AGNPH Help Pages (Oekaki)

What is the Oekaki?

The Oekaki is an in-browser drawing app that allows artists to draw/sketch a piece, then post it directly to the site. Most modern browsers should be supported correctly, but let a staff member know if you find any bugs or have ideas on how to make the software better.

What about my old Oekaki account?

If you used to have an oekaki account, don't fear! It's still on the site, and you can log in with it as normal (or import/merge it into your existing AGNPH account). All your previous image posts should still be visible.

Pen Pressure Support

The oekaki supports pen pressure on some tablet devices. Refer to the following list depending on your browser.

Mozilla Firefox
Wacom tablet drivers should include firefox plugin support when you install them. You will be prompted to allow the plugin when first visiting the oekaki.

Note: Native plugin support may be removed from Firefox later in 2016.

Google Chrome
Pen pressure in Chrome is supported via chrome extension and a native plugin (for some tablet brands).

  1. Install this Stylus Pressure extension from the Chrome store.
  2. Visit the oekaki. Click the red stylus icon in the toolbar and download the native plugin installer. Alternatively, you can download the native plugin here as well.
  3. Install the native plugin, then refresh the oekaki page. The icon should no longer be red.

Internet Explorer/Edge
Pen pressure support is built in to Windows and the latest Internet Explorer/Edge browser. This should support many major tablet brands.
