It doesn't look right because you don't understand enough about lighting. There are very specific ways light and shadow behaves, and you need to learn the scientific reasons behind them, or else everything you do as an artist will appear awkward and lack credibility and authenticity.
Start here: http://www.itchy-animation.co.uk/light.htm
And go to the Art T&T subforum (linked below in my signature) and study the sticky threads--they will help you become a better artist.
