Ching-Chou Kuik Color challenge

Can I just say I had a blast coloring this up. I had thought about it all day how I wanted to try and make it different from what I had seen so far. Also, the way the Kimono sets, I felt it needed a seductive edge. That is what directed my deep tones choice in colors. I really tried to add depth and make her have a warm come hither feel. Then adding the moths in lighter tones to really enhance the background. I hope you enjoy her as much as I did coloring her up! She's now framed and ready to hang with my favorites!

Ive enterd her into a contest at:
The image is a free image called Green Goth Maiden By: Ching-Chou Kuik offered just for this challenge you can find info for it

I have colored her up in copics:
Hair: Blue, B39, B27, B93, Teal: BG78, BG75, BG72, Purples: V17, V15, V12, V25, BV34.
I then went in with W7, W5 and W4 to darken up any areas I really felt weren't deep enough. When I went into this I envisioned all the colors being deep and dark with hues of black being the blending factor through out.
Robe: BG78, BG75, BG72 C9, C7, C5, C3, B56, RV25. Again using the W colors to darken and shade.
Skin is : E000, E00, E11, R30, E04
Moths are: RV69, G24, YG61, G12, YG11, G82
Thank you so much for pooping in and checking out the details! I hope to see lots more of you enter!
