Character Creation - COLOR HELPFollow

I was wondering if anyone would be so kind as to take a bit of time out to name the color with its corresponding number for HAIR, SKIN and EYES for the Wildwood Elezen, Duskwight Elezen, Midland Hyur and Highland Hyur.

I'm asking this because of my color-blindness (protanopia) and don't want to create a character that may end up having an odd purple hair and green skin (for example).

Letting me know some good color combinations (by numbers) would be great.

Thank you so much in advance.

the default colors should be fine, though if you want something a bit more custom then you should be specific in what you want?

Thanks for the reply, PerrinofSylph.
I haven't a clue if any of the skin tones are odd (like green/blue/etc) or what the hair colors are even close to.
But I'm considering creating an Elezen and would like a light Mediterranean type "olive" skin tone and a complimentary hair color (/highlights).

Several times now I've created characters only to log in and have the chosen colors look differently to me due to the environment playing "tricks" with my vision. If I could have a definitive color (hair & body), I'd feel much more comfortable and less afraid of having possibly created a freakishly colored person!

Thanks again.

I feel for you.. I too have red-green color blindness and it definitely makes things annoying to say the least. I'm still not 100% sure my characters hair is blue lol.. :P I should have asked for some help too but i always hide it :/ My work doesn't even know because im afraid of getting fired and i work with ink cartridges all day. GG
Anyway i hope you get the information your looking for!

Why is that? I'm assuming that MookaChooka knows what colours are, and that the only problem (s)he has is that (s)he can't differ between some colours. Instead of throwing out numbers I decided to show what numbers are what colour.

I really don't understand how I could miss the point.

Took a look at the male Elezen, and couldn't see any olive-ish colors for skin.

However, if you're looking for a woodsy looking character, a combination of the following colors should be able to make something that's at least close to what you're looking for.

Skin: 2,3,6,7,10,11 (Sorry, not sure what the actual color names are, but on a darkness scale of 1-4, they're all 2-3.)

Hair:
5- Silvery
10- Reddish Brown
11- Brown with a lighter hint of red
12- Brown
24- Orangey lighter brown
28- Black
30- Light, silvery blonde

Edit: Looks like the numbers/colors are the same for the female Wildwoods, too.

I have the same problem. I played on a green Roegedyn for about a week before my wife asked why I had made a green character.

"Are you trying to look like the Hulk?"

"No."

"Then why did you make him green?"

"I didn't ma- oh fluckinsheet."

I hope the other posters have helped you color by number. Goodluck sir.
