There are no "specific" colors bro! The screen used colors were never taken under natural lighting so there are a lot of options since the color varies from picture to picture. Even the armor looks different under fluorescent lights and different again in the movie.

As for the skin -the base tone is anywhere from a pale white color to a yellowish white. The next tone I've seen anywhere between brown and orange. Spots range from black to brown, so you see there really is no cookie-cutter color scheme with perfect pre-selected choices. Its all dependant on what YOU think looks good.

Which brings up a very good point. You really need to decide if it's on display under flourescents, blue light (Mimiced natural), will be worn and seen in the dark, etc. Lighting plays a huge role and needs to be taken into consideration during the color selection process. If you go to Home Depot, they have a light box set up that mimics different lighting conditions. Next time you're in there, check it out. Just grab any color swatch and flip through the options. You'll better understand. Then, you can go in with any color chart and see what looks right in whatever conditions you plan on displaying your project. Anywho, that's my two cents...

thanks guys,i mean yeah i know there is no rule of thumb as such and i have noticed the colours are somewhat overcompensated in the movie so they show up better in dark,i was just looking for maybe a brand and a few base colours.but yeah i noticed all kinds of crazy greens and stuff in the armor in daylight.cheers
