Upcoming Flights/Runs:
Copper Laanasuth
Copper Zelsk

Upcoming Hatchings:
Red Cereza
Green Quince

Wedding bells ring out to celebrate the joining of Lord Callum to Lady Shuli. A grand gather has been put together with people from all over Pern coming to celebrate! Crescent is full to the brim with those who wish to show their support and those just looking to make (or spend) a few marks!

Copper Zelsk shook things up at the Copper Class graduation feast by beginning her run shortly after the knots were delivered to her handler. Bronze Osk won Zelsk's maiden run and now a sizable clutch lays on the sands hardening. Not to be outdone by the ground-bound copper, Copper Laanasuth took to the skies the very next day - though her flight was not as cut and dry as the wher's run had been. Offended by the force catch attempt of a presumptuous burgundy Laanasuth betweened to High Reaches Weyr where one of their dragons won her flight. Though she has returned to Dalibor and laid a large clutch for Dalibor's candidates the Weyr awaits the transfer of the dragon sire and his rider, Dalibor's newest Junior Weyrleader.

Hi guys!

So!
I'm going to app a Purplerider for the Transfer Contest.
As someone who has a moderate degree of difficulty seeing shades of Blue (due to damage to my eyes from working in a body shop as well as, I can only assume, my recent Diabetes diagnosis), I'm looking for someone who wouldn't mind helping me out with the art/hexes for a Purple dragon.

I'm willing to pay 350 marks for an art piece for said dragon (or 200 for a colored template, as having a pre-drawn one takes a lot of time out of the equation); the only stipulations are these -

- No eye-burning hexes, please. Pastels are amazing things, preferably ones light enough that I can tell them apart from the background/regular text (so no super, super dark ones or neon ones, basically, I use the Pillies of Dalibor skin).
- One or two other colors are preferred, as long as they're in-keeping with the base color (nothing too 'busy', or too 'plain').

I will still pay for the artwork, even if I don't win the slot, because people's time is valuable (and I love pretty things ;-;)!

Given the contest ends the 1st of August (a couple days), I'd like to have Hexes at least provided, so that I can fill out the app, and will (as stated above) still pay for the art even if I don't get the transfer!

Thanks in advance!

Cat can draw arts~ I'd just need a physical description and photo reference if there is a pose or pattern you would really like.

Dragon will be a bit long-tailed (with long tailforks). Thick legs, thick chest/shoulders, oversize wings, but rest of him is leaner. Slightly longer headknobs, squared off snout. Missing several of the spines on his haunches, also has a scar there from a mauling during a flight (he's really bitter about that, okay, how dare someone mess up his beautiful hide!) XD.

Any pose works!

Gotcha. Would a hex code like this work: af90bf

Or is it too light?

It's a little too close to the background, hard to read it. Sutekh's hex in my sidebar is as dark as I can go and still read it. So anything lighter towards white than that one would be awesome <3!

@Catsitta

Edited to add: Something like To'rua, B'er, or J'tar's as far as shade would be great! I can read those no problem against the background http://files.jcink.net/uploads/daliborweyr/smiley/Laughing.png.

Here you go, some dragon arts~ I'll happily make any adjustments you'd like since I'm not quite sure how close to the mark I am with what you have in your head. If you're happy with the current results, then I'll provide a larger version for you do with as you wish.
