Emmy Awards - OK. yeah I made that up

I colored up this beautiful image just for fun. Her name is Katniss on Fire, but I kept seeing the gown in pink, so bank the fires and turn on the award ceremony.  The Emmy's are tonight, and although I don't really watch them, I do enjoy watching the gowns. I think she would fit in perfectly at the Emmy's.

I colored her skin tones in YR000,00, E11 with a touch of RV000on her cheeks. Her eyes are B91, 93, 95. Her hair I started with E23, and worked my way through the E2x series.  And her gown....
... Her gown was colored up with R81, 83, 85, 89.  I did her lips in the first three colors as well. Once I was done I cut her out. I do this a lot, but WOW... she was a tough one. I edged her in black.  So..... then I had a problem. While I had been edging her I apparently had gotten some on my fingers and then touched a few places. UGH. The skin was the worst. I tried to get rid of it, and it smeared. OMG... So I lightened it as best as I could and then used the pink to draw little bands on her arms and neck. Although there were only two spots (one on neck and one on her arm) that were bad, she needed a bit of balance. So, I put them in several places and then outlined them with a 0.03 multiliner and added a bit of loopy things on the bottom. Now she has on her jewels.

Speaking of jewels... the sparkly bling on here is all clear. Yep - clear. The three centers to the black flowers, and the surrounding bling on the black Nestie were colored using the R85 after they were applied. That way it matches perfectly!
