Oekaki Rules and Information
by Tess @ Sun Sep 30, 2012 11:56 pm [Reply]

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;

Oekaki-specific Rules

What you should do:

  • Keep comments polite, helpful, and relevant to the artwork. Critique is allowed if requested by the artist - but bare insults are not welcome here.
  • Make an effort to post your drawing in the correct board. For example, if you color in an Editable drawing, post it into the 'Colored-in' board. If you are new to oekaki and your artwork isn't of a very high standard yet, post in the Beginners board until you've had more practice.
  • If using an editable, follow the artist's rules! This may include leaving a signature/watermark layer on the final image, or may prevent you from selling colored-in versions as adoptables.
What you shouldn't do:
  • Don't post excessively bloody/gory/violent images, nudity, or anything else which might be inappropriate for younger viewers.
  • Do not post blank canvases in the contests board. Contests may be posted there only if you provide a lineart or background for contestants to use in their entries. If you don't need people to edit something in particular, go to the Regular Art Competitions Board to create your topic. You can still make a rule that your contestants make their entries in the Oekaki boards if you prefer it that way.
  • Don't make Oekaki drawings with just words or puzzles written on them. The oekaki is for sharing artwork, not for displaying a message or playing a forum game.
  • Don't spam the oekaki with random 10 second scribbles or advertisements and trade requests.
  • Religious themes are allowed in most boards EXCEPT in the Editable or Adoptable boards. Please keep these images for the Beginners, Intermediate, or Sketches boards instead.
  • Don't post offensive images imposing your beliefs on others. You are free to express your beliefs in a peaceful way, but not by hating on or denouncing any other person or group of people.
  • Don't create Oekaki topics just to share art you've created elsewhere. Art drawn in another program should be posted in the appropriate board (for example: non-Oekaki adopts go in User-made Adoptables).

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:
http://www.chickensmoothie.com/oekaki/settings.php

Help:
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.

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.

RIP Avicii
by ♡ ElizabethPine ♡ @ Sat Apr 21, 2018 3:39 pm [Reply]

Rest in peace, Avicii. You will be remembered by everyone.

September 8, 1989 {Stockholm, Sweden}
April 20, 2018 {Muscat, Oman}

I'm aware this is horrible, I just decided to draw this in memory of him.

thereallps121 @ Mon Apr 23, 2018 11:43 am

Avicii had a huge impact on my life. I listened to him when I went through a rough period in my life, and whenever I was really happy. I miss him a lot, and he taught me so many things.

A lot of his fans miss him. He died young too.

.patrick @ Mon Apr 23, 2018 1:28 pm

oh my gosh... I had to search it up since I didn't believe it for a second..!

I wasn't a huge fan, but there were a couple songs that I loved of his... Rest in pieces, Tim
*sighs* Everyone has their time to leave the world of music, and this wonderful world of life, but it wasn't his time.
28 is a very young age to die at...

All us fans will remember you, Avicii.

Sleeping at Last wrote:
When we woke up
The world was figured out
Beyond the beauty we’ve dreamt about.
This brilliant light is brighter than we’ve known,
Without our darkness to prove it so.
Still, we can’t help but to examine it,
To add our question marks to periods.
At the foot of our bed, we found an envelope…

“You are enough.”
These little words, somehow they’re changing us.
“You are enough.”
So we let our shadows fall away like dust.

When we grew up,
Our shadows grew up too.
But they’re just old ghosts
That we grow attached to.
The tragic flaw is that they hide the truth

That you’re enough.
I promise you’re enough.
I promise you’re enough, I promise you.

“You are enough.”
These little words, somehow they’re changing us.
“You are enough,”
So we let our shadows fall away like dust.
“You are enough.”
These little words, somehow they’re changing us.
Let it go, let it go, “You are enough.”
So we let our shadows fall away like dust.


For anyone out there feeling down, just know - you are enough. Even when it doesn't feel like it, you are loved, valued, and needed, and that God loves you <3

Lord Ghirahim
by Lostfairy @ Mon Apr 23, 2018 11:10 am [Reply]

"Show a human a little mercy and the next thing you know, he think's your his equal."-Ghirahim (Skyward Sword)

Soooooo, I drew Ghira again, heh. Lately, I've been obsessed with him and he's such a fun character to drawwwwwwww. XD I had a lot of fun trying new eyes out, using this as a rough reference. And his hair, I kinda looked at this but changed a ton. And for his cloak, I used this picture from the game.

As alwayssss, I used my good ol' mouse, please don't steal this, and timer is not accurate.

I love feedback (not looking for critiques at the moment, please! ^.^) and likes! It's all appreciated and mean so much to me, you don't even know! (Feel free to look at my other art, if you're interested!)

ANARCHY ! ! @ Mon Apr 23, 2018 11:57 am

Do you side with the angel sisters (Panty and Stocking) or demon sisters (Scanty and Kneesocks).

Made these today and added some of my own lineart to it as well!



#1,3 and 5 are EACH 5 chicken dollars, #3,4 and 6 are EACH 7 chicken dollars! <3

2 per person, 1 preferably.

If you want one just send me a trade with the dollars and add the massage " This was for your adoptables! "

Before you trade me add a post to this tread saying which one you want, first come first serve.

:3 :D Hope you have a good day/night!
