modelling figures help

Hi everyone, I wonder if any one can help me?
Im trying to make my own birthday cake (!) but am having a little trouble. Its a beach scene with moi laying on a sun lounger, my hubby is buried in the sand while i am served cocktails by a cabana boy (a girl can dream! icon_lol.gif ). Looks good in my head, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to
a) have sugar me laying on the lounger in proportion and;
b) how to have the waiter standing in just his underwear. So that it actually looks like he is standing properly and not backside-less! icon_redface.gif
I have spent the last two weeks trying to make it but each attempt looks worse than the last. I wonder if its becuase im trying to make the people on a much smaller (3 to 4 inches) scale than i usally do. I'm using gumpaste to make everything with. thank you x icon_biggrin.gif

perhaps it would help if you drew your figures on paper to the same scale ... one drawing for a side view, one for top-down ... that might help you solidify your design and give you consistent reference. small humanoid figures are hard!
