Marking rules

  • The marking must be white or offwhite, sitting naturally with the basecolor. It can depict slight color tone from the basecolor, but cannot be too saturated. 
  • Bicolor is an intact marking and cannot be broken into separate clusters. All bicolor points in the body need to be contacted to each other. Bicolor on tail can seem separate, but must fit the markings look. 
  • Bicolor has no layering rules and can sit over or under anything.

Bicolors's affect on face

Bicolor can cover most of centaurs face. It also allows some creative freedom with patterns. Below you can see some examples! The bicolor markings should look natural-ish, and can be referenced from face patterns seen on animal kingdom. Bicolors face pattern doesn't need to be symmetrical. Remember that bicolor cannot be a broken marking, so face alone cannot have patterning. It needs to travel down neck to reach other bicolor areas. If you want "floating" patterns, it's recommend using Natural White.
Bicolor cannot create skull-looking patterns, as that's reserved for Skeleton -gene.
