Prevents most display traits from showing on your dragon and covers the dragon with a black or near-black mark. Its eyes will be brown or black, unless it has True Sight. Some things which affect the texture of scales, such as Shimmer, Iridescence, or Gilded, will still display. In areas where the scales are thin, some dark brown coloring may show through, and you may also use dark brown as accents on the body of the dragon. You may erase areas of black to let the regular base show through–these patches will still be darker colored than normal. You may also show markings lighter than the base as a dark brown color. Here is an example of the same Melanistic dragon from above with Bioluminescence showing.
