Zebra is a white marking that covers between 25%-100% of your dragon, where stripes are ‘erased’ to allow the base to show through. You should also erase the snout to allow the base scales to show through. The tail may have an erased stripe along the top that goes along the bone. You may add a slightly transparent border around the marking–the border will always be darker than the main marking. When in doubt, reference a real zebra! This marking may be any color from the light element color palette. Additionally, it may display a gradient between two of these colors.
It should have a solid edge. You may have the marking as a whole fade into the scales.
Here are a few more examples of what you can do!
Zebra will always be from the light color scheme unless it is affected by color modifiers or charged. It may be affected by color modifiers. If you give Zebra a border, it will be darker than zebra and lighter than the base color. If this border is tinted, it will be brown, orange, yellow, or a similar color to the marking. The border will always be darker than the marking itself. The main marking of zebra will be at full opacity, but you can erase the edges into a gradient. These gradients will not create holes, and there will be a clear chunk that is still at full opacity. In these examples, the base is dark gray, and the Zebra marking is the white stripes.

Here are some examples of what NOT to do with Zebra.
All of the stripes are blurry. Zebra will always be solid.
The border is blurry. Zebra will always be solid.
These stripes are black. Zebra is a light-colored marking, not black!
It is a Top Layer marking, so it will always appear on top of all other markings.
Effect on Modifiers & Physical Traits
It may affect modifiers, skin, nails, ears, and similar things where it touches. It can also appear on modifiers that are not touching the marking. On the wings, the stripes will always go from the arm to the bottom of the wing. It will never resemble barred.
Charged Zebra may use any colors for the marking, gradient, and border.
