I'm a game developer looking for artists to make concept art for my game characters/world and character design. (Yes, I'll pay them. No 'free advertising :D' stuff. This doesn't pay bills).
The thing is, I really don't know HOW to. I've got some contacts already but I don't have a 'how-to' to make the requisition. How do I ask for it? What do I send? Should I send reference images for 'something like that'? What kind of information would be nice to have when you are being asked for this?
I know that personality and background, both for the character and the scenario is a must, but what else should I send?
How would you, as an artist, like to receive such a requisition and in what format, with what content/things asked?
