Q-tips?  Interesting.  Good job with the tones on the face.  The proportions also came off pretty well.  However, some of the shading is really scratchy, such as on the forehead, under the left eye, and in the area between the lips and chin.  Nice job with the darkness of the hair.  The outline on the left side of his face and ear seems unnatural; perhaps you could make it look more natural by having a dark background highlight it?  Good work with the stubble--that must have required some tedious effort.  Is his nose supposed to be crooked?  His mouth seems small and his ears seem high, but that may just be due to the angle used in the photo reference.  Excellent contrast with the eyes--it makes them stand out even more as a natural focal point.  If I were you, I would probably try to increase contrasts and highlights throughout the drawing to make it stand out more than a black-and-white photo would.  The shading in the background uses horizontal lines, so it is kind of boring.  In this case, it may have been better to leave it white since the hair, tie, and jacket are so dark on the subject.  Alternatively, the background can be used to add impact and assist with the energy of your drawing.  Although it may be difficult to get dark shades even with the use of 2B pencils, you can use a very firm table or drawing board to make the graphite go on even more firmly to produce a darker effect.
