Me is greatly humbled , but thanks.
You're model is not a far way off it's getting pretty close actually, take a look at this image ( you probably have it already but this one stood out for me)
It could be because of the focal length of the camera but here goes anyways:
-His nose is big but there is a sligt curve in it
-don't work on fine details , I know it's fun and easy in ZBrush but it distracts your eyes from the overall shape, you have to see who it is without the details they are there only to enhance the model even further once you have it down
-I would make the eyesockets slightly smaller
-pull up the top of the head somewhat in Zbrush
-Pull down his chin
-Use the inflate brush to puff out some area's ( brow for instance)they seem a bit flat/harsh to me
-Split up the face in portions ( ie nose, eyes, ears, mouth etc) and use ctrl shift lasso select to omit the other stuff from view this way you only focus on one part until you happy with the overall shape and then go to the other parts, once you have the rudimentary forms in place look at it as a whole.
