So I've asked on FR and FV for help.. But no one seems willing :C
I hope this is okay for me to ask here. If not, let me know and I'll delete it ASAP.

I'm a bit stuck on a design for a character of mine. I've already been actively using and RPing with her on WoW.. But I never really gave her actual design much thought other than what her in game model is. Eventually, I'd like to start drawing her and commissioning art of her and her partner.. But I can't really do that until I settle on her design.
For those of you who are confused. She's a Tauren. The best race.

I'm hoping that some of you would be willing to assist me with her design a bit.. More specifically where her spots are supposed to go and look like! She's a brown and white Tauren. Brown as the base fur and the white as her spots. Brown takes up the majority of her body. I suppose the only place I'd avoid keeping spots is around her face area. I'd prefer it kept more to the body, arms , legs and tail. The more people that throw ideas out there, the better!

I doodled up a super quick (and super crappy LMAO) Tauren Reff sheet that is free for you guys to use if you want to help me out. I don't want anyone spending a ton of time by actually drawing a character, so I threw this together for people to just slap color on. Hence why it looks so bad LOL
Feel free to ignore the color blobs that don't involve her spots or base fur. Those are just for my future reference.

Please let me know if there is anything you'd like for your assistance. I've got stuff on FR and of course Gold/pets on WoW.

Those are cool. Thanks Tarn.
:3
I usually do just fine with drawing them. But this was just a super fast doodle in hopes to give people something to color in if they wanted to help me figure out where the spots should go on her design ;P

I'd definitely check out some brown Holstein/Karan Swiss/Guernsey cows for reference, it sounds like exactly the coat pattern you're wanting to create. Here are a few examples:

(^ I personally really like the darker face of this one)

The fun part is that you can literally create just about whatever you want as far as the brown/white distribution is!
