    very nice! :thumbs2:  great job on the shadow perspective! much better than any of my attempts! :lol 

    a little c&c:

    turn his head to look where he's aiming

    and bend his right leg at the knee to put his foot under him (kinda looks like he's about to fall backward)

    fill in a few of the larger gaps in the shadow

    to improve it the perspective should be less extreme and the legs in a more natural position, to avoid it looking like one leg is bigger than the other and that he is going to fall over backwards. if you try to stand in that pose you'll find it quite difficult.

    here's a photo of him in a similar pose for reference, and again quickly tweaked into similar perspective to yours:

    you can see on the second one that the top half looks ok, apart from the gun, which looks really short. if you imagine holding a gun, you would be pointing it in exactly the same direction that your arm is pointing in, therefore the only time you would ever see a gun dead-on is if the arm was dead-on too, ie. you wouldn't be able to see any of the sides of the arm at all. the legs are definitely out though, not quite pointing in the right directions and the front leg too big.

    If you are trying to figure out how perspective works the best thing you can do is use something for reference. Artists often use these:

    however a toy will do just as well, pose it how you want and then take some close up pictures to get some extreme perspective, eg:

    Hope you find some of that helpful!
