Oekaki Rules and Information
by Tess @ Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:17 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:

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.

Colour the egg, get a character!
by Flerken. @ Tue Jul 16, 2019 8:42 am [Reply]

So I want to try one of these c:

I am not super fond of oekaki, so what better way to get practice, that force myself to use it more.
Edits to eggs allowed
I will work with the design/colour you give me c:

❌ I have a crazy work schedule, please don't rush me
❌ I don't do anthros sorry.
❌ You may request certain things, but If they don't end up on the final design please don't throw a fit
PLEASE allow me access to edit the egg, so I can add the character there
❌ Go wild, have fun c:

Thanks for the opportunity! Just made one!

Flerken. @ Tue Jul 23, 2019 7:05 am

Well something seems to have happened with my java I guess. Oekaki isn't working for me.
I open the documents and it gives me the screen and then the drawing space goes black.

I have tried different browsers, un&re installing java and it still does it.
SO I am not going to be able to complete these. SOrry.

Here it is! It still needs some tweaks but I'll fix that eventually :)

v 1.1
- Got rid of the weird skinny bio box because it takes up space and who's going to write a paragraph with a trackpad anyway?
- Erased lots of 'blemishes' and out-of-the-lines stuff.
- moved my signature to a different place.
- cover added

v 1.2
- God rid of the top bio box.
- More blemishes erased.

Here's the rules:
- Provide a link back if taken offsite
- Do not remove my siggy
- You can make adoptables
- You can sell adopts for pets or C$
- Enjoy!

I currently have several tabby patterns and a colorpoint layer added, as well as a longhaired variety.
Do not ask for items to be added. This is meant as a warriors editable but your cat doesn't have to be a warrior.

Inspired by meveh's, the woods', and coalchaser's cat editables, and the rise warrior lines. <3

Canine/Feline Face Editable
by MezzaWolf2 @ Tue Jul 23, 2019 3:50 am [Reply]

Decided to make an editable that was not meant to be a joke. I couldn't label the layers, but each one is there for a reason. There are 2 eye options and I still need to fix the fur. If you have any ideas for what else I can add, let me know. :)


-You may use for characters and such, but you MUST credit me for the lines.
-You may use offsite, but just like the rule before, credit me for the lines
- May NOT color in for profit/adoptables
- I'll think of more rules later....

You may credit me for the lines using my TH account: https://toyhou.se/Mezzaluna

Pippins based on this drawing by Canis2954
by zave @ Wed Sep 19, 2018 12:09 am [Reply]

discord server

Pippins are tiny little creatures, about as big as apples. They are extremely dependent on their owners, so please treat them well! Most Pippins wear collars because they remind them of their owners and make them feel more secure.

feel free to do almost anything with them, as long as you dont change their size too much (no bigger than a 3-month old kitten, no smaller than a mouse) and don't change their basic traits (their noses, and paws). You can edit their ears, tails, fur, and hair as much as you would like.

you may make one pippin without marking the thread, but if you do mark, you may make as many as you would like.

you may not sell pippin adopts for any kind of currency. you may trade them, however.

there are currently no plans for a nursery or baby lineart.

pippins are an open species.

Ember's Horse Reference Sheet Lines
by EmberWolf @ Wed May 01, 2019 9:38 pm [Reply]

Ember's Horse Reference Sheet Lines

Please read the rules thoroughly before using!

-Do not remove my signature under any circumstance. There is absolutely no reason for you to accidentally remove it.
-Do not post these lines into the Adoptable Oekaki board. No adopt centers can be made on these lines.
-You MAY adopt out, trade, or sell designs on these lines, but they cannot be made into their own "species"
-You MAY edit these in any way you'd like.


These are my "ultimate" horse reference lines. With a body that comes in both mare and stallion, front profile, color swatches, and MANY options. Everything is neatly organized in folders for easy use. Make sure the tail folder is below the body folder, otherwise some of the tails will overlap the body in weird ways. The mane folder should stay above the body folder.

Here are just some examples of the many mane and tail combinations. The possibilities are endless!

I plan on adding more things over time. Here is some ideas of things I'd like to add, let me know if you have any other suggestions!
To add eventually wrote:-Tack options
-Fantasy options (wings, horn, etc)
-Feathering options

Please DO NOT:
~ Touch the signature whatsoever. Do not move, edit, change opacity, etc.
~ Resell the lines (i.e sell without any design)
~ Sell reference sheets (i.e coloring in premade/someone else's character and selling the sheet to them)
Feel free to:
~ Mark
~ Sell adoptables/designs
~ Gift or use as a reference sheet for characters
~ Edit lines
~ Take offsite, but link back to this thread or to my DA (birdio)
Please let me know if you have any questions, I can add the answer to the rules <3

How To Color

Lock Alpha, AKA Lock Transparency, allows you to color inside of what's already on the layer.

A small tutorial by me >:D

1. Select the layer you want to color. In this case, that's the "Color" layer, the gray part of the dog.
2. Select "Lock Transparency." This will allow you to stay inside of what's already colored.
3. Begin coloring!

Night-fire & Wolfy @ Thu May 23, 2019 2:39 pm

Am I allowed to mark? If so, HUGE MARK!

meveh's Ultimate Cat Editable 2.0
by meveh @ Fri May 11, 2018 10:25 pm [Reply]

I've been wanting to remake my old cat editable for quite a while now, so here we have this! Feel free to suggest ideas for more items, expressions, markings, etc!

Here is a list of all of the current available features (WIP):

>> Miscellaneous Items:
    - tail ribbon
    - ineffective rainhood (at least its cute)
    - very important rainboots
    - scarf
    - fishy bones
    - mousey toy
    - jewelry (gold, silver)
    - halo (white, gold)
    - ram horns
    - short horns
    - bat wings
    - feathered wings
    - bandana
    - collar (tag, bell)
    - bobtail
    - lowered tail (shorthair, longhair)
>> Long and Short Fur
>> Facial features:
    - whiskers
    - crooked whiskers
    - half-closed eyes
    - big smile
    - tongue out
    - scowl
    - sad/worried
    - tears (welling, streaming)
    - fangs
    - saber teeth
    - ear tufts
    - curled ears
    - round ears
    - folded ears
>> Markings:
    - pointed
    - tabby (spotted, mackerel, classic)

Unfortunately, most of the edits need to be colored in manually as they are not lock alpha'd. While this is somewhat inconvenient, it does free up processing space for oekaki which means I can add even more edits/items!


**please give me credit or link back if you post this off oekaki**

Use in competitions
Make SINGLE adoptables -- one at a time
Edit the lineart
Sell for CS currency only(pets/C$)
Use outside of CS as long as you link back
Make a cover if you are coloring in several of your own characters

Claim art as your own
Remove/alter my signature
Sell for offsite currency (dA points, USD, etc.)
Use this to create a new editable thread
Make mass adoptables (i.e. an adoptable thread)
