This creates a solid white marking, normally situated over the rump, that has medium-sized holes erased into it. The edges may be textured, as long as the main marking is opaque and has solid holes. The holes allow other markings to show through. It does not have to be a contiguous shape. The entirety of the marking should have holes. It is a Top Layer Marking.
The edges may be textured, as long as the main marking is opaque and has solid holes. Here are three examples of acceptable appaloosa textures:
Here are examples of what NOT to do with Appaloosa:
Appaloosa will always be white. It can be affected by color modifiers, but it will still be slightly transparent.
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.
Charged Appaloosa may have large areas of white along with large holes. This creates an effect similar to the Piebald gene of dogs. There should still be at least a few holes in the marking.
