Very cool, its really nice.. but the massive forehead is kind of..weird. I dont like the huge head either.. but probably the style, shading looks alright, maybe some more contrast for the clothes

My edit:

I'm assuming this is for an RPG or something that is in top-down perspective, so I've tried to portray more of that effect, you should always want to keep your source of your light on the top, or else it'll look wonky, your side views obviously show that.

Your character still has the perspective issue. He's currently standing as he would if he were in the perspective of a sidescroller.

Again, look at bengoshia's edit to get a feel for what the proper perspective is.

The body is foreshortened the lower it gets, and you can see much more of the top of the character's head.

Perhaps you need some examples, here, look at these sprite sheets:

It looks a lot better already, but shading it different isn't going to change the perspective. You'll have to redraw it, or edit it heavily to get it to be in the right perspective.

The references weren't in the same perspective you need, however, they were not fully 'frontal' perspective, you can mainly tell by foot placement, and the way the body/torso is rotated.
