Depends on how you'd prefer to colour it:

- You could set the sketch layer to Multiply, then colour underneath the sketch on a new layer,
- Or you can try making a new layer on top of the Sketch, set the layer to Color, Overlay or Soft Light, and try painting on top of the sketch.

I wouldnt worry so much about the bent index finger as I would about the ringfinger or dislocated thumb

Well, seeing as you're going for a lineless approach (at least, that's what it looks like), you should probably elaborate on Warbrain's answer. Make a new layer above your sketch, and lower your sketch's opacity, then trace the lines (it doesnt have to be a really refined sketch), block in your colors, and paint from there.
While you're at it, you can use your hands or stock photos to get the anatomy down. Your painting may be great but if the anatomy is off (or vice versa) then the result will be unpleasing. :)

i was using my hand as a refrence but i was just in class when i drew the image and teachers are not always accepting when u tell em that your just going to sketch instead of learning the course she had plan to teach and i just decided to point the way i had em draw t begin with on my profile i have theses drawing in color and black and white seeing as how the painting or coloring seems decent as see how no one is giving me any negative feed back towards it i finished this one like at 5 am tonight the coloring at least
