Oekaki, a genre of illustration taking place entirely on Internet forums, has inspired innumerable artists to create all manner of artistic creations, ranging from beautiful to erotic.

For those not familiar withお絵描き / oekaki, literally “drawing” or “doodle,” a brief explanation may be in order.

Oekaki in this context refers to a popular genre of BBS incorporating relatively unsophisticated paint programs into the site using Java or similar, where visitors can share and discuss their works in near real time.

The works produced can range from scribbles to masterpieces, and the distinctive rough, pixelated look characteristic of the format forms a style unique unto itself. Some artists specialise in the genre, and odd oekaki creations from famous artists often surface.

Both in Japan and internationally, such boards are most popular, with a wide variety of features and communities in evidence.
