It appears his left arm is too narrow.

Take a look at the blue channel and it will show you what's not right about your current WIP - the boy's finger is folded under on the bricks, not the tiny extended pinky in the WIP.

The brick work needs to come up to meet the hand so it isn't floating and you need to put all the shadows back on the arm and on the shirt so it has depth. The shoe laces and grommets can be seen in the blue channel too.

 See if the outlines help show that - on the left over the original blue channel and on the right over your WIP:

Looking good Kim. Kiska and Jo Ann's tips will put it over the top.
