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!) :)

Challenge #82: Let's make some biographical artwork! Draw the outline of a creature or person which represents you. Inside the outline, put your interests, hobbies, thoughts & feelings. This can be text or icons, whatever best represents the things important to you.

Don't forget our rules about keeping things appropriate for all ages :)

This Challenge will run until June 30th!
Time remaining in this challenge: 14 days

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!

by CaffeinatedUniverse @ Sat Jun 15, 2019 2:32 pm [Reply]

(it's not just a boulder...
it's a rock!)

Dying noises

I made myself...
but since I was bored
I decided to make myself a rock! Why?? I dunno.


Explanation time!:

- Food, I like food....a lot.
- Those strange color splashes My hair is brown, and I'm really pale. And I have some freckles
- What looks like a tear, Is a tear, shows me that I cry...a lot. Literally no reason for it, I just cry
- Cracks? I have some funny scars and stuff...and stuff
- Ow! I get hurt a lot! (No, really, more than a person should!)
- ♂? Yeah! I'm often mistaken as a male...
- ♀. I'm a girl!
- Music notes, I love music! (It's purple cuz my hair is kinda purple?)
- Those green dots? Well, at first they were "…" and I decided to color them the color of my hair right now! Lot's of greens and blues with some purple
- Chat bubble? Well, I talk...a lot. (it's a problem actually)
-Uh! (It's in the food!) I say "Uh" a bunch!
-Greyish splash! My eyes are kinda blue/grey? When I was little they were really vibrant looks like...toilet water?
-All the grass and clouds and rain stuff - My favorite weather! When the sky is all grey, as it starts to rain, and everything is green, but that's rare...since I literally live in a desert.


Too many details!
by Ɽotten Ⱡegacy @ Fri Jun 07, 2019 3:33 pm [Reply]

eugghhhh I think I'm finally done with this
At the very least, even if I'm not, I really need to stop adding new things
I put wayyy too much time into this :')
I'll be seriously impressed if anyone manages to successfully identify everything here!
I'm genuinely amused by how much effort I put into the stack of books on one of the legs. But hey, from a distance, I think I did a pretty good job! I think I could identify the one on top.
Disclaimer: Starset and Linkin Park are the only bands I added the logo of, but that's just because they were the only ones I could remember off the top of my head. There are other bands and singers that I like a lot more, though they both are great! (Those logos are both on the belly, immediately to the right of my hoodie.)

I want to see if anyone can identify these two groups!
- The stack of five books on the left hind leg that I put way too much effort into
- The seven icons on the back, outlined with a slightly darker color

I'll identify most of the items here for your convenience, starting from the head and going down.

The book on the face is "What Star?", a book I got for Christmas back in 2016. It's the book I use to identify constellations, and it's been a huge help in my (few and far between) stargazing excursions ^^ The constellation on the face is Cassiopeia, my favorite constellation.

The scar on the lip is something I have in real life. I vividly remember how I got it, even though I was very young at the time--a few of the cats in my house were fighting, and one of them jumped across me trying to get away.

The black-and-red icon at the top of the neck is Bandicam. It's the main recording program I use even though I hardly record things, and even though it makes my computer run terribly. If it wasn't obvious, I do have a Blue Yeti microphone--and I drew it right below the Bandicam icon. I added two music notes near it to represent my love for music.

The items below and to the left of the music notes are miscellaneous food things, because as a Taurus (I FORGOT THE TAURUS SYMBOL--) I of course love food. There's a thing of Tic Tacs, a few colorful spots that are supposed to be Fruit Smiles but could really be anything, and something that looks vaguely like a slice of cookies n' cream cheesecake. Below the food, on the right foreleg, is the Taurus constellation and a scar that I have on my arm. I don't actually know how the scar got there, though I remember all the other events of the day I got it pretty well.

To the right of the snacks is my hoodie, a dark blue Owl City hoodie that I got in late September of last year. I take it everywhere, and I used to wear it everywhere, too. It's not that I'm attached to the hoodie, I just don't like feeling exposed. Right below the hoodie is my flashlight, which I typically carry in my pocket. Below the flashlight is my MP3 player.

To the right of the band logos (Starset and Linkin Park--see above disclaimer) is my laptop bag, keeper of all my most valuable possessions. Or at least, all the things it can fit. The red-and-white thing on the front of it is the best version of my Hornet pin that I could make at such a microscopic scale. I'm just so happy to have that pin...

The four icons below my laptop bag should be easy enough to identify, save for the bottom one. The bottom one (yellow smiley) is Everybody Edits, a game I've been a member of for nearly nine years. The constellation directly below is Canis Major, which contains Sirius, the brightest star in the sky.

It shouldn't be challenging to tell what the three skinny objects to the northeast of my laptop bag are, but I'll tell you what they are anyway. Top is a mechanical pencil, middle is a ballpoint pen, and bottom is a whiteboard marker, since I love (and use!) my whiteboard so much. The blue item below these drawing utensils is the blue container I keep all of my little papers in--the papers I leave everywhere I go, with signed drawings and well wishes on them.

The puzzle piece next to the books. It's a puzzle piece. Meant to represent my mild addiction to doing jigsaw puzzles :')
The fox and blue jay further down are two stuffed animals that I own. The fox was given to me as a birthday present, and I found the blue jay at a flea market a while back. I love them both!

Now, for the tail. The constellation at the base is Lyra, the black box in the middle is a Cards Against Humanity box, the cards further down should be self-explanatory--just some playing cards. The triangle is one of those jumping peg games, since I own one (although the colors aren't accurate), and the icon at the very tip is Minecraft.

Phew! That's all of 'em. There are a few that I intentionally didn't identify, though! I mentioned those further up.
The background is a bit messy, but that's because I intended to blur everything together. Then I tried to do that, and it was a disaster, so I decided to make it lighter instead. It's supposed to be slices of backgrounds from my favorite games. First is something from the opening cutscene of Hollow Knight (those are lamps, not glowing eyes), the Super Gravitron from VVVVVV, the Sync area from FEZ, the first level of the Cotton Alley from Super Meat Boy, and (just a sliver!) the level Blustery Day from World of Goo.

Things that I wanted to add but forgot: An icon for DeviantArt, the Taurus symbol, maybe a few other constellations

*insert obligatory apology for making such a long post, and obligatory appreciation to anyone who bothered to read all of it*

Shoe. @ Fri Jun 07, 2019 3:50 pm

Hollow Knight!!!

I was literally shaking while making this... I think it's pretty self-explanatory, but feel free to ask about anything.

Also kind of another vent ;-;

Timer is off! It took a few hours.

SablePossum @ Sun Jun 09, 2019 3:54 am

you seem like you have a lot of stories to tell :) I'd love to hear them ♡

J-and-K341 @ Sun Jun 09, 2019 4:03 am

Aw sorry about all of the stuff that you may be going through. You are welcome to PM me about anything any time you would like. This is a really well done art piece though i have to say. <3

Okay okay, hear me out just this once. This is probably one of the worst things I've ever made you see but I broke my stylis so I had to draw this with my finger. MY FINGER GUYS. Imma try to explain this how it is now but when I track down this illusive laptop stylis I will come back and redo this... probably...

Okay let's start from the top..? I guess..?

Outline, a dog - The only thing I can draw, let's be real lol
The expression - I'm a very socially awkward/anxious person so a lot of nervous laughter and palm-sweating
The female sign - Guess
The music note - I love music so much and I also used to play the trombone(so cool, right guys?)
The YouTube logo/SuperMega - I'm on youtube all the time, and I boiled it down to loving the feeling of being apart of a community like me. Big shocker, but I'm bad at connecting with people irl so it's so nice being apart of an online one. As for SuperMega, I love those two guys I practically feel with my own kind in that community. They have to be my absolute favorite channel and as clique as it sounds, I practically love them like family and they've helped keep me sane. I feel so dumb just writing that but it be like that sometimes lol
The Ace of Spades - I love cards fvgbjh
The laptop - Loooooots of internet time, I also draw using mine.
The "Bracelets" - They look like scribbles but they're supposed to be my bracelets and my watch that I never go anywhere without. I started wearing an ankle bracelet but I forgot to add it oops
The book - Practically addicted to reading. Nothing is better than good storytelling and a happy ending to keep your own life from looking bleak. If Ruby can end up as some semblance of happy after the rain-pocalypse, maybe I can end up happy too. (H20, read it)
Glasses - I'm heckin' blind man
"Haha" - I love to laugh, i just love it. Comedy has to be my favorite thing this world has to offer. I love laughing, it makes me feel good. (Kindergarten level sentence, you're welcome)
The poorly-drawn Dino - I love dinosaurs and reptiles and I have been entertaining the idea of getting a tattoo of one.
Illness puppy - I got CRAZY allergies. Every tree and mold in existence has me dead
The leaf - Despite the allergies, Autumn has to be my favorite season. Prefer hoodie temp, HALLOWEEN YES, the pretty colors. Perfect.
Hoodie Queen (tm) - I love hoodies and wear them all the time, there's nothing better to hide your insecurities.
"Boi" - I'm probably having S E V E R A L mental health issues but ehhh what can you do

That's it. I forgot to add a few things like how much a talk to friends, my introvert-ness-ness, my love for juice, and probably some other stuff I forgot. Feel free to ask about any of these~

Pitbull Girl
by Mewwthesabertiger @ Tue Jun 11, 2019 7:52 am [Reply]

Gotta edit this soon later but ok...

1) Animal
I chose a merle pitbull. Because pitbulls are so misunderstood and underrated, and they are more gorgeous than the "ZOMG EPIC WULFS!!!!!!!!!!" or "KEWL CATS". Why merle? because they are so unique QwQ
Also, pitbulls have this personality to explain myself. I am personally NOT a nice person, but i can open up. Sometimes.
2) The Symbolism!
Well, this list is complicated.
1. Flags
I am russian, but i'm currently residuing in Portugal. And this is wonderful :)
2. Anarchy symbol
I am a slight anarchist.
3. Linkin Park sign
I love Linkin Park. Their music makes me feel good.
4. Bronze Heart
MY HEART IS UNBREAKABLE, and it doesn't feel anything. About that bandage? I once felt, bad idea. maybe i will feel anything, or feeling now, but this is sure complicatedddd
But i'm sure, it's bronze. Why? I am a sore loser and i always come third, and also i like bronze.
5. Scars on belly
I survived many bullying years, and i suffer now, but i told you, i can't break down anymore. I wasted all my feelings so i almost don't feel anything.
6. Pencil with knife
I am interested in knifes and drawing.
7. guitar and bike
I love riding bikes and playing guitar!
8. Dark spots on eyes
I rarely sleep.
9. Freedom thought
I always think about freedom, and i always dream.

All other signs explain themselves.

My Entry
by XC-Equestrian @ Tue Jun 11, 2019 3:41 am [Reply]

For the horse, I feel like I relate most to horses because I'm not as social as dolphins or dogs, but I'm not like cats, either.
I picked an Arabian horse because they are my favorite breed and I ride one at my lessons.
So for the stuff: (top to bottom)
The rainbow is because I love rainbows, but it can also be for pride or autism awareness or something
Below it, I attempted to draw a baseball
Flash (the series)
Besides, Imaginary friends are a big part of my life and help me a lot.
a Pencil for drawing,
An english saddle for horseback riding, I prefer english over western
Horseshoe because I'm obsessed with horses
Basketball because
Imaginary horses are also a big part of my life right now (please don't look down on me)
a paintbrush bc I love to paint
Another horseshoe
Western horseback riding saddle, still prefer english
Steven Universe (SU)
Harley Quinn, below it
Besides, Batman logo, I love Batman
Above that, I attempted to draw a soccer ball, I'm bad at soccer balls.
And water, I love water and drinking water.
I forgot the bow and arrow, as I love archery
And the spear and the sword
And Spiderman and Deadpool, may add the stuff later
Please don't look down on me or make fun of me for liking these things
Thank you for reading. :thumbup:

A little bit of me
by .Cookiecakes. @ Mon Jun 10, 2019 2:18 pm [Reply]

I was gonna draw a wolf or maybe a deer. Those are my spirit animals. And a wolf and a lemur are my favorite all time animals. I also like cats. BUT I drew this lil fox creature. I thought it was so adorable that I couldn't just scrap it. So I went with it. I casually did this. So its not 100% perfect. I'm not gonna go into details. If you seriously wanna know details. PM ME! I'm a friendly person willing to share my story. ^^ In private.

J-and-K341 @ Mon Jun 10, 2019 4:12 pm

ooh looks great, i can see a couple of things that we share in common. ^^

I tried to draw a dog that sorta represents me, I'm not very good at doing Pc art, but I gave it my all! Tysm :lol:

      aaa im not sure i like how this ended up turning out... i definitely had something else in mind when i started but jsdgjsd the most important thing is that i made something!

      All the 'Things' (From top left to bottom right) wrote:1. The blue pooch: my fursona Inverness, they're an English Bull Terrier.
      2. My zodiac sign, Scorpio

      these are all set inside my attempt at a lemur silhouette - it doesn't look much like one... (here's the ref i used) & green is used a couple of times because its my favourite colour!

rowlet. @ Sun Jun 09, 2019 6:45 am

    Oh wow, I think this might be my favorite piece in the challenge gallery so far !! :o You did a fantastic job making it very clear what the silhouette represents, and all the inner details are mega cute ;v; I especially love the soot sprite with the paper star and the headshot of your fursona, and the way you added gray stripes to the lemur tail! <3

uhm yeah. posting this so i dont forget about it

I normally have really long hair to hide behind, but right now my hair is short due to the fact that I chopped it off for a fresh start.
(Yes, my hair is always messy, unless if I'm doing a photoshoot.)

I could've added a bunch more little images, but there wasn't enough room and I was to lazy to draw all of it.)

Things that could have been added, but I didn't:
-a dog
-a camera with a photo
-an eye
-a turtleneck sweater
-a blindfold
-a pink, broken heart
-a key
-a lock with an X in the middle
-a thought bubble
-a crescent moon

Things I did add:
-a rose
-a rainbow heart
-asexual flag
-an avocado
-a wolf
-a book
-a feathered pen with ink
-a question Mark
-Libra symbol
-a dreamcatcher
-a X over my mouth

Things I'm thinking about adding:
-a dark haze over the entire image

Man, I suck drawing humans....

    Hah, your character's expression is fantastic :D I also really like how you made the inner interests white so they stand out!

    (I recognize Deviantart and FlightRising's logos but can't quite recall the others, hmm...)

    There's not much going on in my head at any given time, in all honesty. But there are a handful of things that have shaped who I am as a person that I consider to be important!

    1.) Queer pride! I've learned a lot about myself thanks to the LGBTQ+ and queer community.

    2.) Pokemon! Even on my worst days I can smile when thinking about the creativity and good vibes of the series.

    3.) Food! I'm always happy to taste new things and enjoy old favorites. Life's too short to worry about counting calories or watching my weight - I'd rather be happy while eating and embrace my chubby appearance.

    4.) The sky! I've always felt a connection to the sky and weather in general. Relaxing and watching the clouds is my favorite way to spend time outdoors.

    5.) Self care! I've spent enough years beating myself up and hating who I am. In a cruel world, being kind to yourself is a revolutionary act.

    6.) Plants! This one's pretty new, because although I've always loved plants, I hope to learn how to care for them personally.

    7.) Reading! One of my main hobbies as a child was reading and that hasn't really changed ^^;

    8.) Love! In a similar vein to self care, I strive to always be a compassionate and friendly person, both to myself and others.

    9.) Wings! I'd love to be able to fly so I could weave among the clouds.... (But since I can't, I admire birds in the meantime.)

    10.) Animals! How could I not be fond of 'em?

    11.) Video games! I play mostly casual games and on consoles, but I also enjoy watching other genres in no-commentary let's plays.

    12.) Sleep! I just really like to snooze ∠( ᐛ 」∠)_

    this is not vent art! i just dislike others' opinions about me.

    if you can see the explosion on that corner, kudos for you! water color is hard ;w;

by birdio @ Sat Jun 08, 2019 9:10 pm [Reply]

Will probably add more later
From top to bottom, right to left:
Computer: I'm a cool epic computer gamer >:D
Bird: I really really really like birds
Pride: I'm a bisexual man
Paintbrush: drawing is awesome
Yuki and Tasha: I heccin love my dogs so much oml (/UwU)/*+.'* 💖

edit;I just noticed how similar the layout and colors are to the drawing posted before me that was mostly unintentional (I vaguely saw it but hot damn, my subconscious was doing something)
I fixed it to be more original (added a background)
