Vibrancy lets you add a color to your dragon’s colors, even if it would normally fall outside of the elemental color scheme. This color can be anything (as such, it will never be recessive unless you really want it to be). This color does not have to obey the brightness rules of that marking (Faded, Monochrome, Albino, Melanism, and Greying will still override this). Vibrancy also does not effect the following traits: Vampire, Origin, Fairy, Wild, Shark, Dancer, Appaloosa, Dust, Tobiano, Pollen, and any color mutations. It can also add a gradient to existing markings. If the markings are separated (such as spots or pharaoh) then they can replace some of the colors as long as it goes in a pattern. If it is multi-layered (such as false eyes and dart frog), then it may affect one layer. It can also affect the base. All traits still need to be visible, so you can’t make fake albinos and whatnot. Let’s look at some examples!
This is a normal fire dragon with a normal palette.It has the markings Spotted, Scorched, and Underbelly.This is the design we’ll be applying Vibrancy to!
Here is a version with black Vibrancy.
The base color has been swapped to black.
Scorched is still there, but a bit darker.
Spotted was left alone.
Underbelly has a gradient that goes from black to orange.–Here is a version with cyan Vibrancy.
All markings are now cyan. Even though scorched normally needs to be darker, cyan Vibrancy allows it to be lighter here.–Here is yellow Vibrancy.
A yellow gradient has been added to the orange underbelly.Some of the scorched ends have been changed to yellow,
with the others left at their original color. This isan example of how even colors in the elementalpalette can change a design!–Here is a violet Vibrancy.
Violet has been added to the wings.The scorched marks on the legs are violet, with the rest staying the same.Some spots are violet instead of yellow. Some spots display a yellow-violet gradient.A violet gradient is on the underbelly (this time it’s horizontal!).
This allows you to add two colors rather than one.
