Tip > How to prepare to contact a cartoonist (Opens on Our TV Worlds Site)
Sub answer 2: You will need to be able to explain what you require to the cartoonist. Write down what you have in mind and do so in a format you can email over to the artist. Explain what content you would like. What characters, the body positions. expressions and anything else that is relevant. Consider the background (if any) and explain what you picture the outcome to be, use links to other things and explain what it is in the link you would like to have represented similarly.
The better you can express the picture you have in mind into words for the cartoonist to interpret the easier it is for the cartoonist to produce a result that matches your expectations. If you need to show images that are Disney or Warner Bros etc in order to get your point across but are worried about the cartoonists reaction, don’t be worried as the cartoonist will have heard it before and can adapt anything you see into something that in no way infringes on any copyrights and things like that by producing original artwork. If you can draw a rough sketch and scan it to send as an attachment that can help to. Don’t go sending attachments to cartoonists until you have established contact though, as I know I don’t open anonymous attachments, I hope you don’t and cartoonists will likely not do so either.
If you have some colours you want used say so. Include things like Hex numbers for example. If you want a Teddy Bear to be bright pink with blue spots tell the cartoonist: I want a Pink Teddy Bear using the hex colour #FF1CAE as the base colour with blue spots using the hex colour #00B2EE as the base for the spots. I say base as you might want shading or highlighting, if so say so. All making sense?
You would then go on to explain that you wanted big spots or little spots and that you want 5 or 10 spots and that you want one spot over the left eye, things like that. Keep it simple be concise but get your picture that you have in mind across to the cartoonist. The more you can explain the better the result you will get & in a faster time. Conciseness in this regards can save a lot of time so if you do have an idea on colours to use please research them before contacting a cartoonist. For your convenience here is a handy list you can use of Hex Colours.
