All painted :D I always keep forgetting just how hard it really is to actually color in all the spaces when you have to work at an awkward angle just to get the brush in the right possition. ... this is why I preffer to work with colored clay, to at least have the basic colors down XD
I did end up doing a repaint once cause I mixed the colors too dark XD
here is 4 possibilites. I guess some relaxed poses were what you imagined? despite there being a log/tree stump in all of them they can easily be replaced by a rock. I tried sketching in both rock and stump in the upper left one indicated by different color ^^
another option to have a more open pose would be the top left having the right hand down braced againt the trunk, head heigh and the left hand reaching towards the side of her face maybe fixing a flower crown or something :)
