Anyways, you're right. I think I will just draw the background in the same drawing she is in. I will have to cut out the knight, do the lineart, color him and flip him around because, like I said my brain doesn't do drawing right-facing characters easily.
I don't really see the perspective, to be honest. The reason why this angry dude is telling you that she looks like a sticker is probably because you drew her as if the view angle was parallel to the ground, while you made the background at an angle.
You should technically be able to see the top of her head, her face should be at angle, her shoulders should be slanted, and her feet should be more diagonally apart.... if that makes any sense.
I'd love to give you a visual reference but I haven't installed Photoshop on my laptop yet. Suffice to say, she's not drawn at an angle. Just google "How to draw characters with perspective" and you'll probably get a slew of results. What you're specifically looking for is Bird's Eye View, or High Angle as it's called in cinema, I believe.
The rest is just practice.
