Jaundice (build up of bilirubin - a waste product normally excreted by the liver) can make a person appear yellow.

Does this also make a person tired?

People with chronic liver problems can be fatigued, yes. They may also feel tired because of other related problems or the initial cause of the liver problem itself.

Sometimes, depending on the severity.
Yellowish complexion, abdominal pain & swelling, vomiting, fatigue and disorientation whilst awake.

What do you mean by swelling? Swelling in the liver?

Yes. Jaundice, ascites, cachexia, bruising, prominent blood vessels, etc, etc. The physical signs of liver disease are myriad. There can be a rather distinctive smell too.

Obviously this is speaking in general and will depend on the individual's history, but liver disease can affect physical appearance yes.
