Jade Synergy lineart by rachaelm5 Jade Synergy 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.

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

I tried a different scanning technique on this drawing: I scanned it as a black and white bitmap, then stitched the two halves together as grayscale images (because transparency isn't available for bitmaps in Photoshop). I cleaned up the small amount of white pixels that resulted from the joining of layers, then saved it as a .png.

I'm puzzled, though; the download .png file still has a white halo around the black linework, when that was NOT in the version that I uploaded. I'm going to guess that it's a file translation problem between Phtoshop and DeviantArt, and I apologize for any headaches it causes you. I'll continue to fiddle with successive lineart files in an effort to get truly clean linework. Set your brush to "multiply"...


Colored versions are too many to post in this description, since I have a six-thumbnail limit. They can now be seen in the Awesome Colorists 4 journal entry. :D


More Stone Dragons, both line designs and full-color, may be seen in the Stone Dragon Gallery Folder.

I don't know if this matters to you much, but this artwork (along with mine and a few others) is being used in false advertising for a "dragon brush". I just thought I would inform you. designshovel.com/go/pgcaab

I've found that, if you fill all the transparent places with white, you can get really clean lineart.

rachaelm5 Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Ahhh yes, but that's a problem if you're actually trying to make the background transparent in the first place. 

 

It's not a big deal now; I figured out how to make clean black lines without the white fringe since posting this picture.  :-)

May I use this to decorate one of the slides on a slideshow project I'm doing about a city in Japan for my Japanese III class, please? I'm not quite sure if I'm allowed to after reading your rules, so I'm asking to be sure. Thank you for your time. :)

Yes, if it's a not-for-profit activity like a school project, that's okay with me, too. Thank you for asking first; I really appreciate it. :D

^_^ You draw dragons, mythical creatures, predator, and, aliens...ya I'm all kinds of giddy now. ^_^.
He's so cool looking. I have a small statuette that looks like this dragon, that a family friend got for me while he was in the army. I love oriental dragons they have to be some of my favorite types of dragons. ^_^

It's a toss-up on some days - do I like Predator or dragons more? I still go back and forth. :D

You're very welcome. ^_^

:nod: Same here, espshally the dragons from Skyrim, or Draco from Dragonheart! I still have a few of my McFarlane Dragons, one of them is called "Predator dragon". I'll have to take a photo of him sometime.^_^
It's always hard to choose between the two, so I make my brain happy and have a yautja riding a dragon. xD

I agree - it would have to be a tattoo all over someone's back. :D

I don't think I have any sword-wielders in my gallery. There are plenty of dragons with instruments in hand, but most of them are feral types. You'd have to go a-hunting.

Thanks very much. With these designs, I'm working to find the right balance between "just enough detail" and "I can't understand what I'm looking at" detail. So far, these designs are riding the fine line between the two extremes rather nicely. :D
