I am not the artist who coloured this (obviously). However if you were to be so kind I will try to share what little knowledge I may have on the subject. So in image four the artist mapped out the midtones with orangish brown as well as shadows with the third palette color. On the face midtones correlate wrather well with blood flow. This is why the cheeks and the nose are slightly darker even though they are actually closer to the light. This is also why people with farer skin have a noticeable redness around these areas when angered, aroused, etc. Now however we are not just talking about the face she also added midtones and shadows around the clothes and the neck. The neck is darker since isnt as close to the light. This makes its main color the orange and the cast shadow the dark brown as well as the dip in your neck that exact same e dark brown color. And with the straps of the clothing its just showing where your shoulders dip in and it giving them a rounded form since they are shaped like a ball. Now in the fifth image she blends the colors together giving them a more gradual change from light to dark. She then puts in the lips which are slightly smaller on one side since this is a 3/4th picture. She maps the highlights. Highlights usually happen where the parts of the body noticeably sticks out, such as the nose, or where there is a lot of moisture, such as the mouth. However, the affect of a highlight on the mouth may be played down depending on the sex of the character. This also shows where the light is being cast which is the upper-left side of this picture.

I think a lot of it is about how compatible your coloring style is with your art style. It looks like you did the technique well, it just doesn't exactly fit your style quite right. I'm not an expert on coloring or anything though, I really suck at it.
