Distant Star lineart by rachaelm5 Distant Star lineart by rachaelm5
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, and a link to me, rachaelm5. This is necessary for reposting to any of the Color-Me groups, and also a courtesy that I appreciate.

:bulletblue: You may not repost this black and white design on your own page for others to color, nor for any other reason.

:bulletblue: You may not repost this black and white line design, or colorings of this design, as adoptables, nor may you sell it for points or for money.

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

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


:star: I reserve the right to sell my own colored version of this design, as it is my own lineart.
:star: Corollary: I will never do anything to anyone else's colored versions beyond appreciation and praise. They will be linked in the lineart's description, or in an Awesome Colorists journal here on DeviantArt, but absolutely nowhere else.


.....................................


Yes, it's weird, abstracted, and complicated. I *like* coloring stuff like this. :D


.........................................

Here is a JPG version for those who have trouble with the PNG file.



Colored versions are now in the Awesome Colorists 6 journal!

hey, I tried coloring this lineart here :)


now as I see your colored versions, I'm wondering if I shouldn't have tried making a background as well...ah, maybe next time hehe :D

thanks for putting it up for coloring. Really enjoyed it :excited:

Thank you!

Don't worry; everybody does these guys differently, and that is what I like so much about posting the lineart for artists to color.  I use the background colors to coordinate my color schemes a lot of the time, and also to eat up that dreadful empty white space; not everyone feels so strongly about it.  ;-)

no I totally understand why people would like to get rid of the white parts. I do it myself when I can....just that .... huge empty wide spaces ain't so cool to color with pens.... one day in the future, I will try to get around to digital art, so maybe I can provide decent backgrounds hehe :p

[link] < I colored your line art. It was very fun. Though I was a little impatient so I used the fill tool a lot but I also did some of the coloring myself. I was just a little excited to put this up. :)

LOL - I can understand the impatience. I have to set these drawings down sometimes just to let my hand and brain have a rest. Thanks for coloring!

I practiced for about twenty years. ;p

I use a lot of photographic references to figure out anatomy, color, and pattern. My birds contain elements of real birds like parrots and hawks, but also patterns like those you'd see in butterfly wings and in the scales of tropical fish. Same for dragons. I use horses and cats to help me plan the anatomical structure, and I use fish, birds, snakes, butterflies, and other things like that to help me plan the patterns and colors on the wings and body.

They're a lot of work, I admit (as I've colored quite a few of them), but I think you'll really enjoy the results once your hand stops throbbing. ;-)

Yup! I was thinking that each star in the universe has its attendant Phoenix - just the one - and as each star has different chemical properties, so each Phoenix would look different from the others.
