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 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:
http://www.chickensmoothie.com/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 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.

I did most of these yesterday

trash bandit and demise!izuku are from the fic "The Demise of Izuku Midoria"
the girl with a skull mask is fan art of Neytirix and their cool song "People of the Lock" and is also a redraw

The last one is also a song by Neytirix ("I have the most disgusting eyes") but w/ my charie Lucy,, who doesnt deserve most of what i throw at her but I just cant stop 🙃

      New style, maybe this'll become an oc?

Done for today! (3/20) ill be back tommorow but i havent got time to do another tonight :0 to elaborate u can still post forms tonight i just wont be able to do em till the mornin ugh i originally did this to wait for it to start raining in terraria but it never did...... WHY

wow im a a madman for opening this up again (feat less funny cover art than last time)

ok free art here are the rules:

Include a character reference please make it a legit ref rather than just a normal piece.... although as long as the design is well communicated and the image is large enough to swatch colors from i guess it dont matter.

colors. i might not color them (and i might color some but not all) but just in case please make sure ur ref has a clear way to swatch the colors. tiny images are no good; the colors are too small to get to (if u write color codes in ur reply thats cool too! maybe even better!)

NOT FIRST COME FIRST serve im doing these in the order i want so i might jump around annd skip people and the last 2 time s i did this i felt bad skipping people so i might not end up skipping people... or maybe ill grow thicker skin... i dont owe no one anything this is free

including a summary of a personality will make me be more likely to accept ur request! it makes it easier for me to pose the character. either that or requesting a pose to do :0

im best at felines but any animal is fine, i can try my best at any animal (anthro or feral). no humans though

I will PM you when/if I do your request unless YOU specify otherwise!

if ya got a toyhou.se ya may as well link the whole page :0 lookign through them is fun and cool and can help me if im being stupid!

ok guys go nuts!!!! im ready to try to draw y'all

shibeboi @ Wed Mar 20, 2019 3:51 pm

i'd love something of this dude if possible! No personality yet, sorry! ! He's a cat rabbit hybrid.

Ty for the chance!

☁Lady Raincloud☁ @ Wed Mar 20, 2019 3:57 pm

I'd like to request but I'd really like colored art- could I offer you wishlist pets if you are interested in drawing my ocs? I don't mind paying for coloring. c:

thank you soo much !! I'm so glad you like it!
And thank you that's super rediculously nice to say <33 I'm doing this piece in part to practice perspective and foreshortening, so i'm super glad you think it looks alright. I'm happy too, SMG is never really talked about anymore, but to me it's still super important and has so many amazing memories associated with it <3

i l o v e super mario galaxy! it's great to see there are others who still appreciate the game, and it's exciting to see art like this! it's beautiful and I'm excited to see what it looks like in the future when completed!
