Tar (Common Markings)

Tar

BigDivider

Tar marking adds a soft, darker gradient on the beasts’ legs. It is very similar to Siamese and, if both markings are present in the phenotype, does not have to be shown in the design.
The marking may be blended into the coat color in a way that makes the edge not clearly visible and the transition not discernable anymore, just like Dust.
All gradients on the feet must be symmetrical and around the same height; having different coverages for each leg is not allowed!

Colors

Tar is relevant to the design and will always be darker than the picked reference color.
 
If the design has Free White and it was chosen as a relevant color for Tar, Tar may only have grayscale colors. It cannot be used to add entirely different colors to your beast (e.g. blue-ish white color on a beast with Earth coat color)!
