You could benefit from having a much more constitent inking or lining (whatever you call it)
i can tell that you probably either have the smoothing much too high (use smoothing around 30-50) trust me it will look kind of shit until you get used to it. or you are using the "smoothen" tool waayyyyy too much once you finish a drawing.
also the shading should be more constitent either that or you need to ad more detail to your guys.
maybe that guy has a flatish kind of oval top and your shading is perfect, from my perspective your shading looks rather off considering the light source you are trying to emulate. the shading seems to cut off near the top rather than curving off like your light source implies.
also this is just a personal thing but your shading seems a bit too abrasive, you seems to darken it much too quickly which would be fine if you had minimal shading, but with you shading a good 70% of the character it might be more effective to use much lighter shading, or to colour your lines might help the "really dark shaded" look
i just reshaded your guy using the techniques i listed so you could see what they look like (just the head because i am lazy)
