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.

oh my goodness.... thank!!!!!!!!!!!!

(yes he is, he is my son and I will protect him)

Been working on and off on this, a new drawing for the new year! I'm pretty happy with the outcome. c:

If you remember a few years back, I actually made a piece similar to this one, it's a bit of a redraw! (Was almost tempted to keep that screenshot like effect but decided to keep it painterly).

Side by side comparison.

What is "FLCL" Anyway?
by rainiepainie ;; @ Sat Dec 10, 2016 2:11 pm [Reply]

I'm not sure if you can tell by my siggy or icon already, but FLCL is one of my most fave shows of all time. I dunno, there's just something about it that makes me love it, besides the animation and soundtrack. <3 Also Haruko is my fave :B
Wow, this has been my first Oekaki drawing on here since.. 2013/14 I think? My art has gone through a lot of changes since then lol.

liontamer321 @ Tue Jan 17, 2017 10:27 pm

I don't know how to make bgs lol they are my enemy >:l

kryticalcanine @ Tue Jan 17, 2017 10:32 pm

Hehe just finished it! XD

Yea 6 years of drawing and this is the best I've done
I've only done backgrounds traditionally and they turn out really bad but this is my first time doing a digital background woo

SoupPupped @ Tue Jan 17, 2017 10:42 pm

This is gorgeous! The layering with the grass adds distance, the rocks are shaded very well, the sky looks plain but not flat, and it's all composed very well. It looks cartoony, but not too cartoony, so overall it's incredible!
Keep up the amazing work. Hope to see more landscapes from you in the future. c:

And a mind of thoughts and secrecy


Criticism is encouraged!!

These are a pairing of mine and okauis of our kalons
The red boy is Bacchus, and he is a servant of the princess, Kalliope, whom seems to have fallen asleep very inconveniently in the cold. Bacchus is sharing his scarf and using his fire powers to keep her warm without awakening her!

Watch Your Back!
by TheKindredSpirit @ Wed Jan 11, 2017 8:37 pm [Reply]

Krinh should watch her back while traveling through the forest! The hunter just may become the hunted! All character rights belong to me. I haven't drawn in the Oekaki since 2011 Wow! and I can see why...trying to do this with a laptop mouse pad is almost impossible! ugh! hopefully I figure out the controls more easily, like how to blend etc...I'm not to proud of this pic but I do enjoy it cause I haven't put my character Mathew or Kiara on anything in a while. Krinh belongs to a good friend and we did an art trade together (she's the little fox hybrid on the bottom thinking "oh crap!" :?
