Brindle can be lighter or darker than your ketucari's base coat. It must be in the same color range as your base color, and may have a minor deviation in hue.

Brindle vs. Striping

Testbutton by WerewolfStripclub
Brindle should not too closely resemble striping. Notice how the banding caused by brindle is thinner and more densely packed together. Striping produces thicker lines that are less closely concentrated. Brindle looks more like dripping paint than regular striping. Brindle should always drip down along the body.

Woodgrain is a unique interaction that Brindle and Marble have together, where they effectively fuse into one marking. Woodgrain may be lighter or darker than the base coat. It may also have a subtle gradient or fade out on certain parts of the body (see Accents). What makes it different from both Marble and Brindle is it should resemble woodgrain and the patterns of tree rings. It's a thin, loopy and swirly marking.
It may also be used to create general "whispy" patterns.
