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 - fav.me/d87mxmn

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

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. :]

Hello, I used your adorable lineart here: hemulen717.deviantart.com/art/… and here: hemulen717.deviantart.com/art/… . Might end up using it more, I'll throw you links again if I do. Thank you very much!

Why is the tail not forked?
Reply
:iconlxxmellodyxxl:
lXxMellodyxXl Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013  Student Interface Designer
A couple reasons. One of which is that some people prefer the "spade" tail thing as opposed to the split tail and this is a compromise that works. The other reason is artistic liberty. Just didn't want a split tail in there. Wouldn't have been as cute. Not necessarily because split tails aren't cute, but because I'm not so good at shading them.

The split is how its supposed to go, according to the text

The split is where the excretory hole is located on 'em
Reply
:iconsecondpass:
SecondPass Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2013
Actually, it isn't. It is located at the base of the tail, near-ish the hind quarters, much like one would see in a whale or other marine mamma - or, theoretically, a dinosaur.
Reply
:iconzeldatheswordsman:
ZeldaTheSwordsman Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2013
Nope. They specifically state in Dragonflight that the excretory hole is located in the fork of the tail.

Can this be used for adopts paid in real money? I found someone on FA using it for an adoptable, however they did link you in the description.

:iconlxxmellodyxxl:
lXxMellodyxXl Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2013  Student Interface Designer
I consider points effectively the same as money, as they are bought with real money, so yes they may. So long as my template is credited I'm good. And considering the other reply to your post, it seems to have been.

If you do come across this being sold without credit given to me, do let me know.

:iconekbellatrix:
EKBellatrix Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2013
Will do! FA seems to be rampant with people recoloring lineart, so when it's obvious I always try and find the original artist to make sure it's okay with them. Some kids don't seem to understand when other artists don't want their lineart used for profit. 

Love this picture, by the way. I really need to re-read the Pern series. Such fantastic books <3

As this would be considered selling a color/pattern design and NOT the specific image, I will say yes.

If people want to sell COLORED versions of this they may, so long as credit for the template is given to me.

Thank you very much for checking first, by the way.

Ahh, okay. Awesome, I'll definitely credit you whenever I use it and instruct anyone who adopts my colored versions to credit you as well. 

No problem, thanks a bunch for getting back to me!! <3
