Firefly got me thinking of uses for bad tertiaries, and I had an idea that's a bit... niche. But potentially extremely useful. I was looking at all my earlier dragons with poor tertiaries that I couldn't use, and in about 80% of those cases, the dragon would have looked excellent with a tertiary color exactly opposite of what it had. And then I was thinking of how newer genes use tertiary/quarternary colors that are often unrelated to the color itself, like chocolate having aqua accents or orca having lime green.

So my idea: Negative. Puts some kind of pattern on the dragon, maybe stripes or a nice brindle on the side, or an organic-looking lattice. But the pattern isn't important. It could be anything. The point of the gene is that whatever accent appears on the dragon, it does so in the photo negative of the dragon's tertiary. So a robin tertiary would become a very dark brownish-red, abyss would become a very pale orange, and banana would become a rich purple. It takes the tertiary color and flips it in hue and brightness (but not saturation.) The only color-wheel color that would appear as-is is gray.

I'm not sure how such a gene would be accepted, though - if people would see it as 'cheating', in a sense. It would be a difficult one to use in breeding. But it would save a lot of progens and other such dragons with wildly clashing terts, and it's not like it lets you slap any tertiary color onto a dragon - just the exact opposite of what it has.

I don't know if this has already been suggested but I would like a wing gradient gene. Something like the wing gradient you get with circuit but without the lines.

That looks cool, good work :)

@Zwynx

I really like Phoenix, it would probably be a very expensive gene, since it alters the dragon's original design (although firefly kind of does that with the Pearlcatcher)

I would personally like to see a tertiary involving spots. Something called like Dapple with some light spotting on certain parts of the dragon.

There's no way to put this delicately lol and it'll never happen But Usable Scales that doesn't have that very odd strip above the stomach [img]https://i.imgur.com/EfAWGEJ.jpg[/img] [i]we coulda had it all[/i] I LOVE the details on this gene, whoever did that did a good job but I will never be able to use it because of that aspect, it is just so weird and unnecessary. And I could understand it if it made sense/mimicked a natural animal but it doesn't even do that. If it was just the extremities ("beak", legs, and i guess hands of the wings but I don't like it much there either) I can guarantee it'd be a much more used gene. Honestly for future tertiary genes I wish the community could vote. So many (e.g. contour, lace, scales, thylacline, okapi) have small aspects that make them hard to work with in ways there seems to be a common consensus on. It just seems like a waste of the artist's effort making them for every breed only for them to be extremely niche at best for a reason that could've easily been fixed. I see a far more equitable spread of diverse primary/secondary usage, with tertiaries people really only stick to a few in my experience. Also I want some naturalistic markings (spots, stripes, etc) but I don't want all of them to use gradients because those often just look very flat to me. You can use a gradient within a solid area of the tertiary but when it fades into the pri/sec it often causes issues. I also think spotted underbelly that is as complex as jag/ros and is ONLY on the undersides (to make it most usable) would be awesome.

- Seeking Cream/Gold/(lighter tert)/Light uncommon eyes Male (Edward Elric fandragon)
- Breeding Mist/Butterfly & Bee Mint/Pistachio Coatls and WCs
This idea is sorta like, have you ever seen someone put a flashlight in their mouth? You know that odd translucent glow where you can see the light through the skin? Something like that would be interesting, maybe only be able to see the glow in certain area's maybe?

The idealist sees the world as it should be. The realist sees the world as it is. The pessimist sees both.
Something pretty subtle and simple but would be quite versatile: a tert that color a dragon claws/nails, around the eyes like eye shadows and maybe the tips on the horns (or head frills/head feathers on the hornless breeds). Sort of like a "makeup" tert I suppose. The color can be a bit glittery.

Yes please! 100% support this is super nice, it would definitely solve the problem of a bad tert color and balance out the dragon at the same time
