Pinto creates typically large sharp edged white patches all over the centaurs body. It can be considered as the opposite of Harlequin. Pinto marking in Sagittari is inspired by and includes irl equine paint markings such as tobiano and overo, and is similar to piebald. Sabino however is it's own marking.

Marking rules

  • Pinto patches can be anywhere between large and uniform to small and broken. 
    However it should never be too small and broken to resemble Sabino.
  • Pinto always sits on top of all other markings, including free markings. If other genes with same rule are present in the geno, then you can choose which one dominates the other.
  • Pinto's color should always be from slightly off-white to pure white. 
  • Pinto can cover anywhere from 10% to 90% of the centaurs body. The original basecolor must be visible under it. 
  • Pinto should not create too stripy pattern, or resemble other genes available in the game.

Recommended way to design a pinto is to create a white layer on top of your design, and remove patches of it with eraser.
That creates the most natural looking pinto patches. But this is not mandatory, and you are free to freehand pinto as well.
Below you can see some examples, but you are free to let your creativity flow!
