Neve, your background colours work great. Awesome result.

Ali looks like a gentle type of girl, so I tried to do a "soft" look for her.
Here is my attempt.

I made a sketch and then masked in some colour. Removed unwanted clutter. Finished with a Vignette.

Attractive children, obviously from a superior gene pool.
Used filters similiar to what was used with Nathaniel but applied them quite differently. Typical handwork on highlights & shadows.

ok, since ali and the boy are brother and sister, the obvious next step would seem to be to combine the two pictures.
