Oekaki Rules and Information
by Simon @ Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:13 am [Reply]

All rules regarding forum conduct, child-friendly content, and art use/creation also apply to the Oekaki, but there are also some specific rules that apply only to the Oekaki forums.

    Oekaki Rules
    • Keep comments polite, helpful, and relevant to the artwork. Do not start discussions or debates. Critique is allowed if requested by the artist but insults are not welcome.

    • Make an effort to post your drawing in the correct board. Continued intentional misuse of the forum categories may result in disciplinary action. You can view descriptions of what each board is for in the forum index.

    • Don't spam the Oekaki. Your drawing should show intention and a modest amount of effort. We do not allow random scribbles, simple shapes, or empty/solid color canvases, nor should you post advertisements for trades, streams, or other threads. Covered drawings must still follow the oekaki rules and have art visible, even if they are WIPs.

    • 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 (example: non-Oekaki adoptable characters go in User-made Adoptables).

    • Don't make Oekaki drawings with just words or puzzles written on them. The Oekaki is for sharing artwork, not for displaying a written message or playing a forum game.

    • If using an editable you must 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.

    • Don't post blank canvases in the contests board. Contests may be posted there only if you provide a recognizable lineart or relevant 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. For more specific rules about contests please view this thread.

    • Specific rules apply to the the Adoptable boards on the Oekaki:

      • The Oekaki is for making and sharing art in the Oekaki program. If you’d like to use another program to create your adoptables, please post them in user-made adopts or character design shops. “Cover adoptables” are not permitted, except for “milestone” adoptables in which case the cover must still follow Oekaki rules.

      • You may sell Oekaki art/adoptables for CS pets/items/C$, allowed offsite currency, and dA points/real currency. Keep in mind that CS staff are unable to assist with transactions gone wrong involving other site currency or real currency.
        • Any real currency discussion must occur offsite; please link to where you can be contacted. Do not discuss real currency transactions on CS.
      • Post your adoptables in the correct board. If you want to create just a few adopts, use the Adoptables 1: Independent/One-Off board. If you want to create a closed species, community, and intend to make many adoptables, use the Adoptables 2: Closed Species/Communities board.

      • Follow the rules outlined by the adopt creator(s). Many species owners have their own rules that you must follow in order to successfully participate in their species, so be sure to read their rules before posting. CS staff may enforce a thread owner’s rules if necessary. Note that species rules may not circumvent our official site rules.

      • All Adoptable Oekaki submissions must be judged no later than 1 month after their end date. Staff may intervene if the user fails to select a winner after 1 month. Failure to judge a contest after being reminded may result in a board warning.

      • Users are bound to the species rules published at the time that the user receives the adopt. If a species owner adds a new rule, they cannot punish players for breaking the rule before it was added. This includes revoking or rehoming adopts. Updated adoptable rules apply only to adopts made after the rule was published.

      • Paid-entry raffles are not permitted. You may not charge users for the chance to win something.

      • Competitions with entries requiring artistic/creative effort must end with a winner. The promised prize (in this case the character design) must be awarded at the end of the contest to an entrant, so be sure you want to give the character away. You may only change your mind if there are no forms that meet the competition requirement.

      • If you want to transfer your species to another player, then you will need to notify CS staff beforehand. More information on transferring thread ownership can be found here.

    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.

    If you don't know how to get started, go to the Beginner Oekaki. 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.

Bonus Art for Runaway
by OnnieDoodles @ Fri Oct 30, 2020 3:49 pm [Reply]

Made an extra drawing for Runaway of their oc for part of a commission~

(I'm still trying to get used to drawing through Oekaki,, )

OnnieDoodles @ Fri Oct 30, 2020 3:55 pm

Idk how to tag- or if it's possible, but @Runaway

by Lucikan @ Fri Oct 30, 2020 7:26 am [Reply]

Experimenting with thinner lines and some crosshatching, not entirely sure how I feel about it but thought it might be fun to try! ^^

Also on a side note this will probably be my last drawing on CS for a lil
while I focus on heading into finals starting next month,
but expect a couple surprises when I come back! ;)

Ref: Zian designed by ipphie

lilpupin @ Fri Oct 30, 2020 7:27 am

Its Christmas. fight me
by Warpyunicorn @ Fri Oct 30, 2020 3:28 pm [Reply]

its Christmas.

This took to long


All dusk long, there was something to do. You had either set out after Beo (only to be turned back by a most shadowy hand-in-a-bush), stayed at the camp, or gone with Sybil on the Ghost Tour. Camp was calm, and the rest of the night went off without any issue, thankfully. The Ghost Tour was a blast—mostly because it wasn't some cheesy set-up thing... apparently Sybil actually knew a lot of the ghosts and got them to appear for a chat. Her secondary motive, as some lambies had caught on, was to gather information as well.

The Tour crew headed back as the sky began to brighten in Castellina. A real sunrise, now that's a nice change! Sybil pulled their giant carriage back into the enchanted area, and things shifted to the familiar moon-day blue. She brought them back into the campground proper, and then took a good look around. Everything seemed ok?

She sent the rest of the lambies back to activities or to rest for moon-day and things were peaceful. Too peaceful. As dusk fell, she gathered everyone for Fireside. This time, Beo joined you all.


Beo appears calmer and overall much less bestial than what you saw the other night.
Sybil gestures in his direction, introducing you, "Revelers, this is Beo, for those who have not properly met him. He is known as the Elder of the Children—a protector." Beo nodded at the group, silently.
Before Sybil can continue, somewhere in the crowd a small voice blurts out: "Did you find the monster??" Beo's expression softens at the sound of the lambaby's query and he carefully rests on the ground at everyone's (well, mostly-everyone's) eye level. In a very low rumbling voice, he replies, "Yes. I did."

At this, Sybil rests her head on the ground too, looking at him expectantly like a giant version of all the other curious lambies in the crowd, "Ohhh?"
Beo closes his eyes a moment, and then continues, "A nightmare splinter. A piece of a dream. Chaotic. Mostly harmless," he unfurls a giant paw to reveal a jar with a little shadowy, glowing worm inside. If a worm could look angry, this was an angry shadow worm. "The beast was made of splinters. A panicking nightmare of fragments. I have caught only this one." He sighs gruffly, "I did not know it was made of splinters. Disappointing. I enjoyed the hunt regardless."

Sybil pondered this new information, and combining with what she'd gleaned from the ghosts last dusk, she was starting to piece things together. "So, if it's made of splinters, then the beast is still splintered right now?"
"Yes." came the gruff reply, "If we do not catch it, it will gather together again. It needs to be returned to whose nightmare it split from."
That was good enough for Sybil. "Excellent. For those of you who are feeling brave and ready to get out there, we need help gathering the nightmare splinters. There shouldn't be any forces nearly as scary as what you saw the other night, unless they have a chance to re-form. So let's make sure to beat them to it."

She gathers up as many jars or containers as possible and hands them out, along with a host of butterfly nets and lights of varying types (someone came prepared). Before you leave, she adds: "And stay together!"


This prompt closes tomorrow 10/30, at 10 pm CT!
Time to catch some nightmare splinters... The more, the better. Keep on the lookout for shadow lambies, if you do! Art or writing is ok!

{ Respond with your lambie(s) IC for whatever they find on the hunt! }



KestrelTheFirecat @ Fri Oct 30, 2020 3:07 am

The Hunt is on!
Seafoam walks around to think about what was really desired with the jar and she finds herself walking over to a shadowy figure and sees some shards. She opens the jar and collects most of them. The shards start to form into a small bird. She speaks in suprise and leaps back dropping the jar. The she goes to pick up the jar and looks at it curriouly.

Brezze walks and see some shards and leaps up to grab the shard and puts them in the jar. She smiles as she puts them in the jar and sees that it almost fills the bottom of the jar.As she sees the jar she sees that it was forming into a small shadowy butterfly.

Kate and Astrid walk closely together and they bolth spot a shadowy figure and then see some of the nightmare shards floating around it. They bolth rush forward and collects the shards in their jars.

Queen Vivane @ Fri Oct 30, 2020 3:26 am

The Hunt is on!
Sleeper had done exactly as promised, protecting Babiri to the best of her ability. Admittedly the shadowy hand had startled the pair of them but since it had shown no hostility the pair had simply returned to camp. Awaiting those had gone on the tour or done the same as them and gone after Beo, probably turned away by the hand as well.

She lay by the fire, Babiri nestled safely between her forelegs. He'd long since stopped trembling but had taken a shine to the larger Lambie so both Lambies that made "The Corrupt Celestial Sleeper" had agreed that it was rather nice to have someone to watch over again. They had been quite pleased that he was happy enough to stick with them despite them being two lambicorns pretty much blended together to make one big lambicorn.

6 eyes stared at the jar in a mixture of curiosity and horror. A panicking nightmare of fragments, it was both unnerving and sparked wonderings in Sleeper. Beo's confirmation that there were more splinters still scattered about the forest, firmly set Sleeper on helping with Bairir quick to firmly state that he was coming with her. The pair grabbed as many jars and nets as they could carry with Babiri calmly draping a few strands of fairy lights across himself, much to Sleeper's amusement. Setting out into the forest was less of a rush this time, easily able to meander through and search for more angry-looking worms.

lilpupin @ Fri Oct 30, 2020 7:52 am

The Hunt is on!
That little nightmare splinter may have expected being caught by a hoof or paw, but this is definitely not what it saw coming.
Oobicorn ran off again into the forest, and although he came back with a splinter in a jar he got quite the scolding from mustach-oobicorn. I don't think he'll be doing that again. The gang found two nightmare splinters and have brought them back to Beo and Sybil. Although the group may create nightmares from time to time, they know where they belong, and this world is certainly not it.
