For a horse to be considered "Premium" The must first collect a certain number of points using this system.
Points will be totaled and kept on a kaaring image, in a journal, or on the horse's reference sheet.
Colored reference picture: 1 point
All uncolored art: .5 points
Colored headshots & partial images: 1 point
Colored full body images with simple or no background: 1 point
This must be a FULL body image. If part of a foot or the tail is cut off this is fine though.
Training Images: +1 points
Add 1 point to the total. So a training headshot image is 1 point +1 point.
If an image is shaded add an extra point to the total.
Colored full body images with backgorund: 2 points
Full body means that more of the body must be shown than the part hiding. So full body shows atleast 2/3 of the horse, depending on the angle drawn. With painted background we refer to an actual background created by the artist him-/herself, such as showing horse in the paddock, on riding arena etc.
