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 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 had a drawing in my sketchbook of a wolf with leaves swirling around them
I finally got around to bringing the idea to life
I've been trying to focus not so much on the details,
but the values
so it's a little blurrier and sketchy than i'm used to
But i think it came out well :3

Love this!
It's so nice to look at!
I can't wait to see more from you in the future!
Keep up the amazing work!! ♥

A smol little vent ik its only been 2 months since I last did one but ya know its been kinda rough :">>
The band season just ended and I'm missing some of the people that are in it since I cant really see them

comfort
by Troye @ Mon Nov 26, 2018 4:18 am [Reply]

      I had no idea what to name this one.

      I am beyond excited about the fact that this doesn't look warped or desaturated on my phone. I'm freaking ecstatic. This is the most satisfied I've ever been with a drawing ♡♡♡

      I don't have much to say this time around, but I'll say this; I think making art is like using a printer, because every time I approach a drawing with fear, things don't go well. I tried to jump on in with this one and I am super excited about how it came out ♡

      Inspiration / Reference was from @desiandlucythecats on Instagram ♡

happy and kind gorl that is not evil in any way. Really courageous and speaks her mind about things all the time, peppy and likes to cuddle a lot tbh. Waters her plants every morning and gives them all names she writes on their pot in sharpie. Talks to them when she's bored. Her favorite is Comet the tiny cactus.

heckk so this is my first time trying out drawing in the Oekaki forums-
Apart from drawing small in the middle of the canvas (like I always seem to do :') ) I think it turned out okay. I'll definitely post more here!
The character is my sona Sascha.

tinytyn @ Tue Dec 11, 2018 6:54 pm

hey, this is really cool! i like the coloring, but i think the back ear could be a little bigger.

Mors est votis @ Tue Dec 11, 2018 7:12 pm

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Reminds me of River’s art style on yt

Breezeyheart @ Tue Dec 11, 2018 7:32 pm

I think that your art style is both adorable and very gorgeous! ♡ I really love the expression upon Sascha's face. I do believe since the left(or smaller ear), since it is probably suppse to be less in our field of vision then the closer up, larger and more visible ear on the right. It should be slightly smaller then the other ear if that makes sense.
