Thanks for the replies! I went back in and added some contrast, as well as brought some of the background color into the figure and I think I improved it quite a bit.
It's nice, I like the subdued and airy colours.
Here I've made it black and white like I said you should try doing earlier, just so you can see the values instead of just the colours.
You can see because of the shadow coming off the neck that the light source is a strong right-side light, however, the highlighted areas are inconsistant in showing that, so try to make it clear the bits which are hit straight on by the light! This will make certain areas less confusing for the eye to understand.
But basically you're pretty far along anyway. Try looking at it all zoomed out, so it's really small, and see if you can tell just as easily what's going on.
