The placement of the shadow (?) is a little unfortunate. It looks like she is blowing smoke. Or maybe that's what you intended? Also the lighting on the girl (that I have seen way way too many times) does not match the box.
A couple of things bother me about this picture. In the original (as best as I can tell) she is holding a globe. In this one she doesn't seem to be really holding what looks like a disk. Maybe you could make it look more like a globe, or make it held by magic of some kind? The other thing that might be improved is her right arm. It looks a little odd at first glance.
However you got the idea I think it is brilliant. And very well executed too. Makes me shiver to look at it, but he seems quite comfortable.
Since the boy isn't transparent, shouldn't we see him instead of the background through the costume?
Beautiful! Simply and spectacularly beautiful.
Very creative. Love it.
Thanks! Now we know why she is smiling that way. Perfect choice of sources.
Not a secret, but I didn't do much. I didn't join until near the end, and their schedule didn't work with mine. Even had to quit voting because they kicked me every time I thought a work was worth more than 60.
Yes, I agree completely with Zizounai. And posting sources was voluntary, but we got extra points for doing it.
I'm sure I am not the only person who quit Pxleyes because of the hundreds of rules and the three or four policemen who gloried in enforcing them. Rules only make life harder for people who try to follow rules. They don't make cheaters ethical. Besides, anybody who cheats to win a few pixels of glory has not won anything real. And you certainly haven't lost anything.
