Hi everyone ;w;! I'm looking for a bit of advice and I was hoping I could find some here. uwu

Recently I've been auctioning adoptables of an original species of mine, and I was contacted by a reputable art doll maker looking to make art dolls out of them. They want to turn them into resin cast art dolls and sell batches of them, relying on me to make the designs, and in return they'll pay me $10 (the usual SB/flatrate I sell each design for) for each one, adding an additional $20 for each one that sells (making it $30, or my usual autobuy in the auctions).

I'm not complaining about it and personally think it's a fair price, but at the same time considering they'll be profiting off my original idea, should I be charging any extra for usage rights or etc? What I'm worried about is if she ever raises the price on them, and profits even more off my original idea- should there be a contract of some sort for something like this or even just overall for this kind of agreement? If so, what should it consist of and how would I go about doing one? I've never done anything like this before so I'm a mix of nervous and excited, haha.

Thank you so much in advance for any responses, I really appreciate the help /w\!

This is sort of related, but I am curious of the thoughts on a person making a fursuit from adoptables, that happens too. Original species or not, those designs are made into a tangible good.

That depends on the owner of the adoptables. If the person making the fursuit bought the adoptable, they can make their fursuit or have someone making it for them. If they havent bought it yet, and it is still for sale, I believe it is up to them to either contact the seller with permission to make the suit, or buy the adoptable. If they want to make a fursuit of an adoptable someone else bought, they would have to contact that buyer with request permission to make a fursuit based off of the adoptable.
