Tildas of a different colour

I have been tossing the idea around in my head to get away from the typical blonde/fair skinned Tilda & finally sat down to attempt some Tildas with darker skin!!! I hope I've done her justice - I think she is pretty dang cute!!! I have NEVER seen her coloured with dark skin - so I hope I'm not "stepping on any toes" or offending anyone! Anyways, here are 2 of them I did this weekend.
I coloured this one with E11, E13, and E18 Copic markers to get the darker skin & her hair is coloured with N9. I can't get over how dang cute she is with dark skin and dark hair!!!!

I tried this one with even darker skin - I used E25 & E27 and N9 for her hair. I made this one in our school uniform colours so I could give it to our principal as a thank you at the end of the year. This Tilda looks so much like one of our students from Sudan - so beautiful!!!

What do you all think?? Be honest & I hope I didn't offend anyone with these!!

Have you seen anyone else colouring her with darker skin? If so, let me know where, I'd love to check it out!!!

Thanks for looking!!!

I've considered doing just this myself, but didn't have the right colors. I think you did a wonderful job! I especially love the first one.
