    $\begingroup$ Please post images of your current setup and lighting. What render engine are you using? $\endgroup$ – user1853 May 22 '16 at 17:33

    $\begingroup$ You appear to be using Blender internal renderer. There are no shadows on the ground because there is no ground to cast shadows on. If you want shadows create a ground object first. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos May 22 '16 at 18:01

The reason you have no shadows on the ground is:

Because there is no ground!

You don't have any objects that will receive the shadow. Add a plane under your character.

    $\begingroup$ Note also that by default in BI only Spot lamp can make objects cast shadows, and it appears that it isn't present in scene; to make others lamp cause casting shadows Ray Tracing in Shading rollout have to be enabled. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak May 22 '16 at 18:55
