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 draw a dog, post it in the "Animals/Creatures" board.
  • 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 in the other 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 ChickenPaint
We have 3 versions of the Oekaki program to choose from. The newest version (ChickenPaint v2.0) allows you to use extra features like layer clipping, layer groups, and layer masks.
You can choose "ChickenPaint v2.0" on your Oekaki settings page here:
oekaki/settings.php

Help:
If you don't know how to get started, go to the board you want to create a piece in. When you create a 'New Topic' it will load ChickenPaint 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 all different categories have a chance of being displayed.

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.

I'm not entirely sure whether this belongs in anthro or animal. The most human thing about her is her hands, and even they aren't human.
Maybe we need a board for aliens. (She's an alien. Yes she's supposed to have four thumbs and four elbow joints.)

there was a small moth on a sweet potato in our kitchen and i went in to pet it, expecting it to fly away, but it didn't. So i got it some sugar water, and gave it to it. Again, i thought it would drink it, but it did! it had such a cute little tongue

it was a good 5 minutes

Happy birthday to my boy Florence! can't believe it's been 5 years now since I posted the first oekaki of him.

Man I really gotta update his profile, Florence actually has quite a bit of stuff going on compared to my other characters. My boy is infected with a parasitic flower that's pretty much turning him into a monster and he ultimately is fated to go completely feral and will have to be killed off. Yeah, he doesn't have the happiest story lol

Two characters interacting

Ramble ahead alert
I just started thinking and didn't stop
sorry


So I feel like even though Shyshie has a special connection to each of the Storm birds, after she frees them from the Ocean Princess's control she becomes actual friends with Scirocco. He's always been the one who was most interested in mortal life, in learning about even the more mundane things.

He was always fascinated by songs, stories, poetry, and the way changing the infections in a voice can change the entire meaning of a sentence, how the same words can mean love or hate simply by the tone. Being the keeper of wind he's always restless, and being trapped in a stone for years at a time only exacerbated his wanderlust. He relates to Shyshie different than his siblings do. She feels pulled between land and sea, selkie and mortal, and he constantly feels torn between his duties and the desire to travel, to abandon all semblance of responsibility, and just go.


He was interested in Shyshie from the beginning since she was different than all the Stormkeepers before her, being of mixed blood, far younger than any other, and a defiant attitude towards the Princess.

Since Shyshie was so young and reckless, Scirocco decided to self appoint himself as her confidant and counselor, trying to guide Shyshie in her newfound power and they quickly bonded more than the other two Storm Birds.

Tal and Astrapi both care about Shyshie's wellbeing, as its their duty, and they do like her, but but the friendship isn't as strong between them.

Partly because after being released from the Ocean Princess Tal and Astrapi were both able to choose for themselves how and where to spend their time and energy.

Tal hasn't really befriended any mortals, of all the siblings retaining the more aloof and distant. He prefers to spend his time alone, and is happiest that way.

Astrapi seems to delight in strong, stoic, and steadfast mortals, the apparent opposites of her personality. She has befriended the likes of Bella, Fern Rose, and Jasmine.

People who would be described as stiff or even humorless. Astrapi feels like they balance her out
and while they are often capable characters they are often overlooked, unfairly in Astrapi's opinion, so she enjoys the shocked attention it brings when she chooses to be at their sides.
