    Ronin!

    Something about the perspective is bothering me. The lighting im slowly working out but I'd like some advice on it before I proceed.

    If you are referring to the perspective of the background, then, yes - something is not working.
    If I am correct in assuming those are figures, they are way too close to your horizon.
    It seems you have not established a vanishing point on your horizon.

    The colors in your picture are all over the place,I would suggest working in grayscale before jumping in painting,and get a reference for your figure!

    Given how low our vantage point is, how tall the canvas is, and how much of the canvas is taken up by the main figure, I assume we as a viewer are fairly close to said figure. Assuming those are true, there would have to be a fair amount of pitch on the viewer's end to fully see the figure. With all of those conditions, I would say an aerial vanishing point (a la 3 point perspective), would be necessary. Keeping the vanishing point in mind, you should be able to easily draw the figure if he were standing straight up. Finally, when we take into account that he's running, he should be leaning forward a lot more than in the standing pose. The figure you've drawn does not appear to be leaning forward at all.

    tldr: Look at velocity's photo.
