Design Guides: Ground Rules



Below, you will find all the guides you will need to design your ketucari. However, there are a few basic ground rules you should be aware of that will apply to every design.

 Do not try to abuse marking ranges to create a pseudo-version of colors/markings your ketucari does not have.

 The base coat should always be immediately recognizable, as should markings. The only exception is if the ketucari has piebald or melanistic pastel covering their markings.
 
Lineart should always be darker than what's under it. The only exception is if the Lineart Itself is being used to represent Filigree.

Admins reserve the right to clarify the design guides at any time, especially if there is a pending design that makes us aware of loopholes or badly worded guidelines.

As a result of guide updates, ketucari with ID numbers below 1540 may not apply as accurate examples for gene expression.
