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!

Quick Facts Guide
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)!
Tar must have a soft edge.
Combinations with other markings
Tar has no distinct minimum range, but must be present in a noticeable way on the beast.
Feel free to search for this marking in our CaveSpeaker gallery to get some inspiration or a better grasp of the marking.
However, be careful of old designs as they might be illegal by now due to previous rule changes!
Please do not just copy existing designs either, as those are the property of their designer!
