You don't really have to be able to draw, but you do have to have an organized plan for the game your designing.
For instance, let's say that you could not draw well and you had no idea what the characters in the game are going to look like-THEN, is where you would have a problem. If you don't know how to draw, BUT you have the character's look inside your head, it's easier to ask somebody to draw it for you, giving good, SPECIFIC details, going down the list.
For example, let's say your doing a mid-evil game with knights and dragons, you would get someone who could draw and say something like, "His head would be a peanut shape, he's very cocky, so maybe a smirk on his face, he has big green eye and his hair is brown and messy and his bangs are covering one of his eyes" then, you would keep going down the line, describing maybe, is armour for instance.
Another idea is this, look on the internet to see some pics of what your characters are then print them off and trace the features you like about them, then when you've got ALL the features, combine them. Hope this helps =^_^=
