desperately needed, eh?
Hmm.. it's a nice piece.
Here's a frew comments, though.
"A square line naturally is the outline of a square form. A round line is the outline of a round form. The classic beauty of all drawing is a happy combination or contrast of both these forms. A partially rounded square form or a partially square rounded form adjacent to each other do not produce beauty or style." - George Bridgman
Make sure the bony parts look hard, and the fleshy parts look soft. It helps if you're familiar with the skull and muscles of the face.
How long did you spend on this? Are you familiar with the differences between form shadows and cast shadows?

i spent about 10 minutes on this. i know the principles of form shadow and cast shadow, but have yet to learn them in practice. i think i got the idea of the quote though.
