Oekaki Rules and Information
by Tess @ Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:14 am [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.

Don't worry.
by wikapl67 @ Sun Apr 30, 2017 10:52 pm [Reply]

Yesterday's post was supposed to say, that I am not dead, I just have school.
Unfortunately my brain decided to do something else - make a character.
You can tell how tired I was by that drawing's description.

I feel like I will have nothing to do when summer decides to come. x.x
I thought about witing the 'Not a Dairy' thing for a long time (even created a few characters), but questioned myself ''Is it really a good idea?". Suggestions will be appriciated.

Also - the character above is a reboot of a gary stu named 'Pain', that was kewl for me in 2013.
...He was an edgy warrior cat with an emo bang, 'tragic backstory' and attidute. He could teleport. I have no idea why, 'cause there was no reason for him to do so.
Now his name is 'Alyx' and he's a friendly house cat, that has nothing to do with 'Warrior Cat' series.
(This character went from 100 to 0 owo)
I am so glad, that I didn't have an account on art sharing websites back then. x.x
Well... I wouldn't post my art anyway.

Coula female
by space cadet @ Mon May 01, 2017 1:14 am [Reply]

Females are roughly the same size as males, but are curvier with sloped shoulders, have nipples, and a little more head hair.
(If this is somehow inappropriate, I can cover her up)

average size sketch
by cuervo @ Mon May 01, 2017 12:10 am [Reply]

the height numbers below the name mean the height of the person in their human form. so, a 6 foot tall person would have their beast form around the size of that in the drawing. (i still dont have a name for them rip)

they're covered in a weird 'hair' that seems like both feather and fur. its also water repellant and keeps them warm - its just called "fluff".

they can also have varying horns - usually horns that resemble that of a goat's or ram. sometimes they may have reindeer antlers. their tails also vary.

there is a "subspecies" of these that is much larger and have mutiple features. (four ears, four eyes, four wings, way too many legs ... as well as 'bird-like" limbs.)

Coula male
by space cadet @ Mon May 01, 2017 1:00 am [Reply]

An alien species thing
Coula are chameleon cat people and I love them

Features:
- large pointed ears
- A majority of coula have curly hair
- Prehensile tails
- Four-fingered hands; two-toed feet
- The ability to change colors with mood, environment, and other factors
- Males have no nipples or external genitals, females have nipples but no breasts before lactating
- They lay eggs; one at a time
- Humanlike capabilities of expression and speech. They often live alongside humans in communities and are treated as citizens.
- Neutral colors are a flesh tone: every coula has its own default
- Only skin changes colors
- Brightly colored flesh/muscles/organs
- Reflective pupils that widen and slit similar to those of a cat

Seasonal foxers based on this drawing by astral.
by astral. @ Sat Apr 29, 2017 3:23 am [Reply]

They gain traits based on which season their powers are linked to.
For example, Winter = ice powers, Spring = power of flight, Autumn = invisibility, Summer = ability to make anything grow anywhere, etc.

Species Interest
by DollyDo @ Sun Apr 30, 2017 11:03 pm [Reply]

aah even if they don't get much traction i still might do them cause omg im getting attached to them already

ok so they're kinda dragon dog kirins (it's been done i know lmao)

key features:
- Front legs have hooves
- long swirly whiskers
- small noses
- long eyelashes
- long necks, tongues, fur, and tails

basic info an stuff:
They originate in an ancient chinese type area with mountains and forest where they grew and adapted eventually building their own societies. Their whiskers are an evolutionary adaptation and can be somewhat moved to use to carry light objects, defend them from predators, or to "hold hands" with other of the species. Their eye lashes are also an adaptation to keep the heavy winds and debris out of their eyes. They are quick, agile creatures often running from danger instead of fighting. They are about two feet tall. Their toes are also webbed as the climate they came from is completely swamped in water.

Sketches for Items!
by Stargazing @ Sat Apr 29, 2017 2:03 am [Reply]

I feel like drawing but I don't know what to draw so I'm posting this.
Exactly what it says on the tin, I'm doing sketches for items! Just send a trade with at least one item (preferably a store item but I'm fine either way) and post an image of your character! I'm best at doing anthro and can't for anything draw cats or Viscets so if you order one of those, sorry it's probably going to be terrible!
