seriously?? your going to argue a "light toned flesh" be called "peach"??????
I think the term "Flesh" is appropriate when talking about skin and or skin pigment.
The thing is, skin pigment (melanin) is a very, very dark brown color. The amount of it present in your skin sets your overall skin tone.
And seriously, yes, assuming light-colored, pinkish skin from European genetic stock is some sort of standard and thus the default color for flesh is just wrong. We're becoming a global society, folks, no reason we can't consciously cast off our outdated eccentricities.
Whether "peach" is the correct color name could be up for debate. But it gets the message across, has been used by Crayola for decades so is a strong candidate.
I really don't have a dog in this fight. If you guys think I should change the flesh MMDB entries I can fairly easily.
Yes, I think you should. How do you want to present yourself to the global community that accesses your site?
Being a fan of the blanks, I do have a peach blank I pieced together last year or so. The pieces came from the same production time frame, so the colors match just fine, at least as well as any production white blank AA/DST has kicked out.
