November is Art History Stock & Resources month :party:


:bulletpink: Here are some hints n tips about submitting.....
    :bulletpink: Create the News Article as you normally would in your own Journal portal. N.B If you create this as a 'Journal' rather than 'News', when you submit it to the Group it will show up in the Gallery, rather than the Blog. :bulletpink: Choose to submit to Groups at the last page, after formatting and select ArtHistoryProject. You may also submit to any Group you Admin for, providing it is relevant. In fact I would encourage this as it will spread the Project further - many people will be yet to hear about it. e.g. I submit my Pinup & Glamour stuff to my Death-Chicks Group, as it fits the theme.

    :bulletpink: It doesn't matter what Art you usually create. You can get involved with any area. This is about what YOU can contribute. You are not stepping on anyone’s toes by picking a subject that other artists major in; there is nothing to force them to take part, so the community might miss out on that area all together if you don’t step up!

    :bulletpink: You may use the AH CSS Skin if you wish, but most have been using the CR one. It's up to you. :bulletpink: You may double up on days if needed :aww: :bulletpink: CHAT is all Year round - you do not need to wait to be asked to host Chat events :D

Why not have you and Claire do a collab on the basics of collab stocking? You two are pros at it!

Anything about the history of stock, or how vital life models are, or referencing from real life would be cool. <3

I might do one about the importance of referencing from real life and life models.

I'd like to write articles on William-Adolphe Bouguereau on November 10th, John William Waterhouse on November 13th (^Elandria did an article on him several months back, so if you'd prefer me not to do another on him I am totally okay with that.), Sir Frederic Leighton on November 20th, Sir Francis Bernard Dicksee on November 23rd and John William Godward on November 27th... I had already planned on a series of articles and stock features on these artists so this is a great time to start. I know this is primarily for stock/resources but can we also feature art that is in the style of these artists if they are using the stock I feature as well... kind of like the "From This to That..." series?

All sound PERFECT! :D

I've moved the article from the 10th to the 9th however, as ^Kaz-D had something planned for the 10th. If this is an issue then by all means keep it as the 10th. :) Is this ok?

The 9th is fine. I was just wanting to spread them out as much as possible so anyone else interested in writing something had days available to choose from.

I'm doing another article which specifically looks at the models of the pre-Raphaelite brotherhood but you are totally welcome to use the same formatting for any artist you are interested in :D The titles will just be "muses of the masters - name of master" Erin is doing some as well for artists she loves :nod:

I saw that you were doing a muses article. :D I am planning on focusing on true art history including artist bio, a break-down of their individual style, artistic influences (if known) and artists they influenced and any anything else I think of at the time of writing :) To tie it in with Stock & Resources, tough, I am going to do a "stock to art" feature that compliments the style of each artist I'm writing about, including models, locations and object stock, if that is okay. Hopefully there won't be to much repetitive information but since we all have different writing styles it should be okay :) I have been planning a series of articles on these artists, and others actually, for about 4 months. Just hadn't decided on when to start them, now is a perfect time :)

I am sure the formatting will be similar if not the same and the titles are fine with me. I'll let you know if I have any questions. We are allowed to use the CR journal CSS for these if we wish to? Which I believe means this skin: [link]?

Also, I notice that Erin is doing a general stock article, not necessarily "art history" related, regarding her "So you wanna be a stocker?" article. Since I primarily focus on child stock in terms of the majority of my model stock in my gallery, could I do an article on child stocking? I'll have to think of a title, but the article would focus on getting a child interested in stocking, the benefits of stocking in terms of bonding with a parent and learning to take direction and being able to apply it to other areas of their lives, and promoting a good body image and self esteem among other things.

If that would be okay for an article, I could post it on November 15th?

Child stock is a great idea to use :)

Yea, we can copy (why lie, we shall steal it, darn it! :giggle:) Erin's "So you wanna be a stocker?" And call it "So your kid wants to be a stocker?"

Could we do an article on specific artists and stock that goes with those artists styles? Like Waterhouse and stock that is Waterhouse-esque, for example?

These are a small handful of my favorite artists so I am excited and will begin writing them probably tomorrow! Did you see my question about also featuring art that is in the style of these artists if they are using the stock I feature as well... kind of like the "From This to That..." series? Think that would be okay or should the features that compliment the articles be strictly stock and resources?

Would some kind of article specifically about pose reference fit into this? I'd have to do a little research and figure out what to cover, but since that's kind of my thing, I'd love to represent! ^____^
