Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm working on a figure who has a lot of flab. I want a pale and ill skin colour but without going too white or pink. Can anyone help with (tried and tested) colour mixes or any links to visual references?
Thanks in advance!
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Well, there is the traditional link to the CMON article on ethnic skintones (*click!*), which should be quite helpful. I've linked to page 3 (of 3), which features a scheme for albino skin-tones, which should be nicely pale for you.
Otherwise, while I haven't tried this, pale skin can work well with bluey/purple shading, even if it's just a matter of adding a tiny bit of blue to every shade you use. This should also make it look like it is dead/dying, which could be quite nice on a bloated and unhealthy individual.
I often find that my marine skin-tones often come out quite pale (*link*), which I get by layering:
-Dark Flesh/Elf Flesh
-Bleached Bone/Skull White
Anyway, hopefully one of those might be helpful for you
Good luck mate.
