In GIMP (and maybe any other bitmap editor)

Use the Colourize Dialog (COLOURS:COLOURIZE)

Hue -        23
Saturation -  50
Lightness - Negative 56

Do NOT forget, when doing the limps (I mean LIMBS, durn it… sorry, my spelling sucks cuz of missing fingers), to make the palms and foot soles LIGHTER.  I did this by layering and erasing my new texture over the old one.

Meet Shahana!  Dialed in on Genesis with the ethnic morphs and V5 morphs… I used Wsupatoi’s Trish texture to get this one…

By the way… how is it we don’t have a TEXTURING/Shader/Surfacing board?

Looking good! Thanks for that starting point for the colors. I’ll have to give that a shot one of these days.

Actually, depending on skin tones, this will not be a true statement. Darker skin tones, more likely, lighter not so much.

M3dia, not that I’ve done extensive research, but I think you’re correct.
