The Fearsome Maugua from The Last of the Mohicans
I loved this film. Here the local colors are Thalo green (also predominate in background) and Red Oxide (flesh). The other natives in the background are color derivatives from Maugua, maybe a little more thalo to dilute the red oxide or tinted with a little more titanium white. Took a little more time to mix a more harmonized color pallette on the right.
Pretty quick; maybe 30 mins. Unfortunately, the darks scanned as black; there is no true "black" in this picture. The darkest flesh tones are burnt umber + thalo green + maybe a touch of red oxide.
