Awesome work overall, though the shadows could use more work
I see you are making up for any shortcommings in the next one . Want to know a quick shadowing trick. This chop for instance,,,Copy the roo, re-paste with softest edge selection. You want the shadow edge to be as fuzzy as you can make it. Saturate all the way to full black. Grab the black layer at the top and compress down 2/3rds or so. Swap layer to fit behind the roo and reduce density to 15-25%. Set eraser tool to 5% and fade out any areas of shadow that don't look right or leave it if it looks cool. I use that method quite a bit when the image allows
In order to promote their shoes, Reebok hand made several cars shaped exactly like their running shoe models. The cars are part of the Reebok's advertising campaign with slogan "If the shoe fits, drive it", hinting at the speed you can achieve running in the Reebok shoes. This clever marketing move literally "drove" the Reebok UK sales up 5 percent.
