looking for advice/crits on new pic

Ugh, it's been a fucking long time since I've tried to draw anything more than a simple character shot, so I'm really looking for as much help and advice as I can get on this picture I'm working on. It's a mashup of the manga/anime Bleach and Princess Peach from the mario games, of which I have done before, albeit in a much simpler manner. So:

sketch2-1.jpg

There's a few things that are sticking out to me already, the shy guy (hollow guy?) in the left background needs to have his gaze altered to be obviously staring at Peach, and maybe be given a more interesting pose. Also, I've drawn the pipes from the wrong perspective, since at Peach's head height we'd be above most of them.

Soo... any suggestions/advice/crits would be super helpful.

Also, I'm wondering if anyone has any advice or useful links for colouring night-time scenes? It's not something I've tackled before, but done right I think it'd make this image look a LOT better.

Oh, and any suggestions of other mario items/buildings/stuff I can place in this image (without it becoming too crowded) would be welcome.

    my suggesstion once youve got everything in shot that you need, is to photocopy it at around 30% (or scan and print low opacity) and trace over your image, refining the lines, and considering the thickness (thicker foreground, thinner background). Will add so much more to the shot.

    Also, those drain pipes might work better with an angle of looking down, rather than up

    Its not bad, but it seems like you went way out of you way no to draw feet which throws the perseptive off.
