Convincing Composites?

I'm having problems with creating composites that don't look like paper cutouts on a background. What do you folks do to create believeable composites?

Here's an image I'm working with and it's just not right. I created the background with PS' oil paint filter. Should I try creating shadows? Burning around edges? Help!
