The face is well drawn, but the hand gets kind of lost into the background. My suggestion is to add more color to the background such as browns, purples and even some grey-greens to pull it back from the black leather of the hand. A good way to get black leather to look like black leather is with cool colors such as blues and purples to make it even blacker without having to just use black. I had to really struggle to learn this stuff back when I was drawing more Jareth portraits lol. 
The crystal looks more crystally with more colors in it to give it a prismy look. Blues are a favorite of mine to get the inner shadow down and a white border around the inner circle is good to pull it out from the hand. 
Jareth's hair is nice but don't be afraid to darken it in lighting like the oubliette tunnels. I suggest more gold and tan colors to keep that blonde look with a darker brown towards the scalp. The coat he's wearing is more purple and maroon, and that really shows up in the that darker scene

I don't know if this will help, but a cool tool I found at the local craft stores in the colored pencil aisle is a colorless blender. I've used it in work like this: 40.media.tumblr.com/a35aae5554… to get that smooth look that really looks nice on the finished piece. I've found that water and/or rubbing alcohol when painted onto wax based colored pencils (such as prismacolor) gets a different kind of smooth that works well in pieces like this: s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/7…
