I don’t really understand, is this an artwork style like Impressionism? Or is this a bitcoin-like token?
If it is just Art (as if art should ever be “just” anything) you have two choices,
- Fiverr sets a default state that whatever you make passes fully to the buyer on payment. That is it, done, all over red rover. Hope you like your $4. That is the Work For Hire malarkey (or malady).
- Fiverr also says that every Seller can specify ownership & licensing of the work created in their Gig. Clearly you need to allow reasonable usage of the product so if it is an album cover, you can’t step in and stop me from using it or ask for more ongoing fees as that makes the work “not fit for purpose”.
Each path has advantages. Less experienced business people assume they want and need total ownership of everything all the time (commonly including, you, me and all our data as customers). This is contrary to law or even how they would wish it the foot is being stomped by the other boot. Allowing the buyer to feel comfy they own everything forever and ever with no thought of you is comforting for them and not offering it will cause some to bail on you (poor deluded fools).
A wise buyer will realize that ownership of some things is a bit more malleable. I may just so happen to own a few Judas Priest records, one of which has a Patrick Woodroffe painting on the front. I own the right to listen to that record as much as I like. I can play it in the bedroom. I can play it in the shower. I can play it in my car. I can play it at breakfast time. But I will not own the actual green eggs and ham (sorry music and cover art).
If you make these Arty things and sell them for $5, probably not worth caring about as the buyers are likely clueless and will ignore anything you ask.
If you sell these Articles for real money, then you should definitely be signing them somehow. A real appreciator of the art will want people to know they have a Molecula. Reselling will be of a Molecula not a “look wot I done last night”.
Based on what I see in your Gig (mighty purdy work I must say and nice album covers they would make - shame a music album doesn’t even make me a visible fraction of the cost of one of your pics) I think that you should be signing more clearly. If you are moving to a new phase of drawing whatever that thing you say is, then it should still be signed clearly - unless you are actually a Ghost Artist.
ReSellers do not get far with me. I am not completely opposed as if eg a Music Supervisor came to me and said “I want to buy a track from you for $10,000 for Avatar 2” (and they sell it to James for $20,000) no dramas at all. Everyone wins. However, my experience with ReSellers is that they have either already bought the job for far too little to actually do the job and they have no skills at anything (except following buyers) and expect I will do their terrible job for even worse pay, whist they mismanage both the real buyer and myself - and then complain that I am not a cool guy; or they are merely probing me for lowest cost to try to win that job which is a waste of my time. Avoid that slime like the slime that it slimily is.
I hope that helps in some way.
