Artists of all levels of skill are welcome to draw here!
All images made in the oekaki board must follow our general Art Rules - however, there are some extra rules specific to the Oekaki that you should be aware of;
Selecting a different version of ChibiPaint
We have 2 versions of ChibiPaint to choose from. The newer version (ChibiPaint v2.0) allows you to use extra features like rotating your canvas.
You can choose "ChibiPaint v2.0" on your Oekaki settings page here:
If you don't know how to get started, go to the Beginner Oekaki. When you create a 'New Topic' it will load ChibiPaint for you.
You need Java to view it, and once you create and send a picture it will feature at the top of your new topic.
Try these guides before asking questions:

Frequently Asked Questions
How does art get 'featured' for the front page?
Featured art is hand-picked by a staff member to make it appear on the front page. Only recent artwork can appear in the featured box. The lucky artists are chosen if we think their drawing is particularly beautiful or creative and deserving of special attention. Often some of the site's 'best' artwork doesn't get featured because we believe it will attract enough attention on it's own.
Will you feature my artwork please?
We don't take requests or recommendations. There are not many places available for featured art, so many people just miss out. Don't take it personally, if you haven't been featured then your drawing is just one among tens of thousands which didn't get featured that week. It doesn't mean we think you're unworthy, it just means you're not incredibly lucky.
How does art get into the "most popular" categories?
The "most popular" boards are sorted automatically based on the number of "likes" they have. They are set up to include the top images from a range of different boards so that even Beginners and Sketches have a chance of being displayed amongst the top Intermediate artwork.
Can COPPA users post in the oekaki?
Yes, but all of their posts require post approval from a moderator before they appear in the forum.
I'm a COPPA user. What happened to my post? When will it be approved?
If you don't see your recent post appearing in the oekaki boards then it is probably waiting for a staff member to approve it. This might take a few minutes, or a few hours, depending on how many staff are available right now. Please be patient, staff have to read and approve nearly 1000 posts per day, sometimes it just takes a while for yours to be seen.
Special thanks to kip! for naming my new character, Toonie!
Ever since I drew this first picture of Toonie,others wanted me to draw him more. So, here he is! And a fullbody to be exact!
I know there's a few errors, but like the old day cartoons, the characters don't really follow the anatomy rules! Which leaves me open for new things and artistic freedom. In art, rules are always meant to be broken to grow as an artist.
Other than that, feel free to draw him!
All I ask is to credit me, and PM me with the link to the drawing so that way I can see! ChickenSmoothie doesn't have a way to notify people if they've been mentioned. (And please don't claim him as yours)

eeee thank you so much!
I actually like how this one turned out. I don't really know why, but I do.
Anyways, I was just trying to have fun with some more pastel colors and shading from an odd angle, so here's a lovely little astronaut. I used various suits from the Apollo missions for reference.

this is really cute!! i love the design! it's simple but still really interesting!!
I haven't used Chicken Paint in a very long time, and since I got a new laptop, I'm looking for a new paint tool. I've been using Sketchbook in the past, and it's really good, but I don't really have time to use it since I got this computer.
