can't tell because we don't know the original person

YOU say that you are happy with this shot - no one can tell because no one knows the original person. Maybe the skin tone on the photograph on the shot is faithful, or maybe not.

For my personal taste it is too reddish, but again if the original model is too reddish then that's truthful.

I see you continue to apparently NOT want to do a WB preset, even though it's very easy:

  • press and hold the WB button

  • turn the back wheel until the WB icon shows "PRE" on the top LCD

  • let go of the WB button and press it again, holding for about 2 seconds

  • "PrE" will blink on the top LCD

  • aim at a suitable surface (white, or better a neutral gray card), press the shutter

If you refuse to do this and stick to 4800K then it's an ARTISTIC choice, which likely WILL often NOT give you the colours you saw. Which is fine, because on paintings also, artistic choices are made for the colours.

Good luck
