History and Art of Children's Book Illustration
(Short) History and Art of Children's Book Illustration
Children's Book Illustration would be defined like any type of picture or decorative work produced for books specifically intended for a youthful audience. This article tend to give people a large idea of what is children's book illustration. I'm not going into details, but speaking a bit about what we do (illustrators) is another step to recognize that our job is an entire form of Art.
Also, this article will be added to the library of our deviantART group childrensillustrators
:pointr: A short History of Children's Book Illustrations.
+ The beginning.
Although children's literature had its beginnings in the early seventeenth century, with books intended to teach rather than to amuse, it was not until the mid-eighteenth century that books intended specifically for children books began to emerge. By the nineteenth century there was an established market for children's books

Rules? Pffttt I don't need rules! I'm better!
Think you are above the rules? Think again!
This news submission focuses on the rules of DeviantArt, not only DA however, but also areas within DA itself, that being stock, gallery, forum and group rules for the main part.
First of all Gallery submission rules.  There have already been several news articles on this subject.. all with one main aim.  Making people understand that the guidelines for submitting a piece of work are there FOR A REASON!  Do not be surprised if your piece of work gets moved to scraps by the gallery director because you “couldn’t be bothered” to check the submission criteria…
Forum/chat/comment rules.  COMMON SENSE AND COURTESY!!  Get with the rest of the world and show a little respect for other people whom you intentionally surround yourself with on DA. (Nobody is forcing you to use this site!)  We all have feelings, we all get upset and we all have opinions, just remember that be

Help Make the :thrust: Emote Offical!
Dear DeviantART,
          Emoticons are a very big part of the DeviantART culture. They are used in moods, news, fourms, chat, journals, descriptions, comments, etc. We currently have many great emotes that are used constantly, such as :hug:, :), :(, :love:, :heart:, :thumbsup:, :nod:, etc.; however, there are many more that could be added to expand this great list of emoticons.
          Some emoticons that were used only by dAx (or some other extension like Zikes) have recently been made official! These include :noes:, :ohnoes:, :manhug:, and :shakefish:
          Many people, including myself, have thought that the original thrust emoticon by starbunnies should be made official.

Photomanipulation Contest to be Judged May 31
The challenge runs through May 31 and will have you featured in my journal and other journals (listed below). I'll also draw something really pretty for each first place winner, inked, coloured, mailed to you and all! Two winners for each category will be chosen, plus a few other "runners up", all of which will be featured. To begin, choose one or both categories and create through photomanipulation the creature/character.
One: This character--lion's head, six breasts, four arms and the staff as well if you like.
Two: This creature--lion's body, mask/human face, multitudes of human arms.
I thought these were pretty interesting challenges for manipulators to do, especially if you're into fantasy and legends! Give it a try.
You can enter both categories or just one, but send only one submission per category

Square2 (vol.3)
The square has some interesting possibilities . First of all you never have to choose between horizontal or vertical position . As I said before , with square many routes for the eyes can be made : triangles (G2,J1) , diagonals (D1,D3,E1) , diamonds , where everything points to the center (E3,F1,F2,G3,H2,J3) , ovals (J2) . . .
For symmetry (E3,F1,F2,G3,H2,J3) , there is space enough , even if the axis of the composition is not exactly in the middle . Within the square you can very well put that axis higher or lower, without hitting the head or bottom of the frame .
Of course all of this can be done with the rectangular format as well, but in my opinion the square has more to offer here .
Enjoy . . .
