Oekaki Rules and Information
by Tess @ Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:13 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:

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.

Well obviously I can't draw grass.

Anyway, that little witch doesn't seem too disturbed that there's a giant rune talking to her. Maybe they're chatting about how pretty the sky is... <3

Timer is probably off. I left my laptop open for quite some time. But it did take me a while to figure out what the heck I was gonna put in the background. Ah well ;-;

I'm glad you do!
I've been a little bit busy, but it will be done today.:)

Edit: I went to go finish it but now the drawing program is blocked on my computer by a virus protection program.
Once that's sorted out the drawing will be done. :)

Sorry for the wait. :(

This is really wonderful! I love the intricacy, and the runes are awesome. It must have been quite the job to keep those snakes tangling in the right pattern. What kind of english project is this for?

Thank you so much! For my English Project we have to read any book we want and then make a project out of it so I chose Norse Mythology and decided to draw 2 digital drawings based off of what I read (the other one is like 2 posts back in my gallery)

woah, I love this !! the colors you used are very aesthetically pleasing, and the textures fit in really well. not many people use the textures in their art styles, especially with realism and semi-realism, so I really appreciate you using them in such a neat way! 0: <33

Edit: episode 12 can go down in history as the best thing in 2016.
Edit Edit: episode 12 needs to be shoved in a tube and stolen by Nicolas Cage because it's a national treasure.

Wanna Be Your Victim

"You're so hypnotizing
Could you be the devil?
Could you be an angel?
Your touch, magnetizing
Feels like I am floating
Leaves my body glowing
They say be afraid
You're not like the others"

I got dragged back into Yugioh and I have to say i'm digging the new stockholmshipping, a lot better name than tendershipping imo and it fits with my headcanons more.

Follow up picture to "Strangers"

Thought of this picture when I was listening to a song called "Ghosting" by Mother Mother
It made me really think of Iris and Asriel, and how their relationship would develop over time of bonding and mistakes.
Iris grew up almost completely alone, having been cast out from her small pack years ago. She doesn't remember much of them and therefore doesn't know how to interact with anyone so she comes off as cold or distant. However, eventually she'd become like an older sister or even mother figure to Asriel, as Asriel didn't really bond with her real parents. They'd travel together and hunt together before being separated in a forest fire.

Edit; Woah, how did this get into Intermediate ;O;

~Tornado~ @ Thu May 18, 2017 2:36 pm

Oh my word this is stunning! The atmosphere anatomy and overall feel to the piece is just amazing!
