Portrait study in charcoal - A2 - 3h

I've been doing a lot of landscapes lately, I thought I'd go back to value studies and portraits for a change. This is a friend, from a photo reference, about 3h study. I'm quite rusty with charcoal. I did not nail the likeness perfectly though and I think it looks a bit overworked... I think I will be doing a portrait series in the next days - weeks. 
Any critique would be appreciated.
