its a nice start, though there is only so much detail you can add at that pixel size

Tried to  fix accordingly to your edit,but with softer shadows and silhouette,and I used a blueish brown on the trunk to make more contrast.Also reduced a bit the highlight zone and added grass;
is it better now?

Main concern is the viewing angle and shape. Looking at the ground it tells we're looking from an above perspective. but the top of the tree isn't. I'd cover a bit more of the branches connecting with the trees crown to enhance that. I like the green palette  :y:

Thats a good approach, but i think the tree trunk is a bit too massive (or treetop too small)
