Welcome to the Oekaki Tutorial, brought to you by Ninja-Monkey.com!
From my personal experience, I've put together a tutorial
for you explaining functions and techniques in the oekaki
Paint BBS v.2.04. I've done this because to be honest, I haven't
found many good oekaki tutorials out there. I remember how
frustrating it was for me at the beginning wondering what
all the functions were and how to execute some of the great
oekakis I'd seen on Kapolo Club's oekaki.
I've divided the lessons into Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced.
Also, I hope to have a few guest oekaki experts explain their
techniques as well. Though understanding is a good foundation
for becoming a great artist (in every media) practical application
and experimentation will make these lessons concrete. I recommend
both practicing and experimenting with the oekaki functions.
Don't be intimidated. We all have to start somewhere.
Finally, I hope these lessons will help you. If you have
any questions, I'll work on erecting an FAQ to answer them.
