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.

It's not actually blood, it's just goopy stuff. Like in this picture too, it's just a goopy substance. = w = It isn't explicit or meant to be too bad, so I figured it would be safe to post.

Different based on this drawing by Enzona
by Enzona @ Mon Jun 18, 2018 10:49 am [Reply]

Time is just a man-made concept to foresee coming events, but it is not natural to mankind. It may bring good, but good also comes with bad, when man-made. That is reality now. But what is now? When you blink now, you blinked 1 second ago. 2 seconds. 3 seconds. We dwell in and stress so much about the past and the coming that we forget the current.

Timer is off
My English is kinda off, but so is my overall ability to communicate, sorry.

This is an old character who I can probably say is retired now.. but he had a great run. Near the end of the role-play he got engaged the woman of his life, Ashley Thompson. They have a little girl named Rebecca and have been through hell and back. This is a wolf embodied form of my old character Kenneth. He had a street gang and band named The Hellionz© and they were the wildest animals on the streets in their hometown. This piece is probably from 2015 but I finally finished it as a tribute to the old character who is now retired. He was my male persona for a long long time. He still lives on in my heart and truly he and his family are living happily ever after in the sweetest of senses.

Kenneth Alexander Nixxon© and Rebecca Kate©, his daughter.
Ashley Thompson belongs to Mudfur..

Any criticism :.3?

zaika @ Sun Jun 17, 2018 7:31 am

Looks wonderful, that shading and fur are on point!

However I think that stars of different sizes done without the scatter tool look best,
(Although the duplicate tool is always there c; )

And maybe add a few random strands/ patches of grass in different shades of green

howling-cs @ Sun Jun 17, 2018 12:54 pm

i love this! adding some colorful lighting always does the trick.
