Doorknobs are usually much lower than that.  My only suggestion is too look at a bunch of doors.  Maybe go to a hardware store (or a hardware store website) and look through the different doors, then take what you like.

I like the suitcase, though the black shadow on the top looks out of place.

 :o It's not a suitcase. :P

But ya,I looked a doors but the one I coppied didn't have a door knob.

The two objects are a tool box and a shovel if any one wants to know.

Oops.   :-[  Maybe some extra shine would help that.  Instead of a T for the shovel handle, an enclosed D shape will be more recognizable.

The scale seems wrong.  The shovel should be bigger, and that toolbox is huge.  As for the shading on the tool box, I made a very sad attempt.  Dithering is not my forte.

I think that looks really neat man. Nice way to milk the 1-bit color scheme.

I think if you decide to only use 1bit styledither or at least different dithering techniques play a very important role. Since this piece isn't very small I dont see any reason why you shouldn't make experiments with that. only using standard 25, 50 and 75% percent dithering doesnt really make this an intresting picture and also doesn't help the readabilty of different materialls in your picture
