Designing: Striping




Bullet; White Striping resembles the stripes found on tigers (not zebras). It can be hard-edged or soft-edged.
Bullet; White In your ketucari's genotype, striping is denoted by the letters "nSp" (heterozygous) or "SpSp" (homozygous).
Bullet; White In its heterozygous form, striping has a pass rate of 30%. Homozygous striping has a 55% pass rate.


Striping must be a darker color of your chosen base, with a minor deviation in hue. It can also be a fully desaturated color of the base, as long as it is darker. Striping may be pure black.

These colors would be acceptable for this base color. They are either a darker version of the base, or a darker and desaturated version of the base. The last color on the right shows a minor deviation in hue, and is slightly more yellow than the base itself. Notice that this small change is not overbearing.

These colors would be unacceptable for striping. They are either lighter than the base coat or have too drastic a hue shift.


Since it can appear anywhere on the body, there is no range for striping. It must be immediately noticeable in the design and be distinguishable from markings such as vent and lace those genes appear in the same ketucari.

Striping vs. Similar Markings

Be careful that  Striping doesn't too closely resemble lacing or marbling.

Interaction with Other Markings

Bullet; White All markings can be layered under or over striping.
Bullet; White Striping can be influenced by infernovapor, and segment.


Here are some small accents you can add to your designs to make them more unique!

Bullet; White Striping may have a subtle gradient and fade into the base coat like below:
