Here is the just about finished painting. I need help with the shadow on the car...should I make it warmer?

PS: the picture below is lighter than the digital made it. I will retake it after I figure out what to do.

Sylvielu, I'm sorry that I can't help you--I've only done one standing figure, no vehicles, etc. Can you post the reference photo?

Maybe someone with more experience in this subject will come along.

Sorry!

Perective seems to be off. Viewing the ref pahot might make it easier to help.

Here is the reference photo. First I'd like to say that I KNOW the car is off. The front ent is too long. If I could change it I would have excluded the car.

Still the shadow color is bothering me.

Perhaps your shadow's edges are too hard... You may want to soften the colour a little...

Well, I think it looks pretty cool. :)
The lamppost shadow may be a tad too dark, have you tried lifting some of the color off?
