Markings

Markings are dictated by the genotype of a character and each one has a set of limited guidelines for color, placement or intensity.

Don’t like the guidelines for how one of the markings including in your new genotype looks? Fear not!
  • Markings DO NOT have to be drawn on a submitted character to pass approval. If you don’t like a marking, just EXCLUDE it on the drawn artwork design. (Simply adjust the marking genotype to ‘include Carried ‘Any markings you exclude in the design’.)
  • These markings will still have the possibly of passing on during breeding,
  • However, you can not ADD markings outside a character’s genotype, please do not add drawn markings if your character does not have it listed in their genotype.
