Saimaa (Rare Markings)



Saimaa adds lighter colored, hard-edged rings on the beasts’ body.
These rings will be perfectly circular only very rarely and have, at most, an oval shape. Most of the time they are rather iregular though, forming triangles for example or having a lot of bumps and dents.
Neither does the thickness of the rings have to stay the same. Having areas in which the ring is thicker while being thinner in others is a-okay.
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 Saimaa Seals, feel free to take them as inspiration if you have troubles designing your beast!

Quick Facts Guide



Saimaa is relevant to and will always be lighter than the base coat color of the beast.
Alternatively, Saimaa 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.
