If the light comes from the upper-left corner, why do you darken those edges as well? they should be lighter. also, if you're perspective is a little from the front, the back edge is to be shorter than the front.

Also, I know this isn't the first thing on your mind right now, but once you've got the perspective correct, you might also want to tint the shadows a little. Because of different lightsources and their whitebalances, shadows are never just black or grey. In an earth-like atmosphere the shadows would have a little blue in them (the direct, yellow sunlight gets blocked out, but the indirect blue light, reflected in the atmosphere still reaches the shadowed area). In a very similar manner, the highlighted area would have a light yellow-orange tint.

The result would look look smth like the attached
