found something old and dumb
If you unfocus your eyes and look at it, you see that the left side pops forward (the right side of his face), and the middle of the face recedes. This destroys the illusion of depth, and makes his face seem concave.
If you toned down the light and used subtler contrast, I think you could still show light on the side of his face without destroying the illusion of depth.
Remember it's not about drawing what you see; it's about understanding what you see, and then putting it down on canvas in such a way as it will read.

Thanks for your critique/comment on my sketchbook! appreciate it! loving your sketches so far and the new twisted creature. I agree with p. sage on the lighting, mute it out a little, it will allow depth without being so harsh in a way. Stoked to see more from you! your linework is droolworthy
