Well, I do both traditional and digital coloring - but if I do traditional - then it's purely traditional, if it's digital - it's purely digital, I don't mix digital and traditional coloring in one work.
Ballerina... she's not actually a ballerina - but I can' tell you what happened to her anyway since it'd be a spoiler XD I wish people could imagine how hard it is to me not to write spoilers XD
Yep! Purple and gray! Drawing clouds took pretty much time but I thought that clouds would be a better solution than just gray sky. Also I wanted to make upper part a bit darker but I've lost my medium soft black pencil somewhere ^^ So my gray pencil is a bit lighter, and my new black pencil is too soft (now I think I know what you mean by super-soft pencils... it's like... Maybeline kajal XD but good for blending)... anyway I'm happy with result.
