I think they look good!

The blue doll(?) feels a bit pasted on, it doesn't look like it's sitting. This is for a few reasons:
- It's almost touching the top of the shelf, "tangents" like that feel a little awkward. Maybe have it sit further back, and have the top of its head obscured by the top of the shelf?
- The legs don't appear to be bent, but we're also not seeing the bottoms of the feet.
- It's unclear whether the arms are hanging down or out, and whether they're bent or not.
- The shelf doesn't cast any sort of shadow on the doll, and the doll casts no shadow on the shelf.

Are we seeing the front of the NES controller there, or is that the front of the shelf?

Thank you!!! =D That's the front of the NES controller. It is top-down sort of like Earthbound and Undertale's perspective.

Because it's ambiguous, perhaps you should move the controller back 2-3 pixels, so that the front of the controller and the corner of the shelf don't blend together.
