The Rainbow Appreciation Society

This topic has been approved by rubyshoes - thank you!

 

poptartFINALTINY.gifWelcome to the Rainbow Appreciation Society! poptartFINALTINY.gif

 

WHAT'S ALL THIS THEN?

This is a group lineage project to build, share and enjoy rainbow lineages of all kinds! Anything goes so long as it's rainbow-coloured, and other colour-transition lineages are also welcome here. Figured out how to do a lineage that shifts from green to purple? We'd love to see it!

 

BACKGROUND

I've been working on my own rainbow lineages for a while now and have been gifted or picked up some gorgeous rainbows bred by other people. I've also seen some stunning rainbow lineages show up in the Even/Perfect Generations and Great Lineages Found In AP threads. Given this, it seemed like a good idea to have a central place to collect all these beauties so that they can be shared, appreciated and combined.

 

BREEDS AND LINEAGES

Breeds: If you can make a rainbow pattern out of it, it's acceptable! This does rule out Drakes and Two-Heads for now, but we can hope that in time they'll get to join in the rainbow fun too.

Lineages: The type of lineage can be as desired, as long as there's a clear rainbow theme present. Even-gens, stairs and spirals are probably the most obvious examples of lineage types that can be bred with a rainbow theme. The aim is for breeders to share and combine lineages to produce ever-larger combinations of rainbows. Want to make a huge lineage of stair-step rainbows? Maybe we can help! biggrin.gif

 

RULES AND REGS

  • 1) Standard
forum rules apply. Please respect others and treat them as you would wish to be treated in turn. Otherwise, keep it rainbow-flavoured and it's all good!

2) Please use lineage links! Modly wrath will follow if you don't.

3) Please make sure you keep a back-up record of your dragons and lists somewhere else in case the thread needs cleaning.

DETAILS, DETAILS...

Want to just pop in and show off a pretty rainbow you found or donate a one-off egg? That's cool! smile.gif However, for those that really like to collect and breed rainbow lineages, you're warmly invited to use the handy sign-up form right below. Copy and paste it into a new post, then edit in your details. This post then becomes the home of all your rainbow progress - please keep it updated with details of any rainbow lineages you have.

FINISHED RAINBOW LINEAGES:

 

Colors of the Rainbow

Self-bred? yes (though some 2nd gens were gifts from others)

Brief description: 5th-gen EvenGen, mirrored rainbow.

The names of everything except the CB generation, read from left to right, top to bottom, makes up the lyrics for the chorus of "Colores en el viento", the Spanish version of the song "Colors of the wind" from Pocahontas.

Available for breeding requests? yes

 

Mirrored Rainbow Gaia

Self-bred? yes (though some 2nd gens were gifts from others)

Brief description: 7th-gen EvenGen, bred from 2 mirrored rainbow-Gaia 6th gens.

Available for breeding requests? yes

 

Rainbow Generations

Self-bred? yes, all from own scroll

Brief description: 2 11th-gen rainbow-stairsteps, both with the same breed-order; one male, one female stair. After completion, both were bred together to form an arrow.

Available for breeding requests? yes

 

Rainbow ARC

Self-bred? yes, all from own scroll

Brief description: 8th gen EvenGen, the 3rd gen being all purebreds, ordered in rainbow fashion.

All names are Spanish. The names of the 2nd and 3rd gens mean "Heir/heiress of XYZ" (Heredero/Heredera) and "Descendant of XYZ" (Descendiente) with XYZ being something referring to their breed. The names of the 8th to 4th gens form the poem "Arco iris" (Rainbow) by Mario Benedetti.

Available for breeding requests? yes

 

Edited because Rainbow Generations and Rainbow ARC are finished! biggrin.gif

Somewhere over the rainbow

Self-bred? yes, but I got great help with some of the 2nd Gens smile.gif

Brief description: 6th-gen EvenGen.

The idea was to create a picture of a rainbow as it could be seen in nature (well, the colour scheme does not really fit with a natural rainbow.). The dragons are supposed to have no gender specific looks to give the rainbow a consistent look. No rares are included to prevent this lineage project from being an endless try.

@Aulendil - linked you in the members list! Good to have you on board. smile.gif

 

@Daydreamer09 - That's absolutely fine, you only need to do the forms if you want to join as a declared rainbow breeder. smile.gif Popping in to show off a rainbow lineage or offer the occasional egg is great!

 

------

 

I've made a bit of progress with some of my rainbow lineages - I bred another colour block for the rainbow of DOOM, and I finally managed to breed this Magma for my gaia rainbow. I checked the dates on the parents - the father was bred in April, I didn't manage to breed the mother until September and they're made me wait until almost February to give me the right egg. %*&*%^ dragons! rolleyes.gif

I'm working on a reproduction of the Tones lineage and something similar with Luminas around the edges, but I'm having trouble with the second. Can't seem to make the rainbow work the way I want.

Man I'm terrible! >< Sorry to mix you up with Amazon_Warrior. I think it's the fact that you mentioned 'rainbow' and 'stairstep' that made me think of this thread immediately and mistakenly link you as the thread owner. ^^"

 

So... okay... now I read what you said again, maybe you're suggesting two separate things, but like amazon mentioned in the first post, we can combine stairstep with rainbow. Do you have any suggestions to how to do it? tongue.gif The first thing came to my mind is a combo of V-shaped lines arranged in rainbow colours..

I have a compilation of the lineage pictures in rainbow order. :D I'm not sure how helpful it'll be as everyone sees a rainbow in a slightly different way, but I might as well throw it out here. C: (NOTE: It's flawed in that it doesn't have the newer releases, and includes spriter's alts, but I don't plan on fixing it since a newer version wouldn't be markedly more helpful.)

 

 

 

 

(carrying this conversation from the even-gen thread)

 

@hat17 - My comments: Marrows are really black, so I feel they'd interrupt the flow from the Red Dorsal to red Neb. Waterhorse and Skywing are so close in color I don't think having them both would help the rainbow flow any better. The gray white of the Shadow Walker between the Snow Angel and White Stripe seems off because the SA and Stripe are a more yellowy-white. I like the pairing of Water x Blusang. :D I also like how the green Neb follows the Ribbon Dancer - both are so sparkly. XD But that's just random stuff that I came to me about after I scanned over your plan, while as you probably took a while deciding on that order. XD

 

@hat again - XD It's fine!

 

I think I've seen a rainbow arrowhead like that, but I can't find the link now. It ended with horses. :D Do you want to do a rainbow with a gradient like your even-gen one or one where each block is a separate color? It's harder to do a gradient since there are less dragons to work with, but with the block colors people often choose the same dragons. (ex: Red -> Magi -> Gold)

I think block is easier, and probably look better for a stair/V-shaped lineage. Or maybe something like this to represent colour pink for example. I'll have to think this over.

 

Oh and thanks for the feedback on my plan. The reason I put marrow there is to put red neb at the bottom (since it's female). Let me play around a bit with your lineage picture resources and maybe a better arrangement can be managed. smile.gif

 

edit:

How about something like this? Check my sig link again. smile.gif I've swap the red dorsal and marrow which I agree looks better than marrow with red neb. I don't know what to do with water horse and skywing though... shadow seems to look okay with white stripe in lineage view, maybe just 'cos the pics are so small. xd.png

I'm seriously drooling over these lineages. GORGEOUS. I want to do a rainbow pygmy but I have no pumpkins. =/ But I have a mspaint project ive been filling in to show myself how I want to make this lineage!

 

I was also tempted to do one with just checkers (do a red/red checker, then a red/orange, orange/yellow..) and slowly have it melt into the next color. I just get distracted, hehe.

For a rainbow based on the shape in the link, would you be making a block for each color and then combining them? That sounds really cool. *_*

Whoaa. O: It looks so fancy with all the lineage pictures in there. :D And now that I scroll through, I love the Gold/Pillow/Terrae progression - I might do an even gen with that. XD

 

I'm not sure about the W. Horse/Skywing either, as you've basically used all the blue breeds besides Daydream, which doesn't really fit. Perhaps just leave it? And right, I forgot the CBs would be the mini pictures since it's a 5th gen. (Something I learned from purplehaze - the Action Log uses the mini pictures, so you can breed a dragon and immediately have the pic you need!) I agree it looks fine now that I've actually seen it. :D

That's what my initial thought was, unless there are other suggestion to how a rainbow stair works. I've already done one for blue colour that was planned to mate with the silver above, but since they produced nothing but electrics maybe I should find him another job. xd.png Maybe 4-8 blocks of these V's of different colours, and have them alternating from light->dark->light? What do you think?

 

*runs to draw a plan*

 

edit:

I've managed to draw a V for each of the red/pink, brown/yellow, green, blue, black/white and purple, but that's only 6... I don't think we have two more colour themes? tongue.gif

I think that if you switched the lighter blues with the darker blues, you can make the transition easier by going from the greens with the mint, canopy or adding in a waterwalker.

 

Seeing blacks and whites in rainbow lineages is something I'm never going to get use to. My brain always goes on rants about the difference between hues, tints and shades.

This is really awesome guys! Love the lineages and ideas everyone's coming up with - stuff I never even thought of, which is brilliant! biggrin.gif

 

@Saloiq - Would you mind if I linked your super-handy rainbow-sort image in the first post?

 

@Daydreamer09 - Know what you mean about Blacks/Whites, but I've done it myself. :s Though, for my big colour-block rainbow, I've used white/silver-coloured dragons to represent white light and the other blocks represent the seven "true" rainbow colours (ROYGBIV) that light splits into. I have no such excuse for my double-rainbow lineage! xd.png

I know what you meant, and I feel the same way too, but adding gray-scale dragons is the only way I can come up with that fills the rest of the pattern without using too many blue dragons (I think I've already used too many lol). Maybe I should cut back one gen...

 

My V's idea were originally only have 5 blocks, the black/white was just an after thought... Maybe I should just do the red/green/orange/blue for now, as my purple idea includes lurkers anyway (which means I'd need 3 years to complete... what am I getting myself into... *facepalm*)
