I would not do it. The male has a bad form. This female is not bad but you want a true hm plakat to go with her if you want to breed. Also I would pair her with a fish close to her color. With this male the color on the fry will be all over the place.

flared pics would be really helpful to check rays and lines, ect... I can't really see much other than the male has a nice top line. I'm also not an expert in color crossings.

That guy would be a really good pair towards colour because of the fact that they're both dragons and you're breeding solid x marble. Formwise the female compliments the males topline and will give you nice shaped anals. The downside is they both have rounded caudle edges and that will be passed onto offspring.

For some reason, I can't see the first pictures. But in general, I agree with Victor.

I would be worried about red wash with that male, I have some fry from a copper X turquoise pair and the red wash inherited from the father doesn't look very good on a lot of the turquoise babies. It shows up a LOT more on non-copper babies.

He's a much better candidate, Tan. If Curlyfatbottom is right and you want to breed PK and not HMPK, then you will achieve that with this pair.
If your goal is HMPK you need to start looking for good 180 degree sharp caudal fish as none I have seen from you will give your HMPKs.

Thank you everyone for advice. I think that I have make up my mind. I only want HMPK Fancy (marble with at least 3 color). I love red, white, and blue (RWB) color. That is my goal RWB Fancy Marble. I will try to breed them in March and take them to display during 4th of July at my park :) well if I can have spawn with RWB.
