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 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 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.

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.

I no longer have You

No longer can I pet your little Fingers

No longer can I hear your Cries

I can't hear your little Squeaks
I can't watch you Stare
I can't feel your little rodent Ears

I miss you my sweet Hanzo

Your soft little Body

I miss you.....And will always Love you.....

by .Rakuen. @ Thu May 28, 2020 6:13 am [Reply]

One of her lines, at least in the Japanese version is "By nature, Digimon don't have gender" and she's literally the colors of the nonbinary flag so you can fight me for this, but it's true.



Trying to find official art as a reference for renamon:

You should watch one of the anime series :o they're great! If you ever become interested, renamon is in the Tamers arc :)

Definitely experimenting with the lineless and the shading in this one lol

This is art for Redbirdtrooper12 of Bubbles! Feel free to remove any effects or add some of the hidden layers that I hid because I didn't know if they looked good or not with all the experimental stuff-

So what? I'm B R C R A Z Y O K E N
by River Rain @ Wed May 27, 2020 3:40 pm [Reply]

So I wanted to draw Riv being possessed by Glitchtrap basically- I wanted to draw this for a while actually and since my speedpaint for FUNHOUsE is going downhill- ...DARN YOU FUNFUN F E D D Y!!!!! qvq why can i no draw u rn ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

But yeah here we are I guess-
I mean in a way this is more personal to me than it may seem, after all I am a bit crazy tbh...or just flat out weirdly insane, at least I feel like it. And in a way I can slowly express that-

ehhhh anyways I think I could have done a bit better but I honestly just made this without really thinking with as much brain power as I would do considering it is night time and I don't really draw that often during this time...cuz I go to bed at like...8 lol...on purpose too.

ahhhhhh I am dying lol qvq
I am rlly stressing out hah- rn I wanna just...lay in bed...w/Chunky the Charmander and watch YT but I also wanna draw...I didn't really do anything too productive today which is freaking me out so I might have to stay up overnight :>
I still got to draw for two more ppl, make a speedpaint (which I am holding back part 3 of FUNHOUsE sorry but I am having trouble drawing Funtime Freddy which...WHY HE IS EASY AS HECKN TA DRAWWWWWW!!! >:( I think I might have a bit of art block but at the same time not really? It is weird...but it probs cuz I spent three days without drawing...) BUT I am drawing something else that I like which will be up soon...I just need to add a tad bit more and I will be done with recording.
I also am thinking of a new prof pic to fit with my latest mood rn-

awhuwhidhwidh qvvvvvvvq

sobble @ Wed May 27, 2020 3:18 pm

oh mood to all of this but most of the time i end up laying and doing nothing - charmander buddies r the best though, i have one too!!

tbh? its 100% ok to take breaks, lay in bed and watch some youtube, or draw even smth small if you feel the creative inspo , im sure people will understand that no artist is a machine :)

ikr charmander buddies r da best (wait u gotta charmander plush too?! haha I got this big one from a friend, that's why I called him Chunky lol).
And yeah I agree w/that tbh, tho I feel like whenever I do all this stuff that makes me comfortable I get paranoid about my work (weather it be school, commissions, etc.) and I get in this back and forth state on weather or not I should do which or not qvq haha that D R A I N S me lol.
