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.

oc for Kirisuna
by Jorleesi @ Wed Jun 26, 2019 6:06 am [Reply]

*my messy art style kicks in*
oups

OC for Kirisunas competition.
Gave her a weapon 'cause she looks like she could handle one.
I rly hope the infinity tattoo postion counts (I know its not 100% seeable but I thought its a pretty cool spot)

main inspiration

Kirisuna @ Wed Jun 26, 2019 5:16 pm

LOVE this!
I will absolutely count the infinity tattoo and if I decide to keep her she's just going to have to wear crop tops and shirts to show it off since, lets be honest, that is a pretty cool spot.

I also love how you added the watch as a necklace and the back tattoo.

i'm the king, and who are you?

    happy birthday to this angel! i started reading homestuck in 2012, that's 7 of his birthdays i've celebrated!
    homestuck literally made me the person i am today. the fandom was a mess but they were lovable and it was amazing being a part of something so huge. i want to thank john egbert for being him and andrew hussie for such an absolutely sensational comic! i loved every last bit of this journey!

    happy birthday john egbert!

    iron dog! this is a long overdue continuation of my marvel animals series...thing (sorry I literally meant to post these months ago, I have a bunch more). tony reminded me most of a mudi dog because of the wavy dark hair they both have, so I decided he'd be one.

    I guess here's mr. bark enjoying a burger in his mark 4 iron dog suit (I tried asjsjjs)! comments & feedback are always appreciated! thank you all so much.

    thor natasha pietro + several more if you follow the link to amino (through 'natasha')!

Skiller @ Tue Jun 25, 2019 2:42 am

This is really cute! Looks a lot like my former dog, he was a mostly black border collie.
Only thing is, it would look better if the burger was a bit fluffier.

I love this series it's so cute!
