Bloodmark is a marking that adds darker colored or reddish patches on the beasts’ body.
Darker colors may be picked freely, however, the reddish colors have to be picked from either our Earth or Darkwood Earth swatches.
While these patches can be broken up and be in different areas of the beast, holes within those patches are not allowed!
Be careful with the edge as well! Especially textured edges can look soft very quickly. Bloodmark only allows for hard textured edges though, so try to avoid having any area blend into the base coat like Sooty would.
This marking was inspired by the bloodmark coloration on horses, feel free to take them as inspiration if you have troubles designing your beast!
