This lineart is freely available for coloring. If you decide to color this lineart, here is my lineart usage policy:
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.
You may not repost this black and white design on your own page for others to color, nor for any other reason.
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.
Please tell me when you've finished coloring the picture so I can show off your work!
You may share your coloring outside of DeviantArt, unless I specify otherwise in the description.
I reserve the right to sell my own colored version of this design, as it is my own lineart.
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.
Also, I haven't tried the .png format before. Let me know if it gives anybody trouble and I'll fiddle with it. The viewable art you see and the downloadable art are the same size.
The vast array of colored versions of this dragon may be seen in the Awesome Colorists Journal 1 .
More Stone Dragons, both line designs and full-color, may be seen in the Stone Dragon Gallery Folder.
Ok I'm using this.
Idk when I'll finish tho.
But I'm deffs using this.
I've already tried to color it, but it's not working for some reason. But oh well, your an amazing artist. XD
Yes, this picture took some time to draw and ink, and then clean up for the digital version. I am happy with all of the details and I have gone on to make quite a few more pictures like it.
What kind of problem are you having with the image? Does it look odd when you load it into your image editing program, or did it print badly?
I use the Gimp program, and when I open the image it just comes up black, but I don't mind. Happy fourth of July! XD
I created these super-complex dragon designs one stage at a time. I draw the body and wings, then grid out the scales, then add all the little details. It's something that I've taken many years to learn how to do; it was certainly very hard at first, but now it's much easier.
You might do some searches here at DeviantArt for Dragon Tutorials; you'll find a lot of different ideas about how to get dragons to look realistic, or to get a cartoon stylization that you like.
