Over sharpened... yes
Spotty on the right side... yes
Let's move beyond that stuff im keenly aware of and focus just on the center part of the brow

what do you think for a non-complete retouch thus far??

PS: First real attempt at a male, i typically do females (winK...) his skin wasn't fun nor did the photographer even photograph in flattering light, worst light possible for that type of skin

I think that its silly to post a half done image and then ask everyone to ignore the things that arent finished. Just complete it the way you think it is acceptable and then come back =]

*edit*
Im on my model profile again, sorry.

you completly removed his expression an now it look too flat.
Even a 12 years old male kid will have those wrinkles on his forehead so there's no need to remove them.

it should look like this.
