I'm considering redoing this picture, and I can see some faults with it (His head is not the right size in his hair, I know) but I can't figure out what exactly is making it so...meh. I think I'm going to explore a more interesting composition, but any other help would be awesome.

Medium is charcoal, mainly through erasure, and colored pencils.

I'm not very good in giving concrit for manga-style art, because I usually end up commenting on the ridiculously large eyes and everything else style-related. Well, I could try anyway.
Generally I like the dark mood, so you should definitely keep that in the next version of the artwork. I don't know about the head's size ratio, but the eyes seem to be a bit too up (maybe because of the size - oh darn, I ended up commenting on that again... >_<). Otherwise it's all really smooth and nice to look at.
(Sorry, this is the best I can do right now. Hope it was somewhat better than nothing.)

despite the anime-style of large eyes (bc i draw anime too!) i do agree that they may be placed too high up. there is no room for the brow bone or eyebrows even if they are to be covered by the headband.

Those headband throw me for such a loop (Mainly because for most the character design to work, the characters have to have HUGE foreheads)

I'll work on lowering 'em a bit.
