i scribbled on this for a while. here's what i think:
you're kind of shading in twotone. everything's either inshadow/notinshadow, and for the shadows you're using one colour and for the lights, all the others. as a result, everything's kind of bulbous and disconnected. you need more midtone.

Let me guess Kaczor, you didn't use a reference? Heres a quick paint over of tocky's edit. I had a picture of a bald guy in front of me when I did it. Humans have so much junk in their brains for recognising faces that you really need a reference to get the features' positions right. Also, there's some stuff you only see when looking at a reference (eg. tops of heads aren't prefect spheres).

Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

No I didn't :D! I wasn't really aiming at realism.
Thanks for the tips. I'm currently working on something but maybe I'll try to improve this when I find time.
Sorry for my english.

Just to clarify: I wasn't saying you have to do it realistic. Even if you keep it cartoony, I believe that a reference can help.
