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:

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.

Mels Cool Miracle
by x_DemonCoffee_x @ Wed May 23, 2018 6:17 am [Reply]

Rushed drawing, if I have time I will go back and correct many things. Anyways, this is Mels Cool Miracle, also known as Jeb. He is fourteen years old, 15.2 hands high, and is deaf in both ears. I got him four days ago and he is already fitting in quite nicely with my friends other geldings. Anyways, I do hope that you enjoy this drawing! It was done entirely with the touchpad thing (phew, does my finger hurt :lol: )

This is super good!! <3 I love the background so much and the details in the hair!

This is my entry for a tribe art contest
in which the theme was summer and I had to draw my Transformice character
My favorite things about summer are the warm nights, with full moon and stars,
the beautiful flowers,
and the cute fireflies! :3

Here is the image of my mouse

can't bring myself to finish this
by palindrome. @ Mon May 21, 2018 12:42 am [Reply]

lol im sitting here crying thinking about how my horse was taken from me and im never going to see him again
can't do any art today because i just have no way to stop myself from being so terribly heartbroken, i'm sorry if anyone has art ordered from me

i'm just drowning in the fact that the person who came and got him told me to my face 'maybe when things are different you can always have him back' and then threatened to take me to court when i brought up to her that i want him back in a while. i dont understand why they cant see that they have taken someone's first horse, and their whole life. wouldn't you want to give the person their happiness back? wouldnt that make you feel like a good person? like you've done the right thing morally?

just goes to show i should have tried harder to keep him hahaha

Inkiing @ Mon May 21, 2018 12:49 am

im so sorry palin!!

i have never owned a horse myself, but i think to myself about the mares i ride and so dearly love. I dont lease them, their owners board them at my instructors barn. I trust both of those mares with my life, My teacher is shutting down her barn in a few months, after i move of course, and I know the likely hood of me ever seeing those mares again is slim. but like i said i dont own those mares, and i can only imagine the pains of being in your spot.

my PM is open, and my Discord DM is too (@inkiing#5222) im here for you always

spiritfolk @ Mon May 21, 2018 1:02 pm

I'm so sorry for you and your horse! I know the terrible feeling of being separated from an animal I loved and it's horrible, the anxiety of not knowing if they're alright and just the terribleness of it all is not something I want myself or anyone to go through. I hope you get to be reunited with your horse very soon and that it will all work out in the end! ^^

Rock based on this drawing by endless shelter;;
by endless shelter;; @ Sat Nov 11, 2017 5:20 am [Reply]

So i saw this 3d cat headshot model and i used it for reference of the piece that i coloured in to make this.
Then i decided "Hey this looks cool how about I make Rock."

Also rocks because that's cool.
Feel bad for Rock. He sees the future and can't change anything.
He's also stuck in a cave.

this 3d model really helped getting the wrinkles in the right position, i had it up just to make sure it looked normal!

Grelifcent Fan-Art based on this drawing by KathrynKat
by KathrynKat @ Sun May 20, 2018 5:37 pm [Reply]

Currently working on adding each of my babies, as well as filling in the color a bit better for each.
After I've added all of my current Grelifcents, I'll be possibly opening this for requests for others to be colored in.
I may either do raffles for a free or some sort of give aways, otherwise, there will be a small fee which be as small a certain amount of Chickens & Deer. As these are very common and often released, it be a decently cheap fee, I say. (I hoard them, and have gotten them over the years as an easy payment other seem to not mind one bit)
I'll take requests anywhere from doing 1, to all you own to even coloring each lines as 1 Grelifcent!
I may even over time add more lines but that just all depends :)

There are currently 5 Lines & 10 different tail types in which could be used pretty much on all or most of the Grelifcent Lines. *WOOT*
