I wanted the Shades from my book to be otherworldly looking but have a lot of color. Humans granted a spark of the Primordial Shadow itself are going to look, well... Shadowy? Trying to render Numenarch with this thought in mind yielded a strange result. Not super happy with it because I know what everyone will likely think when they see it.
I think I'll try painting a shade that isn't Numenarch.
