Base by Mariii
I changed the gender, skin tone and hair (to match the new skin tone).

I also can't quite make out what the little things on her belt are supposed to be. Like, is it jewellery or sparkles or what?

Soooooo. pixel backgrounds. Or, yanno, backgrounds in general, lets not kid ourselves. Help? Thoughts comments questions? It's supposed to be a second storey window/walkway thigh with a walled garden behind and then the sky.

I know that I still need to add the shadow from the fence and the doll :)

I'm pretty sure they're jewels, or maybe the outfit is just really sparkly?
I really like your version, but they look so angry in comparison to the original, I think. :)

I think you've captured the sparkles accurately. I think they're just strings of beads or silver. I agree with Lucy, he does look very angry, you might want to soften up his pouty mouth a bit. Also, I would recommend making the purple eyeshadow closer to his skin tone, especially near the arch. As you get farther away from the eyelashes the eyeshadow would blend more into the skin, unless you were going for a very defined edge. The skin color is very lovely though :)

I think the background looks very good so far. I would add more greenery, trees or plants of some kind, behind the balcony railing in front of the wall. Also, you might consider lightening up the wall and column. They're very well done, but a little bit dark if they're actually in sunlight.

I quite like the little scene you've set! <3 Props for attempting a background! It's certainly not an easy task, but the results can be very cool. I think you're doing a very fine job thus far! :D Most atmospheric, with the lovely blue sky and green palm. Makes me want to visit! :]

For CC.. what everybody has said. A few more background details perhaps, some greenery. A vine around the pillar or a potted plant in the corner? :] Perhaps make the palm leaves a little more lush and full.
I don't think the bottom fence/balcony railing really needs to 'connect' to the pillar. It might look a little more natural without the three 'hinges', since otherwise the pillar appears to be in front of the fence.
The fact you've done a gender swap is not immediately apparent. It's rather a subtle change; could be a feminine man or masculine woman. If that's what you were aiming at, then well done! :] But if you want it to be more obvious, you might wish to 'man' him up some more.

All in all tho', a really lovely piece of work! :D

love the background. I still can't tell that's a guy though. I think elongating the face so it isn't so round and giving him some cheekbones or something will help.

i think, on the first one, i would have made his face more angular, rather than blocked like you did... i adore that new background for it. it's gorgeous!

as for the new one, she's very pretty. i love the sparkles! the only thing i can think to offer for help, though, would be to put something sparkly red in her hair/on her head to draw it up. or perhaps some kind of little accessory or something. a fancy cane would suit her well, i think.
