Out of interest, how many layers are you working on?

probably four

The only tip I can give about shading is to consider the light source.

And I'm only saying that because I'm not clear where it is supposed to be in this pic - if you're saying it's from the top left, then shade under the chin and neck, and where the folds in the clothes/belt would block the light for layers underneath.

Less-is-more for tones, too. Highlights and really dark tones are more effective if they are kept to a minimum. It's up to you if you want 3+ different tones for shades, but I don't think it's worth the effort.
