here's something I'm working on for an album cover. Don't know where to take it next, so please don't hold back. Be brutal!

Hey this is looking pretty cool. Seems like some graphic typography would tie it up nicely. The one thing that jumps out at me as a little awkward though, is the blood spatter on his eye... because of the shadows under the eyes being brown, and the blood being a similar shade of red, it makes the splatter look like a port wine birthmark instead. Since you have a hot pink ear necklace, purple slippers, and a blue gun, maybe you could pop the red out a bit more, make it brighter for contrast, maybe not the whole splatter, but just a part of it to stand out.
Also, I can't read where the splatter came from... it doesn't look natural. Seems like it should have more of a projectile direction, right now it looks like the gunsite spit blood in his eye... I like the rest though

I agree with the blood being brighter for contrast. I'm also unsure if thats where the shadow should be. I think it would come to more of a angle. Hopefully someone more experienced could comment soon. Also depending on the genre of the music you could add some more detail to the figures clothing/gear like you did with the Felix the cat button and the ears. Maybe do a homage to one of the bands inspirations ( for example if it was ACDC maybe put a lightning bolt on the gun )

if this is an almbum cover, I'd say don't hold back anything to make it pop. Some strong red /blue (or any warm / cold) rim lighting would really help this pop. it would also help defines the forms alot. and as a personal note, i'd darken those eyebrows.
