It's a very cute concept how the two characters are placed next to each other and the poses really fit well. The very first thing that bothered me a little is the fact that the background is green just like the grass and on top of that almost exactly the same shade of green. It makes it rather hard to make out the grass so I would suggest to maybe change the hue of the background a little or simply choose a completely different colour. Maybe a nice sky blue. On the left character I'm having some troubles to distinguish the eyes from the hair, partly because the colour is so similar and partly because the position seems a little off to me. It might help to move the left eye (left for the viewer) down a little bit. Since you categorized it as Pixel Art the automatic gradient of the bg should maybe be replaced by a handmade one, just to make it consistent with the rest. Technically though an Icon of this kind should be categorized as Customization>Icons>Avatars>deviantART anyway and then the automatic gradient wouldn't matter anymore. ^^ Either way it's a lovely piece with a lot of potential and I hope my words could offer you a bit of help.
Best thing to remember is this: Anything but the basic pen tool should be avoided. You might use the line tool here and there or the bucket tool but that's already about it. So anything created with just these tools will be fine.
