Pastels and Super Pastels in combos

Let us continue from yesterday by touching on a similar topic, one which I actually intended to combine, but decdiee against to allow for more subject matter. 

Pastels and Super Pastels in Combinations. 

Now in this case, I only took out the Pastel and Super Pastel Lessers. These guys are tougher than just Pastels because the Lesser element of the combination allows for blushing like crazy and a very light over all color to begin with.   

Take a look at these guys. 
You, being an avid blog reader, know these two from previous pictures. 

But have you seen them together?


Now you have. 

The one on the left is the Pastel Lesser, which I recall more people saying that they liked, and the one on the right is the Super Pastel Lesser. 

Now let us touch on the overall color. 
The Pastel Lesser is a brighter animal overall due to it's contrast. There is more dramatic black to yellow, and therefore appealing to most people.

The Super Pastel Lesser is a bright animal, but has lighter tones of mauve to purple, with the occasional grey tone, but no black anymore. It loosk more "washed out" as some would say. 
Does this make it ugly? NOT A CHANCE.


Here is a closer picture of the two. You can see that the Super Pastel basically washes the black into brightness, while the Pastel keeps it there in the pattern. The blushing in the Super is again, much more pronounced, and the over all color is brighter, almost hypo (ghost-like).



And the head colors? 

Well, same as any Super Pastel. 

White with the X. Can you see it above? 
Yep! There it is. It's there in all Super Pastels. 

And of course, what is a comparison blog with out a comparison shot?

Here we have the Pastel Lesser's head shot. The white section is there, but it is not white, nor is the cross defined. Compared to a normal pastel, however, this animal has the lighter head, so be aware that combinations of morphs, especially those with lighter tendancies may render the "white head rule" defunct. 

Examples are Fires, Vanillas, etc...


So there you go, my friends. 

I hope you enjoyed this series on Super Pastels and Pastels. 

I had a fun time shooting it. 

I will do it again real soon, I promise.

Have a great day!
