The Black Dragon Skin (or also known as Melanistic Kickstarter Skin) is an exclusive reward to all Kickstarter backers who pledged for the "Hatchling Tier" $18 or higher during Day of Dragons Kickstarter campaign. Owners of of the Kickstarter "melanistic" black skin are capable of selecting this skin from their main menu upon spawning, and it is useable in any playable dragon species. This skin is not the same as Dark Elemental Skin and does not come up with the Elementals' character selection screen.
