I feel like it could use more defined nose, eyes and jawline. Maybe less straighter eyelashes depending on what expression or style you're going for. The flesh tones you've picked look good to me. Are you using a reference picture for this drawing?

Then it's a good idea to post it, so once can help better. And describing what you're not happy with.

A blank pose like this will always look a bit dead. So add some expression/character, if you want to breathe more life into it. It's anatomically quite good in my eyes. The indentation next to their right eye might be better a pixel more down. And the transition from the top of the head to the flat side is sharp and could use a bit of rounding (top-right corner of the image).

Thanks Goody! I was referencing beardless Jason Statham. I think the neck is the only thing that looks unsatisfactory now.
