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.

Piercing gaze
by ~Teya~ @ Tue Jan 16, 2018 9:58 am [Reply]

Hidden in shadow and fog, hidden in the night, he stood there, watching you.
What did he wish? To kill, to run? He just stood there, in the dark, illuminated by the moon and nothing else.
His piercing gaze almost seemed to touch your soul, corrupting your innocence with a mere glance of his slit, violet eyes. But at the same time, this creature, this thing, looked at you, fearfully, as if you could somehow harm him, and not the other way around.


Hehe, I actually finished this yesterday at around 1 AM .. sorry not sorry ..

Anyways, I would love some helpful critique and any comments you guys might have!<3

Okay so first of all I made this drawing to do a competition for designing some outfits I can draw her in, prizes would be art would anyone be interested?

Secondly I drew three hairstyles for her and then I put them all on to see what they looked like and honestly I'm kinda digging it but it would be harder to draw but also it looks a lot more like real curly hair
So do you prefer this maybe with overall more hair fluff and curls

or do you like the way I normally draw her hair?

I would really like to hear some feedback I'll be using this drawing as a refrence for quite a few things and maybe that competition if people would actually enter

coolwhipp @ Sat Jan 13, 2018 2:09 pm

hEY ! ! ah i'd ? ? totally enter ? ? just my opinion , i'm 120 % positive a ton of other people would join ! ! : oc
second of all selina's hair is gorgeous ! ! she's def one of my personal fav characters out there . i feel like the short / usual hairdo is best complimenting to her design & such , + it'd be easier on the hand during drawing aha ! ! cc :
can't wait to see what you do ! !

i have an explanation... i changed the setting halfway through the drawing and couldn't fix the lighting without dying immediately (edit: i said the wrong thing at first pfft)

phEW i did this all in one sitting and i am... tired... (the reason it says there's more than one drawing session is bc i had to exit out to post it in a different forum)

hazel? going for a city and some water for when they don't know what to put in the background? it's more likely than you think. it's kind of a weird city. this is an au drawing.

i'm actually kinda proud of this?? which is rare for me but!! i am!! i love marina so much!

I missed my one year anniversary on cs. Well, I forgot to notice it anyways, I guess I did celebrate it with the beach event lol
I was going to do all the sushi cats having a food fight with shari, but I couldn't get them all to fit, so I think I'll be doing them one at a time like this.
