Gazelle (Uncommon Markings)



Gazelle is a marking that adds a hard-edged, lighter colored patch of color on the underside of the beast and a hard-edged, darker colored stripe bordering the top of this patch.
This marking cannot have any holes or breaks and the stripe must always be on the upper edge, without any space in between them, of the lighter colored part. It cannot show somewhere within it like the stripe in Garter nor be around the feet while the patch is coloring the area above it.
The color of the large patch 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 the Thomsons Gazelle and Springbuck, feel free to take them as inspiration if you have troubles designing your beast!

Large patch
The large patch beneath the stripe is relevant to and will always be lighter than the base coat color of the beast.
Alternatively, the circular patches may be white as well, no matter the base coat color. This includes using pure white (HEX: #FFFFFF, RGB: rgb(255,255,255)) as well as slightly off-white colors as long as they are still recognizable as white, look natural and are not overly yellow or blue.
