Crescent-shaped marking that follows the edges of feathers and can be any natural color.
In dominant form, Crescents (CsCs) can double-up for denser, more concetrated coverage.
Dominant Crescent Examples
Dominant & Recessive Crescent cont.
Below are two examples of each type of presentation.
Take note that these are just general appearances– please refer to the next tab to view more examples & guidelines on how Crescents can be presented on your stryx design.
Recessive Crescents (nCs) appears in rows, each row having one layer of crescents.
Dominant Crescent (CsCs) can have two or three layers of Crescents per row.
- Crescents can appear anywhere within the allowed coverage range, and also do not have to cover the entire range available.
Shape & Coverage cont.
Crescents can be fairly dense and lacey. The first import here is a good example of a more arrow shaped crescent!
There can be crescents more minimal in coverage and less dense, so long as the crescents themselves are not too large.
Appearing in Patches
Crescent can appear in patches around the stryx’s body.
Edges, Blending & Texture
Crescents & Using Fade-Erase
Crescents can fade-erase.
Meaning, the marking can steadily and smoothly “disappear” out into the rest of the design using a very soft erase technique.
Colors & Interaction
Crescents may be any natural color.
While crescents can be soft-erased for smoother transitions, the marking as a whole should feature only one color.
Things to Avoid
- Crescents cannot travel into the wings or tail in a way that resembles Barring.
- Crescents should not be too small, as to resemble Flecks or Frost.
