I took this from my phone while I was watching AC Blu-ray making of the film. Sadly, there's just 2 second shot of the Engineer extras.
As you can see, their skin is more pinkish and their eyes have lighter sclera (probably because they had no eye lenses unlike the engineer actors from Prometheus who had) but are bald and have a much higher nasal bone like LV-223 Engineers. They also wore tunics, hoods and sandals.
From what I've heard (I just heard), these are the original Engineers and the LV-223 Engineers could possibly be genetically enhanced servants.
Yes, the long vein is black, maybe because its connected with the pressure suit (my assumption).
But if I'm not mistaken, some of these other veins look dark red or blue (I don't have the best eyesight).
The scene with the last Engineer was shot in dark room.
I think it has something to do with colour grading that was done in post.
The same thing with the eyes. In the film, they look very black, but they actually have lighter sclera, not 100% black.

Or they just have black veins.
I believe the Thanos skin tone differences can be explained by the dimmer switch he installed next to his galactic throne and the LED lights he installed in the vault where he keeps his glove.
And the Engineers on LV-223 were called "sentient" beings in the Weyland-Yutani Report. Just saying.
I think there is a interesting Story to be Told regarding the LV-223 Engineers and Planet 4 ones for sure.
I think the comment RS made regarding how the Planet 4 Engineers are the Original Engineers, the comments regarding the Hall of Heads being Superior Beings, Apostles and Wise Men and indeed Ridley Scotts comments regarding the Engineers being Genetic Gardeners and how the LV-223 Engineers are FALLEN.
Certainly means there is some interesting not explored BACK-STORY at play.
Is what that Story is a Mirror of what we see with Davids Arc and Story?
