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.

Species: Bestia claudus Seauf (english slang of the indigenous people's name which roughly translates to thick greyskin)
Class: Class C
Diet: Herbivore, but will eat small amounts of meat on very rare occasions- much like earth deer.
Description: Seauf are very hardy beasts. They can withstand extreme heats, famine, and even consume the poisonous fungi found in antila Fields. They tend to range from dull greys and browns to muted greens, rarely occuring in black and white morphes. The male specimin's can be extremely hostile over their herds and territories, going as far as 18 km out of their borders when chasing away intruders. The indigenous people have only recently begun capturing and selectively breeding the most docile of the species as a cattle of sorts. Their meat is tough and stringy with a bitter taste. Safe to consume by humans, though is less favourable than most meats.Their dark head humps are used for fighting when showing dominance. They
Environment: Seauf live in the arid deserts and temperate savannahs. They are commonly found in feilds of antila in the desert- which is produces a highly caustic gas which neither humans, or the indigenous people can survive, or in the high grass of the savannah.

Oscar the Skunk
by Blaussel @ Tue Feb 20, 2018 8:50 am [Reply]

Third Painting and no Pen Pressure...
It's my character, Oscar! He's a little skunk on a big adventure.

And since I have time and need to practice painting fur (oh noo), I'm offering 2 - 3 slots for a fullbody painting like this without a background?
They'll be made in Paint Tool Sai, for examples of how they look like check out my Art Topic (link in sig)
As payment.. You can decide how much is fair / enough? xD
Rarities and Dates don't really matter to me anyway ^^

- and a kinda side question, would art like this be good enough for the Intermediate Oekaki or do I need to improve? Please be honest -

Bluejade1324 @ Tue Feb 20, 2018 9:02 am

Ohh! I love the lighting you did on this

'K, so I've never drawn anime before, but I was reading this webcomic, and it is INCREDIBLE, so I decided I had to draw one of the main characters. Also my favorite character. So, meet Ian!

Disclaimer: I don't own the characters, nor the comic haha
another thing. He's a siren (aka merman), so it's not like he's immodest here. Don't worry.

I would LOVE comments. They always make my day!
