It looks good! I particularly like the yellowing on the teeth.

 

You might want to try a more mid-toned neutral colored background in the lightbox than just the bright white walls.  The camera's built-in light meter sees all that bright white, and tries to moderate the image, so darkens it, thus darkening the actual subject too much as well.   A mid-toned background will cause the light meter to open the camera's aperture more and your subject will come out brighter.

I'll have to find another backdrop, the only other one I had was black and that was even worse D:

Yes, black will have the opposite effect and open up the lens too wide. I use a piece of light grey or green felt. For a quick make-do, spray a piece of paper or cardboard with grey primer.
