Nice drama! Gutzy!  I would suggest that you bring your key just a bit of lower until a catch light just appears in the eyes.  Without catchlights in the eyes, they look lifeless. (which could be an intentional choice, of course, for dark drama, but for all others, catchlights, even if added in post, like this >

Many thanks, Mike, I really appreciate your feedback.  You are right, the half shaded  eyes were intentional.  I had a reflector boomed to just out of shot with a 30' grid and wanted it in asclose as possible to get the fast fall off.  I like your crop, too :)

Maybe you should keep that a secret?  You don't want people copying your style!  LOL :)
