Glossy (Uncommon Markings)



Glossy is a marking that adds up to two (2) patches of a bluish-gray color.
While there is no size restriction on how big or small those patches may be, they should not cover the entire beast but still be clearly present in some way on the design.
Be careful when coloring your beasts’ leg with Glossy! Every time there is a clear break between two (2) or more areas and they are not touching anymore they count as their own patch. When coloring the legs without connecting them (e.g. by adding color on the stomach) they will count as four (4) different patches and therefore be over the limit of two (2).
