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.

Hey guys-
I'm thinking of expanding my art shop to doing digital art too, but I need some examples. So just give me a reference and tell me generally what you want, and I might draw it for you.
By doing this, you agree that I can use any art I make for you for examples for my shop.
Please don't get impatient, I'll try to draw as soon as I can but I'm sort of busy right now.
Thanks!

Can do! And don't worry, as always I'll put the owner of the character under the example on my shop, and put a little "no stealing" disclaimer in the rules.

benny tries his hardest to let johnny know he's fine the way he is but "needs to eat more, cmon jon' that's not good for u, but don't get me wrong you're gorgeous either way-"

just like how johnny is sure to tell benny how perfect he is literally every day "b-because you're great, ben, even if you don't think so, really"

    let me draw you like one of my french gals

    so i am in a serious funk and i thought what a better way to get out of the funk was to listen to Dear Evan Hansen and draw some things for yall!!

    This ain't your average shop bc i am a very lazy individual in my down-time so instead i'm just going to do some bad doodles bc who doesn't love a good meme drawing of their beloved characters/sonas ouo and it wont take too much of my will power so i can still function

    SUM NOTES B 4 ORDERING
    -dont expect too much for me dude, what you see up top is prolly what youre gonna get
    -i will draw about anything including closed species!
    -i'll draw everything in red line so tell me if that's not ok
    -im not scared of color im just lazy
    -these are not expensive, 1 CS dollar or a pet in the wishlist or an equally awful doodle is cool too

Thank you! I really do try hard on my lineart. I did my homework and studied some Nepali dresses (Yetis come from Nepal)

by MollPay @ Mon Apr 23, 2018 1:57 am [Reply]

I think that dark colored horses are very mesmerizing, that's probably why I have a freisian too xP.

Anyway, this is a bit out of my style but I tried shading as best as I can.Or is it the best that I can?
