Official Oekaki Challenge

A new challenge has begun!

Oekaki Weekly Challenge
Welcome to the Official Oekaki Challenge board!
We set a challenge and it's up to you to draw your response! This is just for fun. All skill levels are welcome here, from beginners to advanced (and beyond!) :)

Haven't heard of the Oekaki Challenge board? That's because it's been in deep sleep since its last challenge in 2015. :shock: The challenge board gets its energy from oekaki art, so please join the challenges to keep it in good health!

Challenge #70: 'Tis the Season! Do you celebrate something special at this time of year? Draw you or your fursona/OC enjoying the holiday season.
Hot tip: Cuttler the Guard Art Critic is looking for CS-themed holiday art to feature on his pin board this month! If you include some CS pets or items in your drawing, you just might impress him :)

This Challenge will run until December 14th!
Time remaining in this challenge: one day

Weekly Challenge Theme Suggestions
by Tess @ Sun May 18, 2014 10:53 pm Attachment(s) [Reply]

Do you have an awesome theme idea for the Official Weekly Challenge?

Submit your ideas here, and we just might use them!

It's hard to keep coming up with new themes every week, but we know our members have great ideas! :)

A good challenge is something that will be popular with a lot of different people, so everyone will want to join in. Avoid themes which have too small of an audience (like a particular movie/tv show). We want to push people to draw something they don't usually draw, so try to 'think outside the box'!


Please note:
Since different members might end up suggesting the same ideas, we will not be able to credit the author of each idea. So please only share your idea if you're happy to see it used without credit to you.

Glossary of words we often use in challenges:

OC/Original Character - an original/unique design for a human or animal (or imaginary species) that you came up with yourself, or which someone else drew for you to use.

fursona - an animal character that you use to represent yourself. It might look kind of like you, or it might look like your personality turned into physical features (e.g. if you're an energetic person your fursona might be brightly colored)

persona - a human character that you use to represent yourself. It might look kind of like you in real life, or it might look like the kind of person you feel like on the inside - will it be dark and gloomy, or bright and bubbly? That's up to you!

Note: If the challenge asks you to use a fursona/persona/OC and you don't have one, you can use a CS pet instead!

As well as the theme, reminds me of my old childhood days where i'd cuddle under blankets with our border collie on christmas eve in front of the fireplace. it was a very happy time, and i wanted to try and recreate that feeling ♥

happy holidays everyone!!

Christmas Decorating Mishap
by kolyakun @ Wed Dec 12, 2018 2:28 pm [Reply]

Kolya (right) and Kenya (left) were decorating the tree but got wrapped up instead.
The two of them probably stayed like that for awhile..

I don't normally draw anything festive but I felt inspired today <3

Armurie @ Wed Dec 12, 2018 2:37 pm

I love it!

Egypt in A Snowstorm
by seaweedfinder @ Wed Dec 12, 2018 4:14 pm [Reply]

This is one of my OCs, Egypt. She decided to play in the snow. I hope you like it!

The original character base was one I had permission to use from Amino, but I am pretty sure their account got deleted. If anyone finds it, I will be sure to put that user in my credit. If not, I will assume because I already got consent, trying to credit a user that might not exist is not needed.
I did not trace this Mochi Raptor, but lines are the same.

First Snow
by Lostfairy @ Mon Dec 03, 2018 2:36 pm [Reply]

Ahhhh, this drawing turned out so much better then I thought it would? Like, gosh, I'm actually so proud and happy with this! ^-^

Zuna is enjoying her first snow! She's never ever seen snow before because it doesn't snow where she lives. Seeing snow for the first time is such an amazing experience, I wish I could remember when I first saw it. Snow is just so PRETTY! <3 I think Zuna enjoys it because its so gorgeous and because its fun, just like her. ^.^

This is my first time drawing a Christmas Zuna picture and I want to do SO MANY MORE this month, oh my goodness! (I might possibly want to draw Ghirahim enjoying the snow as well, probably laughing at Zuna for marveling over it. Or maybe he's marveling at her... c:

Anyway, this was drawn with a mouse, timer is off because I got distracted a lot, and please do not steal or repost! Also, Zuna is my character, please do not steal her! <3

Hehe, the title is also for EXO's song "First Snow." I'm listening to it, okay?! XD

Swirlshine @ Mon Dec 03, 2018 2:40 pm

OH MY GOODNESSSSSSSS
LOSTTTTTT
JUST AHHHHHHH. XDD

This looks SO FLIPPIN AWESOME! The detail you added really shows, like that fallen snow on her, and all the shading! And that background looks SO GOOD with the whole thing! AWESOME JOB MISSYYYYY, XD!

Also... hehe, that means I can relate to Zuna on the whole snow thing c;

AHHH, THANK YOU SO SO MUCH, SWIRL!!! <3

Aww, really? That means so much, seriously! <3

Aw, that's awesome! I'm sure Zuna would get along with you very well! <3

Chloe Grace @ Mon Dec 03, 2018 2:57 pm

SIS SIS SISSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

THIS IS INCREDIBLY INCREDIBLE!!!! IM NOT JOKING. I love everything about it, from the pretty dark snowy background to the dusting of snow on her hair and clothes to the cute bow to the beautiful sweater to the shading to her marvellous eyes. Ahhhhh. I can’t even. It’s just too amazing. Seriously.

This deserves infinite likes, btw.

And please please please draw more Zuna and Ghira Christmas art!!!!!!!! <333333

I LOVE THE TITLE FOR THE DRAWING. XD

"I-I'm Not Opening Presents!"
by SputnikSplash @ Wed Dec 12, 2018 6:42 am [Reply]

Looks like Sputnik got a little impatient and started opening presents before Christmas day. :lol:
Can you point out all of the C.S. items I put in here? There's 13 of them and they're everywhere.
I'm not proud of this my lines are messy in some places and it's driving me nuts. Ugh.

Snowlondon @ Fri Dec 07, 2018 6:34 am

Ah yes, the infamous dreidel game. I am known as the dragon, because whenever we play I always hoard my gelt. XD

I love the detailed chanukiah, and the fact that you can see the letters on the dreidel. The guy spinning's face perfectly represents how it feels waiting to see what you get, lol.

Chag sameach!

Fuzzy Socks
by Silver Pandorica @ Sun Dec 09, 2018 12:22 pm [Reply]

I drew my fursona, Inspire, for the oekaki challenge! I rarely draw on oekaki, unless I'm making adoptables, so this was an interesting experience. Does anyone have any tips on how to get smooth, clean lines? Or just any oekaki tips and tidbits in general c: (I already turn the smoothness up and set the opacity to its max)

I would also love critique/feedback on my art if you’re willing! You can bash it as much as you want, I won’t get offended, haha. I want to improve, so be harsh.

Time with family
by KogasBabyGirl @ Fri Dec 07, 2018 9:08 am [Reply]

This year is actually rough after having a large fight with my mother I have parted ways with her. The rest of my family is scattered thru the southern US. So This year its time with My BFs family and our Son. (Who loves kitties hint the kitty) My sister is even moving in with our father (in a different state over 10 hours away) so I won't even see her for christmas unless it's over video chat. 2019 is looking to be a really rough year for me as a extrovert. I'm just glad to have my son. He Loves his mama (and his stuffed kitties) so much.


On the bright side it is my sons second Christmas he picked out the star this year.

Below @ Sun Dec 09, 2018 10:57 pm

So sweet, I'm sorry to hear your family isn't going to be able to be together for the holidays but I hope you, your son and BF's family is able to have a great time!
Much love xx

Pleasure and Sorrow are back with this Christmas! I meant my characters, not the actual emotions. For a few days, I have been playing with Sorrow's design. I have given him a string of hair in this and he looks so silly, TBH.
