Bald is a marking that adds a white patch to the beasts’ face, which covers at least the nose, mouth and eyes and may be extended toward the neck.
While it is possible to use this marking to cover up everything from nose to shoulders, it is also allowed to have some larger holes in it. It can also be used similarly to Unders for example, and only cover the underside of the beasts’ neck together with the bare minimum on the face.
The color of it can be pure white (HEX: #FFFFFF, RGB: rgb(255,255,255)), but slightly off-white colors are okay too as long as it is still recognizable as white, looks natural, and is not overly yellow or blue.
This marking was inspired by bald eagles and other birds and horses having similar, large blaze markings, feel free to take them as inspiration if you have troubles designing your beast!
Relevant to: –
Edge: Hard or Textured (Hard)
