Hopefully this doesn't stretch the page, but if it does:

I can take harsh critique, by the way.

    It was originally going to be a 'culture not a costume' thing, but I decided that was pretty dumb.

    It's hard to give you any sort of focused critique without seeing a bit of a broader range of your work.
    Post a few more things and we can start to note the bad habits you tend towards and give you some advice that'll help you in general, not just for this piece.
    I hate giving advice on just single pieces it feels to me like it doesn't help much. Giving general advice seems to make more sense to me... or at least it helps me more, maybe I'm just weird though haha

    unlike the talented people above, im all about giving crits on the current piece despite my own deficiencies in the arting area

    i do like the way you drew the nose

    overall i think the structure of the head is off

    - the ears look really lazy (asymmetrical, lacking definition, and not matching up in height, it looks more like headphones than ears)
    - the neck has really sharp angles, particular in relation to the way the shoulders are drawn
    - he looks cross eyed (which while possibility intended, without context looks weird)
    im probably only saying this because im trying to draw the underlying bone structure on some of my doodles and failing miserably, or perhaps my doodles live too close to chernobyl
