So, I met someone in the hospital the other day (i've been in the hospital for the past couple weeks) while I was staying with a relative and we talked about some potential work. Long story short she wants me to work on a "doll maker" program that'll create greeting cards.
It's like a dress up but the configuration for the different dolls needs to be saved. Those dolls will then be put onto a greeting card which will then be e-mailed to her so that she can print them out and ship them to the customer.
What I was thinking was I could use XML to store all the data, then parse it out with php into a jpg, but I'm not sure that's possible anymore. I know php can generate images but I'm not sure how it works.
Also, I need to pull the art assets off of a server, they won't be stored in the flash file. Although I was thinking of just making the flash file and modifying it whenever new pieces were made (I'm looking for minimal maintenance).
With everything said and done, now I'm beginning to wonder whether $1,000 is a reasonable price, or am I cutting myself short?
