**NOTE: Round 2 of the CN Collab will open on July 1st.  You can only sign up for secondary characters if you have completed your main character claims, so keep working!  Stay tuned for more info!**

Here's how it works - this collaboration focuses on "classic" Cartoon Network characters - i.e. the Cartoon Cartoons, or ones from the Powerhouse Era, roughly 1995-2002. I will post a list of the required characters - the main characters from each cartoon featured - at the end of this journal. In the first round of sign-ups, you can sign up for TWO characters and ONE object. Once all the characters in the required list are completed, I will add another list featuring side characters to fill out the mural further, and then you can sign up again.

Once all the characters are drawn, I will combine them in a big huge mural celebrating classic Cartoon Network!


You don't have to follow me, or even be a DA member to join in the collaboration, but it's HIGHLY recommended at least for the duration of the collab because if I have any updates or new rules, I'm going to send the message here.

Bullet; Yellow Any Cartoon Network character can only be in the collab once. In other words, if someone has already taken him/her/it, then you can't sign up them again.

Bullet; Yellow When we're done, Wickfield will put together all the individual characters onto one big mural.

Bullet; Yellow Traditional or digital mediums are fine. 

Bullet; Yellow Your character must be drawn full body. <<< SUPER IMPORTANT

Bullet; Yellow Your character MUST be in color.

Bullet; Yellow We are NOT including Cartoon Network OCs, FusionFall designs, Toonami characters, OR Characters from post-2002 series (Foster's Home, Flapjack, Adventure Time, etc.)

Bullet; Yellow When you make your character, you must draw him/her/it on a blank background. That means either plain white or transparent. (Transparent is preferred, but I know not all of you have that ability, so white is fine too.)

Bullet; Yellow Your artwork for this collaboration must be new and created after you signed up for a character so that you can showcase your latest work.

Bullet; Yellow You don't have to draw you character just standing, any pose is fine as long as it's not vulgar. 

Bullet; Yellow Do not do your own version of a character. You MUST use the original design. You're allowed to draw them in your own style, though. In fact, we encourage you to use your own style over doing a carbon copy of a character. You're also allowed to embellish the design if you want. Just as long as they still look like them.

Bullet; Yellow We are not doing different versions of the characters. For example, we are not doing Dexter and Action Dexter.

If you use photoshop, but don't know how to make transparent backgrounds, Zimeta has made this handy tutorial::

Bullet; Yellow If you add lighting to your character, the light source must be from the upper-right. Lighting is not a requirement.

Here's the basics for a visual representation (thanks to Zimeta for the example image): 

Bullet; Yellow You will only be able to sign up for two characters, and one object at a time. You will have one month to complete your drawings from the sign up date. If you don't complete your character within one month, you will be dropped, and you won't be able to sign up for that character again. 

Bullet; Yellow The higher resolution you submit your picture, the better! 500 pixels in width or bigger is best.

Bullet; Yellow For submitting, you can either just submit your picture to DA, or you can e-mail it to Make the title of your e-mail "Cartoon Network Collab", so that I recognize it. If you submit it to DA, please post the link in a comment to THIS JOURNAL so I can add it to the collab folder in my favorites.

Bullet; Yellow DO NOT draw your character on lined paper! If you do, I won't accept it. 

Bullet; Yellow You CANNOT USE BASES to make your character. Your art must be all your own.

Bullet; Yellow Please don't draw characters in "chibi" form! 

Bullet; Yellow Do *not* overly sexualize the female characters (or male characters). Keep them as they appear in the movies/shows.

Bullet; Yellow You're not allowed to trace an official Cartoon Network image, although you can use it for reference. Again, your work must be your own.

NO Toonami characters
NO FusionFall designs
NO Cartoon Network OCs
NO Characters from post-2002 series (Foster's Home, Flapjack, Adventure Time, etc.)


As of round two, you will have TWO WEEKS from the day you sign up to finish. If you don't finish on time, your character will be put back in the pile, and you won't be able to sign up for them again.
THERE ARE NO EXTENSIONS. Use your time wisely!

And the final day of the collab will be: To be determined Depends on how fast people are drawing the characters. Generally these massive collabs I do take three months to finish drawing all the characters for.

Star!Star!THE LISTStar!Star!

You may sign up for ONE or TWO characters from the main character list.

Thank you!  I added it to the folder.  Now all you need to do is keep your eyes peeled for the next round of signups in case you want to tackle a side character. :)

Hello. I am not sure if you have facebook, but this should probably be visible for you. This person has shamelessly drawn over your "It's our little secret" piece, and several others, which were fortunately taken down. But for some reason, they won't take action about this one…

Just thought you would like to know.
