"Line Drawing: The Embrace"

I have to admit I've cheated on this drawing. First off I scanned one of the illustrations in Wilkinson's _Reading Egyptian Art_ used to convey the hieroglyph "embrace", of Ramesses III and Ptah-Tatenen from the tomb of Amenherkhepeshef. I printed it, and placed it underneath my paper and traced. Of course, I made a few changes. Then I scanned my attempt and made many digital fixes. Cheated ALL the way! (The ancients, had they the technology, would have done so too!)

Now how shall I color it?
