    Need help fleshing out an early sketch

    I did a quick little sketch today of a futuristic lumberjack exploring an alien world. Here's what I've got so far.

    How should I go about with the composition?

    Change the perspective, this looks very common, do something out of the ordinary/something unusual

    ^^ what i want to see is like the camra looking up while hes focusing with the torch towards something in front of him, Demonic eyes behind him (small), ugly trees and dirty looking plants and fog

    Make him wear a suit (a strong one)

    BUT FIRST use your imagination, what you want to express is what matters most

    goodluck XD

    P.S. Its still too early to critique on anything you have drawn, use proper lines and post when you feel that it needs some thought ^^

    A second I waste is a second i have to repent for in the future
    But hey that aint stoppin me XD

    I agree with Shuvo here; it's hard to tell where you're going with this piece and the whole picture's kind of noisy. If you have a scanner or a better camera, use that.
    The objects need harmony. The lumberjack and the trees and such don't seem related at all, and it seems sort of like an assorted collection of sketchbook objects. Your anatomy is squished in some portions, and the lumberjack himself is not finished. Tighten everything up and come back here; we'll be waiting.

    I think the camera problems can be attributed partly to the lighting I used.

    I want to try and make the rainforest look very exotic and somewhat beautiful.
    I'll try doing a digital sketch of this using some of the suggestions you guys have inputted.

    Especially concerning the perspective.
