A lot of people who work traditionally like that make high quality copies of their images just in case. And I understand your predicament completely. I worked straight out of high school for over two years before I had enough money to apply and art for a portfolio. Hang in there! You do great work. C:
Hope Luck Kick in Soon! Til then here my little color advice (though I've only color digitally >3>)
Since you're coloring this in the mood of the night, you have to think of the cool colors.
Even grey can be a cool color if used right. As for the water, use the same color you used for the night sky and form the ripples where the moon light is hitting (google sea or lake at night for reference).
Plants can be dark blue-ish green.
For your skin predicament, maybe working on the background first would help make it feel cool and night-like.
Highlights being the bright blue color.
