Highway (Common Markings)

Highway

BigDivider

Highway is a marking that adds either multiple patches, a blanket, or a stripe along the back of the beast. All those options must be soft-edged and contain a patch or stripe of lighter color inside of them.
The lighter stripes may vary in thickness and do not have to strictly follow the direction of the underlying darker patch / stripe. Be careful not to create any too drastic swirls and shapes though, as it should still look natural!
This marking was inspired by the highway morph found in ball python snakes, feel free to take them as inspiration if you have troubles designing your beast!
