I've been looking at my gallery and my pictures seem to be awfully...colorless.


I'm extending an invitation to my fellow DeviantArtists to color my pictures.  There's no prize or anything - I'm just making them available to you guys.

Q:  Want to post something new on your profile, but don't have the time or inclination to start from scratch?

Q:  Experiencing "artist's block" but still able to hold a marker, crayon, or tablet pen?

Q:  Are you in danger of going absolutely certifiably insane if you don't color something, but your little sister won't share her coloring book and your mom will kill you if you color on the walls?

And just in case you haven't gotten the idea yet:

(P.S.  This is your official permission to COLOR MY ART!)

Just keeps these 4 basic rules in mind:
1.  Please credit me and provide a link back to my main profile if you use something of mine, thanks!
2.  Don't use my lineart for commercial purposes without written permission from me (and just so you know up front, that's more of a hassle than I'm interested in dealing with right now, so there's not really any point to asking.  If I change my mind, I'll edit this rule).  "Commercial purposes" includes making prints here on DeviantArt.
3.  Do not significantly alter my lineart (minor touch-ups or extra design lines are okay).  Specifically, do not alter it so that it is in any way pornographic, hateful, obscene, etc.  A good rule of thumb:  if the DA's mature filter would block it, I don't want it used that way.
4.  Share!  If you color my art, send ME a link - I'd love to see what you've done with it!  And you may share your colored version (NOT my original piece) on your Facebook page or whatever, or put it in your portfolio (if you're a colorist).  Again, please provide a link back to my profile so people can see my rules if they decide to color one of my pics themselves.

***I reserve the right to change/add to these rules at any time as I become aware of new areas where restrictions are necessary (though I'm pretty sure I've covered my bases).  I also reserve the right to request the removal of any artwork using my lineart that I feel breaks the terms of use.  Thanks, and have fun!***

Thank you for offering up your works for us colorists. ^^ It's very nice of you. I do have one question I'd like to get clarified before moving on my way to look around your gallery further. ;-)

Do adoptables/commissions fall under your rules as a no-go?

I appreciate you asking.  If money or points changes hands, I consider that to be commercial purposes, so adoptables/commissions using my lineart would be off-limits.

That said, you can color for yourself (or even for other people as long as it's FREE) as much as you like :)  Just be aware that the lineart and any characters depicted still belong to me.  Thanks!

I just might - after I learn how to do links!

Awesome! I will be looking forward to it :D

And links are easy: look to the right of a submitted deviation, a little past the "Details" section (you may have to scroll a bit). There will be a "Link" code and a "Thumb" code. If you want do do a link, copy the "Link" code and paste it in a comment. (If you do "Preview" it will say "[link]" if you did it right.) I hope that helps :)
