Studio Page


First, navigate to your Studio by choosing it from the drop down in the navigation bar on the top left of the page. If you're on mobile or on a narrow screen, you fill first need to click the "hamburger" (three horizontal lines) next to the main logo that says "Banchan" next to it, on the top left.



Next, click on the "Portfolio" tab on your Studio page to go to your Works portfolio.



Click on "New Work" to go to the creation page for Works.


From here, you can fill out the required fields (Title and Description), and also edit additional details about the Work:

  • tags can be chosen to help with search and "related" listings
  • "Mature" must be checked if this Work contains mature content
  • "Private" may be checked in order to hide this Work from searches and listings, including your portfolio (when viewed by someone outside of your Studio). Anyone with a direct link to the Work may still see it, though, even if they're not in your Studio.
  • Offering lets you associate this Work with an Offering. It will then be used as part of the Offering's gallery, and the "Get Your Own" link on the Work will go to this Offering instead of the Studio.
  • "Showcase" is analogous to "pinning": whenever this Work is listed, such as in your Portfolio or Offering Galleries, it will be sorted before non-Showcased works. This is the only "manual ordering" available.


To complete your Work, you must then upload up to 10 files, which may be up to 25MB each. These files may be of any type, but only supported image files will be shown in previews. You may drag and drop uploads to sort them, and only the first image upload will be used as the "thumbnail" for the Work when displayed across the site.


Now, you can click "Create Work", and the Work will be created and added to your portfolio and, if relevant, your Offering.



Creating a Work from a Commission


You can also automatically create a Work from attachments on your Commission's Final Invoice.


Once you've gone through the Commission process and your Commission is done, click on "Final Invoice" under "Actions":


Then, when filling out the Invoice, make sure to click on the "+" box, under "Final Attachments", and add any files you want to release to your client once the invoice is paid. These files will not be accessible to the client until payment is complete and released.



When you're ready, send the invoice and wait for payment. Once payment is complete, your invoice will show a "Create As Work" button.


Clicking this button will expand into a form where you can fill in Work details and finish creating it:



From here, you can fill out the required fields (Title and Description), and also edit additional details about the Work:

  • tags can be chosen to help with search and "related" listings
  • "Mature" must be checked if this Work contains mature content
  • "Private" may be checked in order to hide this Work from searches and listings, including your portfolio (when viewed by someone outside of your Studio). Anyone with a direct link to the Work may still see it, though, even if they're not in your Studio.
  • "Showcase" is analogous to "pinning": whenever this Work is listed, such as in your Portfolio or Offering Galleries, it will be sorted before non-Showcased works. This is the only "manual ordering" available.


The Offering will be automatically associated with it, as will the Commission and its client, which, in the future, will allow things like listing Works a client has commissioned.


When you click on "Create Work", the Work will be created and you will be automatically taken to its page, which you can use to link it, or further edit it.
