Yes, these are the actual colors used in the novels/tv series.
I honestly found it very hard to adapt the design to my art style. See, though I may draw an anime or manga character from time to time, my artwork falls distinctively under comics. Actually, manga did have a profound influence on my earlier artwork and it did a lot to teach me some of techniques I apply today.

For a comparison, here is a screenshot from one of the animated adaptations.

The character herself comes from the series Banner of the Stars, it's an animated adaptation of a group of science fiction novels by the same name. If you are interested in the series, it is definitely something I would recommend.

Thank you for the nice feedback! :)

It's not that long of a series on it's own, but it's part of a larger continuity which corresponds to the novels. You have the prequel, Crest of the Stars and then you have Banner of the Stars parts I, II, and III, with part IV entering production.

Overall it's an excellent series to get into :D

Yeah, it is an older style. Here is a comparison between the anime series, the character shown is Lafiel:
Crest of the Stars(1999),

Banner of the Stars(2000),

Banner of the Stars II(2001),

Banner of the Stars III(2005),

I like your style, the nose is particularly cute. Her head is a little tall but I think the body proportions are good. The colors are really nice as well, soft, but still eye catching and vibrant. The clothing design is really nice too, the folds are well done. All in all this is a pretty sketch, keep up the nice work. <3
