PINTO


Uncommon By Yamashta-daok465 by Ulfrheim

(Pn active) (PN dominant)


Uncommonb By Yamashta-daok460 by Ulfrheim Pinto - A solid white layer that appears on top of the entire Felvarg. Genetically speaking, Pinto, alike piebald, covers the entire body, but there are breaks and/or holes in the white layer that reflect the rest of the geno below. These breaks may be large or small, and have no set pattern, meaning it is up to the owner to decide how the base and markings under are revealed.

RULES


THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim Pinto MUST be an obvious shade of white, colors that appear too cream or grey will be sent to corrections.

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim Pinto (the white area), must have at least 30% coverage on the Felvarg. (Maximum 70% coverage.)

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim Pinto can consist of large and small spots but cannot replicate any other markings at a glance.

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim The erased holes of pinto should not have flecks of white within them. Small areas of pinto may be erased in the remaining coverage, but it should not create spots outside of its general coverage. Please refer to the images below for an example.

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim If your Pinto is visible on flesh areas (Lip/Nose/Paws/Eyes/Inner Ear), then you may add a subtle pink tint. It must be subtle and anything that seems to drastic will be sent to corrections.

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim While pinto is a solid marking you can use a soft brush like we have in the examples below.

**NOTE If skew is present with pinto, pinto shows ABOVE Skew and it now forces skew to be black.

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim When pinto touches the flesh areas of a Felvarg and gives it the pink tint, then the actual flesh being touched (nose, lips, paws, eyes), must also turn pink. For example, the nose and gums should be pink if the muzzle has the soft pink tint. 

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim  If affected by Reversal, then Pinto does not need to show in the required red range and may display with exterior spots rather than the usual internal holes.

PINTO GUIDELINES


:bulletred: - The red range shown above indicates where pinto (the white) should always be present in some way. Below we will show good and bad examples of pinto and how to use the marking correctly.
Bullet; Blue - Pinto can be placed anywhere however it must in its minimal form reveal 30% of the markings below it. (Maximum 70%)

Ranges by TheNook

THIS ICON IS NOT FREE by Ulfrheim Below is a good example of pinto. As you can see the pinto (white) is present in the red range somewhere, but the coverage of the Felvarg is still meeting 30+% however no more than 70%.

A good example of this is shown below. Note how the pink tint around the muzzle is accompanied by pink flesh:

BAD EXAMPLES OF PINTO

In the first image you can see how the pinto (white) is present in the required red range somewhere however it does not meet the 30% required coverage. Pinto should always be scattered and look unplanned. Its important to remember to place pinto in the red range as well. In the final bad example pinto is not only missing the red required range.
