Understanding and Appreciating Illustration Paper TopicsIllustration paper topics for your cartoons are exactly that, topics. That's what they are, topics. They're a way of stating what you want to say in the cartoon, and a way of discussing it with other people who share the same ideas.
Your subject, be it a person, an animal, a landscape, or anything else, is your original illustrations. Do not just grab them off the newsstand. Make sure they have copyright papers on them, but also have something to identify your source material such as a website or magazine. Your illustrations can even be linked back to your original source material.
You may be worried about copying your original artwork, but you should be more concerned about your audience. It is in your interest to make your subject as original as possible. Your drawings and paintings will be appreciated by everyone in your circle of friends. The more original and creative your cartoon is, the more attention it will get. It is no good making something like My Little Pony, if it only attracts boys.
When you begin to write your story, you should establish an outline for the cartoon. That outline will guide you as you sit down to work on the actual drawings and paintings. You may come up with some ideas that you can expand upon later, or you may decide that your story is actually going to be a series of cartooning adventures, and concentrate on a single cartoon every week.
The cartoons must be appealing to children and adults alike. Cartoon characters for girls should be pretty but not feminine, while for boys they should be smart, but not strong. Talk about this with other people who are drawing cartoons.
A very popular subject is animals. You can talk about squirrels, pigs, cats, dogs, and so on. Some of these subjects can be used to inspire kids to draw their own pictures and then you can copy the best of these pictures. You might also use a combination of animals and people to write some very clever cartoons.
Illustration paper topics are everywhere. Finding them is what you should be doing when you go to pick up your comic books from the library.
Try looking at the different cartoon publishers who publish comics. You might find one which offers a huge choice of subjects to choose from. If you do find one, then try creating a cartoon from that topic, and post it on your blog or website.
