Any insights/strategy in finding red Alcedines?

Just grab all the eggs you can. The color that hatches is random.

I'm not usually into goody-goody dragons due to being an overused personality-type but the Amalthean dragons are just too well made for me to have an issue with them. The colors, the design, the art style the wooden horns, the reference to part of my childhood...They're almost perfect!

Absolutely loveeeeeee the adult sprites! Great job done guys! 

 

My personal favorite is the sapo dragon sprite. Something about the colours and the sprite just touched my heart. How the little tadpole looking hatchie evolved into this beauty!!  Definitely aiming to hoard these heh. 

 

Again, great job done!!!!

Sapo, latin for Soap. Not very creative there =P

axolotl similarities and betta fish similarities

I love their smiles, whiskers and gradient.

I enjoyed the concept of the fins becoming more vibrant as they aged.

Oh yeah, these dragons are THICC. Think seals ;)

 

colors + single pose = trans

( I noticed this similarity as I was picking out my colors, and the fact that if it only had one pose, then it would continue the thought into a sentence. We are all precious.)

image is the painting in progress~

Did Mizutsune from Monster Hunter series play any role as an inspiration? ^^ Just asking since they are kinda similar, both being soapy dergs ❤️

Got 2 of each apart from the pygmy ones ( I can't seem to find any), no problem though as I'm not a huge fan of pygmies....don't get me though wrong the art is awesome as it is with all the new ones, the Jesters are my natural favorite though as I have a fondness for the 2 headed dragons >.<

Still want to know why Alcedines are all female

 

They aren't, my first Alcedine egg precogged and gendered male.

Nope. I don't play that game, and don't know anything about that critter.

I'm so glad! I was wondering if it was just a typo on TJ's part, because two different female sprites was weird with no males to go with them. So the males are blue? Or are there two sets of Alcedine that use the same sprite for male and female?

There are two colors that each use the same sprites for males and females.

It's an alt; there's no gender dimorphism. The color that hatches is entirely random.

 

Edit: lol ninja'd by that much.

I wonder if they will breed true?

I hope that there's at least a *chance* at them breeding the other colours, too XD

For the Alcedines, has the reason been confirmed yet as to how to get each color? A friend traded me a blue for a pink/red as both of mine hatched pink/red.

The coloration has been confirmed to be random. Any egg could hatch into either color.

Awesome! Thanks, @Kith :D

Oh my gosh, I absolutely adore the Labradorites, the females especially. ❤️ 😍 They are staggeringly eerie, I love it. I'm so going to have to pair them with Arsanis. Not even a contest. XD

Are the blue Alcedines more common? I seem to be seeing more of those in hatcheries and trades and both of my hatchies so far are blue/

As I understand it, they were all blue at first - so those who caught theirs early will all be blue. Like mine are :( Then reds fell a lot to catch up....

Guess I'm lucky to have one of each right now.  Got two more eggs today - we'll see.

- This is so sweet. Thank you all!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

- A collection of all the things said so far about the dragons!


All the art is so lovely!

 

I didn't see anything for the Labradorite dragons though. (Or I just missed it.)

Oops, I guess I should have posted this!  My original sketch for the labradorites.  Doha spiced up the head design with horns when we were working on the sprites.  My headcanon for size is that they're sorta like goldfish - the bigger the cave, the bigger the Labby (plus those in mana-rich caves would grow faster than others).  I'd imagine most of them aren't overly enormous, but the occasional cryptid inhabiting a mammoth cave system may be scary large.  But still friendly little buggers.  Probably the type to pop out of a hole suddenly and scare someone because they've been waiting so long for someone to get close enough that they can share their eerily intuitive/specific life advice or WIP script for this amazing play they've written and oh my gosh you're just gonna love this character! Wait, why are you running away?

*snort-laughs at spatio's description of Labradorite's personality* Oh goodness now I love them even more, I now have a perfect mental image of an excited Labradorite head popping out of a hole suddenly wanting to chat with the human.
