    It feels like we're seeing too much of the underside of the nose, considering the angle of the rest of the face. If you used a reference, can you post it?

    The neck might also be just a tad too wide.

    it's actually previewing really crappy, losing tons of contrast, I'll have to make a darker version for posting

    if you are not confident enough in painting yet I would suggest you refine the line drawing. get crits on the sketch before you color,

    use your sketch as a multiply layer and paint under it. that way at least everything will line up and you can concentrate on tone and color instead of anatomy.

    the face looks wrong because the brow doesn't match. clumps of dark shading create the wrong forms too. also the mix of sharp and blurd painting is distracting to the eye.
