Spring Exuberance Lineart by rachaelm5 Spring Exuberance 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.




This is the first leg of a four-part art trade with :iconlakandiwa:. We decided to each do pictures with dragons centered around the four seasons. I thought the lines for my set were strong enough to present as color-mes, so I'm getting them cleaned up for submission here at DA. More to come!

There is my colored version. Yay for 3 weeks off of school to dedicate to coloring. :wow:

I couldn't decide on a background.:(

Wonderful; thanks!


Backgrounds are no big deal; when I can't think of one (which is 98% of the time...), I just throw in some watercolor to fill it in.  ;-)

Holy moly, awesome composition! How do you manage to bend your dragons in such imaginative poses and still keep them looking natural!?
This picture deserves serious applauds: :clap:

I hope we'll see also yourself coloring this one. ^^

Thanks very much!

I think of snakes flying through the air, and long-finned fish swimming through water. I think the effect is more swimmerly than anything else, and from there it's just a matter of balancing the shapes of the composition so that the read the way I like. :-)

You're welcome!

And thanks for the explanation - I guess I have to start to study different species (and not just the few fav ones) to learn how to make such flowing poses. ^^

I can send you a .jpg version if you like, but you ought to be able to flatten the image in most any program so that it is black lines on white background.

Whoah, that is exuberant indeed! I love how you've expanded the dragon's body into a design element. The feathers have a leafy look but still clearly look like part of its body.

By the way, was this lineart originally done digitally or in pen?

Thanks! My dragons tend to be more about design elements than anything else these days. I love to play with design.

I originally did this with pen and ink, then I run it through Photoshop to clean it up a bit.

OK, thanks! I use pen too, so I'm glad to know there's hope for cleaning it up XD
