What is it?
ChibiPaint Oekaki is a work-in-progress open source oekaki applet written by Codexus

Can I test it yet?
Yes! It's not entirely finished yet but many artists have already used it to create amazing artworks. You can test it on its official website: or the french oekaki board E-Kaki

Happy Birthday ChibiPaint
The ChibiPaint oekaki project started exactly 2 years ago. Unfortunately it isn't advancing very quickly but at least it's not dead. Right now I've started a major rewrite that's going to take a long time to be completed but that'll enable the development to continue on better foundations. So if there aren't any new releases for a while it doesn't mean I've forgotten about ChibiPaint...

May I ask what did you change? Did you add an animation function?
Predelnik Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If you mean animation is like animating your drawing process, then no, I guess it would be very hard to add it, sadly.

I changed actually very minor things, mostly concerning ability to work with program completely offline, saving all your preferences between sessions, remembering last opened files and so on. About actual drawing I only made fill tool usable by adding ability to use it with some color distance (like in paintTool SAI) and some really minor stuff. Guess I need to write proper changelog somewhere. xD

Oh, that's sad. :(
Well the other changes sound interesting too (especially the preferences save :p ).

Just out of curiosity, does anyone have scripts to run ChibiPaint on a website? My coder is no programmer XD and she couldn't find any of the scripts online for ChibiPaint.
If no one here can answer, I understand. But if anyone has an idea of the right direction to point me in I would very much appreciate the help!
I am a big fan of ChibiPaint and think it would be a lovely addition to my site <3

Wacintaki poteto is an easy way to install an oekaki board including chibipaint: [link] :D

Thank you so much for the reply! Sorry that I did not get back to you until now. I really appreciate the link to the site.
We currently now have our oekaki version in testing with our mods to see how they like it. So once again thank you so much!
I have a question though, do you know of a way to merge the board with our current forum so that our members don't have to sign up again to draw on it? We currently already run a forum and our members already have to sign up for two parts (we currently have no way of merging our forum and the adoptions section) so if we could minimize on that it would be great. However if you don't know and no one else on this page knows we'll go looking around to see if we can find an answer around. We've already looked around but with a deeper search we might get lucky XD

Sorry I don't really know that much about the board software actually. You could try asking on their support forum maybe they'll know if there is some solution available. Other than that it shouldn't be too hard for anybody with some php programming knowledge to modify the forum or board code to make it work...

I have a question:
In ChibiPaint you can rotate your picture but only for a better view and you can move things individually but I canīt find any tool to rotate single parts.
Is there anything I just oversight or so?
Plese help me. I would be happy about an answer (;

Sorry that's not possible in the current versions...
