    Entries for the competitions

For creating an oekaki contest :

You must provide at least one of the following which needs to be used in all entries:

  • A lineart (or part of a lineart for contestants to complete).
  • A proper background which features scenery and/or items (Colour-fills and gradients are not considered to be proper background).*

If you don't provide something for users to edit, your contest will be moved to the regular Art Contest board. You should post your contest in that board if you don't need users to color in something specific, or want to include art made in other programs.

You must also follow the other Oekaki Rules.

*If you have trouble coming up with a background for your lineart competition, feel free to use either of these pre-made background packs: pack 1 & pack 2 (regular canvas) & pack 3 (larger canvas).

For contests offering a prize/prizes to the winners:

Most people choose to enter a contest based on what kind of prize they have a chance to win. These rules are designed to protect players from being ripped off in contests which change or don't deliver the promised prizes.

  1. Don't offer any prizes that you'll regret losing. If you're not happy to give something away, it shouldn't be a prize.

  2. Your contest must offer a CS pet/item/currency prize. Contests that only offer prizes from other sites are not allowed, as CS staff cannot help/provide a prize if the contest is not judged by the host. You may not offer real money/USD as a contest prize if it is hosted on CS. (New rule as of August 23, 2020)

  3. Any prizes you offer must be awarded to winners at the end of the contest - even if you cancel or close the contest early. If the entries were disappointing or you didn't get many to pick from, advertise and bump more to try and get more entries before you close.

  4. You can't list any prizes that aren't definitely going to be given out. This means you can no longer list conditional prizes (e.g. grand prizes) which you'll only give out if you get a particularly good entry. Every prize listed must be awarded at the end of the contest if the entry conditions are met.

  5. You can't change your promised prizes, unless you are changing them to something of the same (or higher) value. Any changes made must be accepted by the prize winner or contestants involved.

  6. If the prize is a pet you must link to the pet's profile page. This is to ensure that you actually own the pet and that there is no misunderstanding about the prize. Linking to pet groups is not sufficient regardless of how many total pets are involved. (New rule as of January 23, 2015)

  7. You can't trade or auction pets that you're offering in a contest.

  8. Contests without an advertised end date must end within 3 months. The end date can be changed or extended, but if the contest has been open for a long time without any activity from contestants or the contest holder than it may be forced closed by staff.

  9. Contests in total may not run more than 1 year past the original creation date. This is the maximum amount of time a contest may run and they may not be extended any further. (New rule as of February 6, 2017)

CLOSED based on this drawing by Tealea
by LuciferFalling @ Sat Aug 22, 2020 11:01 pm [Reply]

This is my first time doing this, so here's hoping I get it right the first time round and don't have to edit half a million times x'D

So recently I've had a big OC clearout and I'm looking for some new OCs that I'm actually likely to use!

Please, when removing the wording, don't remove the tealea watermark! For this reason please don't use the 3rd pup base as I realised I'd gone slightly over the watermark with the writing
You also don't have to use these bases, they can be off-oekaki or off-oekaki, the base is given as a guideline if it's wanted ♡

Some things I like:
-Wings (the more the better)
-Leopard markings
-Big fluff
-Dark colours/natural colours
-Graceful designs

Some things I don't like:
-complete lack of markings (for example, an entirely brown coloured dog wouldn't appeal to me at all)
-Neon in most cases
-Dull colours (exception to this is natural palettes)
-Realistic dog designs- for example I'm unlikely to use just a regular dalmatian!
-Messy designs, I prefer where the design and colours flow well together and compliment each other!

Now onto the fun bit! Prizes!!

1st place will receive 100c$ + a rare/wishlist pet
2nd place will receive 50c$ + a rare/wishlist pet
3rd place will receive 30c$ + a rare/wishlist pet
4th place will receive 20c$ + a rare/wishlist pet
5th place will receive 10c$ + a rare/wishlist pet

All entries that I choose to keep will receive a rare/wishlist pet, however if you don't come in the top 3 and would prefer to keep your design instead of trading for the pet I offer you, you're completely welcome to do that! ♡

**Prizes may be added to as I get more c$, however prizes will not go down, they may go up.**

I think that's all? Thank you in advance to everyone who participates c:

THIS NOW ENDS AT THE END OF NOVEMBER (Due to a low amount of entries)

Code: Select all
Past Experience:
Why do you want this position?:

I am looking for some designs to add to a new herd I'm forming out of some old designs/ocs, so I thought I'd hold a comp to try to get some other horse designs to add to it!

I will pay 3 C$ for solid/plainer horses (i.e a plain bay, or a black horse with socks and a star, or horses with rabicano or very minimal white markings like a few birdcatcher spots)

I will pay 5 C$ for white patterned horses (Overo, paint, appaloosa, pintaloosa, sabino, etc.) or chimera

You can enter as many times as you want but no covers please!
I may buy multiple designs from the same player if they catch my eye
I'll go through and pick designs I like as they are posted or in groups (Depends how many entries there are)
Natural designs only please! (If you know genetics and would like to add a genotype with your entry feel free!)
Any designs I don't buy are yours to keep/sell or do with what you wish.

If I like your design I will post on it to let you know and if you are willing to sell it I'll send the trade! Please don't forget to add me to the lines of the entry!

When coloring this in feel free to edit the lines/mane/tail if desired

And please let me know if you would like credit for the design on someplace other than CS like DA or TH!

Things I like:
Badger Face
Silver/Gray horses
Seal Brown
Blue Taffy/Silver Seal Brown
Paint Markings
Blanket & Extended Blanket Appaloosa
Appaloosa in general really lol

I'm not too picky though! A lot of different things can catch my eye.

Draw aqua anthro!
by _Kami_ @ Wed Nov 04, 2020 4:51 am [Reply]

Hey y’all!

I am already planning to start my Halloween costume for next year! It’ll be a huge project, and I want to be aqua!

She’s my oldest and dearest character, who’s been comforting me for as long as I can remember! In order to make her, I need a humanoid ref of her for convenience! I am willing to pay at least 25C$ for a complete ref! I would like a front, back, and side view, plus full with color! I’m hoping to make parts of her glow, too, so a lot up ref would be great as well! I’d also like a mask ref, and a maskless ref! If you enter for this, I’d be eternally greatful! Every complete entry will get a prize, so don’t worry about that! There isn’t an end date for this, just till I find an entry that I feel as though I can use best for an accurate reference! This is MY character, so you can’t use your complete refs if you don’t win. Sorry. I will be buying all of these with WL pets of yours, or something else. Please link your toy house so I may credit it.

She’s a western dragon, and no, I am Paying for a commission, not a custom. But oekaki is the program I prefer. Off oekaki entries are fine as well.

First of all, what i'm basically looking for is a european dragon type species; with a stockier type build for males and a slimmer build for females. I would like a minimum of 4 lines (hatchling, baby, adult and elder) but you could add an egg layer if you wanted too : D

End date: 7th December
Possible time extension votes open on last page

. All entries must not be made into another species to avoid strong similarities between the two
. I would like to be added to the lines just so i can see all the different lines included
. All entries must be finished to be considered for winning, no WIP pieces will be considered
. All entries should be high quality
. Please feel free to include your signature on the design!
. The winning lines will be mine when payment sent
. Please be polite to everyone entering
. I may add more rules as this progresses but will DM any who enter notifying of these new rules!
. Nothing that goes against CS guidelines should be included
. I may offer to buy other lines if i really like them
. This is a no pressure zone!
. I can give give little hints to all contestants if asked for them!

What i'd like to see:
. Stockier male dragon, slimmer female dragon
. Elder lines being extravagant (more fur, spines, large wings, pronounced muscles, ect/ things like that!)
. Organised layers
. More of a realistic style instead of a chibi/ cartoony style *Note that i'm not necessarily looking for realism, just not the chunkier chibi style :) *
. Extra tufts of hair on the elbows/ manes on the male dragons (optional)
*I may add more to this too!*

Prizes: 300c$ + 1-5 WL rare pets depending on dates
I may purchase others for 300c$ too!

What i need to see:
.In these peices i need to see 4 sets of lines as a minimum
.Any of the backgrounds on the post but don't delete please!
.Must have some kind of optional hair on all of the dragon builds, (male/female/elder)
. I must be added to the finished peice so i can inspect tbe lines
. I need to see good quality lines
. Some element of my preferred style in all designs

Hello there, welcome to my contest! I've been collecting some C$ over the Halloween Season so step right up for some prizes!

This contest has 2 rounds: A character art contest and a backstory contest.

The character art contest includes designing my character for me. I've got the base down but I need some more info, and there's already colors down.

The backstory contest includes creating a backstory. I have a few ideas for writing prompts but I do need some help with a proper backstory. Please try to write at least 50 words! :)

Both rounds will be ongoing at the same time. Here's how to enter and the prizes!

In order to enter for the Backstory Contest, simply claim a spot by posting here. Go ahead and post a WIP if you need to as well!
In order to enter for the Art Contest, simply give me a design I could use and edit the picture to art it up- skill does not matter!
You will be credited for your work!

(If any of the slots aren't taken by the time this ends, the prize will just be disbanded.)
Art contest:
1st 35 C$
2nd 20 C$
3rd 10 C$

Backstory contest:
1st 30 C$
2nd 20 C$
3rd 10 C$

The contest will end around December, not sure but i'll try to end it before Christmas. Once it's ended i'll give each of the backstories and designs a rank out of ten, some things I liked and some things I would change.

More info about the contests will be on a seperate post down below!

Art Contest
Just some information of what I have so far for the character, they're a feline anthro. The shirt is supposed to be a wool sweater that's a bit too long, and has the sleeves tucked in. Also, they're supposed to be a cream solid-color with a small amount of white on their jaw and one of their toes- i'm not sure which.

Backstory Contest

My generic theory is that anthros in my universe were created as genetic experiments, and released due to failure. I'm not sure how far deep i'll get into this, but it's a little prompt if you need it. They're also supposed to be female, with a normalish personality and a calm demeanor, who loves helping others.

floc - singular ⟡ flox - plural ⟡
«the flox are a species of psychic, floating foxes whose powers have been sealed away since ancient times.
unlocking flox with magic keys releases a burst of light or dark aura based on the floc's nature.
by adopting a floc, you agree to assist in the mission to uncover the mysteries of their past.
are you up to the challenge?

⟡ species created and owned by akami-chan and managed by alliureendorsement
    interested in becoming an artist for fox-n-key? or... maybe earning some tokens?
    well, this is your chance !! c:
    here, you can design //very exciting// floc backgrounds to either try out for a guest artist position, earn tokens, or both !!

    but wait––what are tokens?
    tokens Image are the official currency we use here in the floc realm.
    they may be used to buy items from the shop in the near future !

    listed below are the rules and guidelines for this search.
    please make sure to read and understand them thoroughly before entering.

    ⟡ you are to post a fully designed rectangle with a transparent background and the key with your design clipped to it.
    ⟡ there are detailed instructions under the cover, please read and follow them carefully.
    ⟡ entries that fail to follow these guidelines will be ignored.

    here is a helpful guide to see where the design will go on the animated floc. try not to crowd corners.

    ⟡ feel free to create as many entries as you like––this is an ongoing search until stated otherwise.
    ⟡ do not post entries under a cover.
    ⟡ it is preferred that you link all previous entries.

    off-oekaki entries are accepted, but only tokens may be earned from these designs.
    you will not be considered for a guest artist position. the psd can be found here.
    ⟡ once you have created a design, submit it by replying to this thread with the full transparent image of the pattern field.
    you are welcome to post as many entries as you would like. do not add new designs to old posts. they will likely be missed.

    ⟡ if we like what we see, one (or both) of these situations can happen:
    1) your design will be made into a floc !
    2) you will be invited to be a guest artist !

    1) if your design is made into a floc, you will be notified and rewarded with 15 tokens.
    1) if your entry was off-oekaki, it will be made into an official floc that will be given out in a game stream.

    2) if you are invited to be a guest artist, you are allowed to make up to five official adopts within a one month period––and earn an unedited custom floc that does not count towards your eight-floc limit.**

    ⟡ even though this is an artist search, you are welcome to post designs solely for the purpose of trying to earn tokens. you are not required to enter with the intention of being hired as a guest artist. if you are not interested in being hired, please state so. in this case, including the key is optional.

    guest artist guidelines
    ⟡ joining/being in the discord is highly preferred but not required.
    ⟡ you must create at least two new (not entries converted to adopts) designs before creating your custom.
    ⟡ you are free to turn one of your entries into your custom.
    ⟡ if you wish to turn an entry (that wasn't already made) into an official adopt, you are free to do so.
    ⟡ ⟡ however, of your monthly five, a maximum of two may be created this way.
    ⟡ ⟡ this is also discouraged, as the purpose of being a guest artist is to demonstrate (with more designs) what youre capable of !
    ⟡ after you have finished your trial, you will be released back into the wild and are free to try again !

    ⟡ by making an entry and posting it under/replying to this oekaki, you agree and understand that your design may be made into an official floc. if you do not want your design to be used, do not post it.

    ⟡ do not inquire about official artist positions.
    ⟡ if i am interested in your work, you will be invited via pm !!

    ...whew *o* that was a lot.
    thank you for reading and happy designing !
    if you have any further questions, feel free to post below or contact me privately.

    please note that users may only ever earn one such artist custom. other customs may be earned if hired as an official artist, but they will count towards your limit. this means that if you were hired as a guest artist before, created a custom, and are hired again, you do not get another. these customs are strictly limited to one per person, no matter how many times you are hired.

Camouflaged Leafeon @ Sat Oct 24, 2020 1:58 am

Um.. when i opened oekaki to make an entry, i realized that there is no clipping button to clip layers together.. Or is it just the version of oekaki im using, which is ChickenPaint, doesnt have clipping masks?

end date;; CLOSED

i'm deciding that now that i have a bunch of c$ again, i'm gonna open another character contest. i've hosted one before that went quite well- so hopefully this one goes even better with slightly higher stakes.

my last contest had a prize of 1.1k c$ + some rares/very rares as prizes, and now we've raised that by 400 c$ in hopes of even more interest--

that being said, there's rules/regulations, as well as specific things you might want to follow for your chance to win.

if there's a character that doesn't win, but i really like the character, i may pm you afterwards to inquire about buying it!

-- for this contest, the character must be a *male human/humanoid*. despite being human/humanoid, they can have multiple forms, if you wish --

this character must;;
- be male
- be human/humanoid (multiple forms such as "wolf form + human form" allowed)
- be made on this thread-- you are not allowed to use "character generators" or "dress up games", and this must also be a character made specifically for this contest. you cannot just go to a random folder on your toyhouse etc and pull one out and say it's your contest entry. characters drawn off oekaki are acceptable, you just have to doodle something from this thread with a cover and put it in the post.
- be original. you have to make your own design, you can't just rip off of someone else's entry, someone else's character, or even mine/my designs. it must be original.
- drawn in a fullbody perspective/reference.

things i personally like;;

** heavily desired / liked

- messy hair
- tattoos **
- scars **
- two forms **
- a tail or a long tail with tuft of fur on end (not all have to have the fur -- i also like *long* tails)
- werewolves / demons / vampires / incubus **
- masks **
- vitiligo
- horns (sometimes)

things i personally dislike;;
(please try to stay away from these!! not just for my own preference, but for your own chances to win)

- wings
- super furry tails
- random colorbomb designs- i like things that are pleasant to look at.
- long hair
- scales
- anthro / feral designs
- bright/vibrant/overly messy/eyestrain designs

food for thought;; (feel free to use these for your design or simply use them as inspiration!)

- the design you enter in this contest must be of your own work and no one else's. it must be done by you and you may not copy other entries or simply other art for that matter.
- i can cancel this without choosing a winner (not taking a character) if i don't find the time, motivation, or like of any entries. if this happens (it most likely will not), consolation "prizes" will be handed out.
- if i pick your character and you win, i then own the design and you will receive your prize - upon me owning the character, they are then mine to do what i want with.
- you may sell / keep designs that don't win.
- if i ever grow tired of these characters that win, i will be allowed to resell / trade them off for similar pricings (or more, depending on art + extras).
- cs rules apply

if you don't follow these rules you'll be disqualified from the contest + reported to mods depending on what rule you broke (ie stealing art/characters)


- you may pretty up your entry if you wish, ie custom moodboards, slight backstories, extra coding, etc.
