You may repost your coloring outside of DeviantArt, unless I specify otherwise in the description.
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.
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. I will never do anything to anyone else's colored versions beyond appreciation and praise.
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.
More Stone Dragons, both line designs and full-color, may be seen in the Stone Dragon Gallery Folder.
