Taking a cue from Pixiv: The ability to have two or more images/pages within a single submission. This gives artists the ability to control the flood of their own submissions without limiting the volume of work uploaded, and help keep sequential/related works in a single place.
Some usage examples:
- Comics and image packs are an easy example. While some artists maintain ongoing comics with weekly updates, others will opt for sharing shorter complete stories, or new chapters/issues all at once. The same goes for image packs, usually featuring a series of related works. This can also be used as a promotional tool, offering a sample of pages/images for viewers to preview before they buy the complete comic/pack.
- Showing off the work process for a finished piece. It's reasonably common on Pixiv to see submissions with the finished work as the first page, and then subsequent pages show the original sketch, inks, flats, etc.
- Some artists produce a ton of sketches and like to share as much of it as possible. Others go out to events, and then upload all the sketches they produced upon return. Having the ability to collect all those sketches in a single submission can be a godsend — Not just for artists, but for followers as well. (Everyone has experienced flooded notifications at least once. It gets messy fast, and it is not fun to sort through.)
It should be noted that this is different to collecting several submissions in a folder. While a folder does keep everything in one place, followers still have to put up with submission flooding, and the artist goes through the submission process a large number of times just to share complete multi-page works. Adding multi-page support to submissions could offer a solution to both issues.
