Diggin this. I know you've just started but some considerations:I'm feelin some atmospheric perspective and breaking up the trail so it's not a straight line. Also, maybe lowering the light part in the canopy so it really frames the head. Perhaps lengthening the frame upwards to emphasize the tallness of the trees but strategically placed diagonal branches to break up all the verticals and serve as leading lines to the figure. All this, and more, can be ignored haha. I like the suggested background vs detailed figure though :)
This is really nice!
