    does this sketch/thumbnail look ok?

    okay, let me tell you how I want this image when it is complete.

    The trees are supposed to look like they are looming above her.
    I am not sure if the trees and her perspective line up, and I'd apperciate any advice on perspective tips especially at this angle.

    I understand this is a thumbnail,but I don't get the impression that she's a short as a gnome.Here's what I would do,I would change the focus of the picture(I hope thats the right word) so that her full body is in view.

    I've decided to change the perspective, and eventhough it is not showing her gnomelike qualities, i hope its protraying mroe of a looming atmosphere!

    If we're looking up at her, that's going to work against the concept of her being very short, since the viewer is then by implication shorter than her.

    I think that's okay, I was just indicating she was short for the first thumbnails since I was having issues where I could put size-relationship objects?
    The people with I'm working with like this angle so I'm going with it, will update soon!

    figures in 3 pt are very tricky. The foreshortening in the shot is very weak. Her hip bones would be included in the shot. Erase her jaw or neck line for now. I can see you have the right idea but habit won't let you.

    She's just getting flatter and flatter. You need some proper ref.

    The reference I was using not aligned with the background so it came off as a flatboard, after realizing this, I took several photos of myself with the perspective of something looming aboveme.

    Things I need to work on or speculating:

    does her scale need to be bigger?

    I need to fix up everything, right now she is still very flat and stiff.

    heres a wip:
