Alright. Not too bad here. But some problems that I see. Your damsel here is hard to distinguish. She looks like a long haired dude with a purple moustache. Maybe some more curvature to her frame is needed, typically in the pectoral region. Not much is needed, but a bit more would help. A bit of cheek design/development would help her too. His features are okay for the most part. I am not trying to be too hard here, but this is my take on it. Hope it helps. The blocky style you're working with is a hard one to use to convey these things.
Thank you for the critique, it certainly is very welcome. I agree with many of your points and the woman had to show far more before I overdid it with the shading. I'm still experimenting with it all, just gave my creations fingers and eyes (Though I may redo the eye features to actually fit the style).
