Any Asians here? I want to ask a question about Asians and skin color.

I just realised - I'm Asian - my national football team just played and lost the Asian cup final against Japan.

Now what was the question again?

This is being re-posted for Goldman. Hey Goldman, listen up, this is the last time I'm going to explain this to you: the numbers Cicerone posted refer to this color palette (move down the page to see it): http://www.kryolan.com/en/index.php?cid=104&mnu=32&id=142&pageid=1

The first 2 colors are what would be used by a makeup artist at a TV studio if Cicerone appeared in front of cameras in wintertime, the other 2 might be used in summertime, or if he just spends a long time in the sun. Geography has nothing to do with it - so please stop asking him if he's from Vietnam!

And if that doesn't finally clear it up for you - use NUMBERS, not COUNTRIES - here's 3 more examples:

a. The people referred to as "Caucasians" in the US / UK (usually 1, 2, or even 0 in wintertime, turning into 18, 19, or 20 when deeply tanned) are NOT the same as what the rest of Europe, including Russia, calls "people of the Caucasus" (Chechnya, Ingushetia, etc).
b. New Zealand is an island in the Pacific, but the inhabitants are NOT called "Pacific Islanders".
c. Australia is also in the Pacific, but it's a separate continent - not part of the larger continent, Eurasia. Australians are not Asians.

To sum up: pick a color palette (the one I linked is best) and stick to its numbers. People don't change color when they travel!

@hingehead,
Since the US is a member of the Asia-Pacific Forum, by your geographic logic Americans are Asians, too! You better read the rest of the thread Smile

@hingehead,
Hi-my apologizes for such a late reply.

My question is, I described these people as having beige skin:

I have been told it's acceptable to say they have beige skin, since that's a term Asians use. Is it offensive to describe their skin as orange?

Hey guys, stop judging the person who asked the question, they probably just wanted to know the correct term to describe asian's skin colour. Maybe they were planning characters for a story and wanted to know what to put under their asian character for skin colour, that's how I found this. So just stop judging

@High Seas,
I'll add one more comment; Asians include those people living in Japan called Ainus. They are Caucasian in skin color, but native to Japan, and are Asian by definition.

Paragon, you might note that this thread was dead for a year, until you posted. You obviously know nothing about JGoldman, the original poster. He is/was a notorious internet flake/troll. This was one of a million inane questions he asked for "research" on a comic he was allegedly creating, which he has been "writing" for something like ten years now. Be thankful you haven't yet run across the topic about how he should draw Asian eyes for anthropomorphic street-fighting cat and dog gangs. Don't even ask. He seems to have been booted off this group. Again. Just like all the other internet groups that booted him.

And know, he did want to draw "Asian" cats and dogs with bright orange skin color. It took us months to convince him that orange is not a color humans or dogs come in.
