I kinda like it, the lightning and mood is all nice, but some parts look not so realistic, like his hair, the earring, the toothpick or whatever it is in his mouth, etc. The lineart can also be improved, the whole painting looks a little rushed, but it has alot of potential. Try looking at some referense pics for the earring and such stuff, just google on it. About the background, I dunno really, maybe something that got something to do with the character? He looks a little gangsta-badass, so maybe some part of a city that would be suiting for the character, like some dark walls or something like that. But that could be a little boring too, so I'm not sure what background would work well with the character.
