Pern Dragon Baby Template by lXxMellodyxXl Pern Dragon Baby Template by lXxMellodyxXl
Well. Yeah. What the title says. This is a free-for-use template for a Pernese dragon hatchling. You can download the original PSD file to get the full layers, which will include a layer of shadows and a layer with highlights. You color in the layers called "Base" and "Eye". Of course the Eye layer will color the eye, base is everything else. You can color the background in if you like. Or leave it transparent like I prefer to...

Recommended for use with Photoshop or Photoshop elements, will also work on GIMP. Dunno about other programs, but Paint won't like it. On GIMP, set the highlights layer to Screen or Dodge. Whichever makes you happier. (Or just get rid of it. That works too.)

Anyone may use this so long as my signature remains intact. This includes just around DA, or on RP forums. You don't have to link back here, but it would be nice if you did so other folks can use it if they like.

Feel free to show me what you make with it. I'd love to see. For anyone wondering, here's what it looks like in the original canon colors: [link]

Don't claim it as your own or try to sell it for profit. Don't be that guy.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful base.  I had a lot of fun learning how to use it since I had never used one like it before.  I wanted to share the dragon I created with it -

Thanks so much for allowing us to use this cute little baby! Now that I've finally figured out how to re-color files in GIMP, I can have adorable chibi hatchling versions of all my dragons. :D

how do i get the file? o.o

Up top right, there's a button under "Favorite" that says "Download". Usually that might be a larger file than the one on dA, but in this case it's the actual PSD. Just click that. :]
