The cheeks look fairly pillow shaded and some of the lines are fairly rough and have banding. You should try hue shifting your colors by changing the hue the saturation and the value when shading.

It's looking pretty good so far!

Right-click the actual image to get the image url..

You're adding way too much detail without cleaning up your lines, there are darker stray pixels, even clusters in strange places.
You should use a lot more contrast and some hue shifting.

Reduce the amount of details to get cleaner shading and make sure the basics like the smiley being round before you move to the next bit.
Eyebrows tend to be important for smileys, but you've added all kinds of wrinkles and details that fight for attention..

Oh piledriver thats interesting :D iv thought of adding a darker color to show the jaw from the face too but I thought of it as a Smiley rounded but then i decided to add realistic features and forgot all about the jaw and , thanks for reminding me of that <3
