Dance of Balance 01 lineart by rachaelm5 Dance of Balance 01 lineart by rachaelm5
Edit: I thickened up the linework on this drawing - at second glance, the 5-pt brush size is just too small. Using Nifty Photoshop Tricks, I thickened the lines to make them much easier to read.

This lineart is freely available for coloring. If you decide to color this lineart, here is my lineart usage policy:

:bulletblue: Please include a link back to the original lineart. This is necessary for reposting to any of the Color-Me groups.

:bulletblue: Please include a link to me, *rachaelm5. This is necessary for reposting to any of the Color-Me groups.

:bulletblue: Please tell me when you've finished coloring the picture so I can show off your work!

:bulletblue: You may repost your coloring outside of DeviantArt, unless I specify otherwise in the description.

:bulletblue: You may not repost this design, or colorings of this design, as adoptables for points or money. I post this design freely for you to color; I ask that you do not go off and profit from it.

:star: I reserve the right to sell my own colored version of this design, as it is my own lineart. I state this here in my usage policy so that no one will be confused about me breaking my own policies when I get the project completely finished.
:star: Corollary: I will never do anything to anyone else's colored versions beyond appreciation and praise.




This is another one of those reverse-engineered lineart exercises. The original artwork went straight from pencil to full color, but the design was still strong enough that I thought I'd do a line drawing over the top of it and then open it up to other colorists. :-)

Thank you!

"Simple but complicated" is a good way to describe most of my work. It does make sense when you break it down into its basic components. :D

Right! You only used black and white but the strokes are a maze of curved lines - like being in a labyrinth painted black and in the dark: You don't know it's a puzzle until you look really close and see it for what it really is!
