Push the shadows in for the left side leaving the light as a thinner strip off center to the left.
Remove the symetry on the roots, making the left side slightly larger.
Apply more shading to both sides of the trunk, more on the right side.
Make the right side of the trr slightly smaller, effectively making the left side appear nearer.

Thanks but I didn't really understand the first line.

Do you have any tips for the perspective?

All of that was relating to how to get a 3/4 perspective, also, have it pliaced how it would in w/e it's being used for.
e.g.

P.s. rough shading to show you where shadows should go for a 3/4 perspective with something akin to your current lightsource.

EDIT: I could swear on my life that it said 3/4 perspective and not top 3/4 perspective before I posted this.

I gave this a try...I'm no expert at perspective but hopefully you'll find something helpful in my edit.



I think you need to make it look like the tree rounds in at the bottom and connects with the trunk...I changed the blue-grey shading to show this... The trunk should be thinner and curve to meet the foliage...

Hope this helps! _;;
