Looking for Advice on adding some DOF

Hey, I recently began illustrating a web comic that my friend and I are trying to start, and I really don't know the first thing about drawing. I just recently signed up to this forum in an attempt to learn something.


Can I get some advice for shading this in a way that adds more depth of field. The thing on the right side of the panel is supposed to be in the foreground (that's the back of a character's head, in case my mediocre artwork makes it hard to tell). I still want to have the focus be on the character saying "Kalima." Also, that thing wrapped around the log is supposed to be a clay replica of the guy in the foreground. Any advice on making it look more "fake" as compared to the other characters? Currently, it's squiggly and deformed, and a little discolored, but any other suggestions would be helpful.

Basically, I'm just trying to achieve a proficiency that allows whomever is reading the comic to understand what, exactly, is going on in the panel.

    Have you done any life drawings? Experience drawing actual objects will give you the experience needed to draw imaginary things.
