Low light portraits for C+C

I think you may be on to something, but as-is, these are a little too low-light for my taste.
Of these I think this one has the most impact.
The others are just dark pictures whereas this one has contact, emotion and ambiguity.
I don't think you need so much of it and I think the eye area needs to be lighter so it looks like he's hiding from the light and peering out.

Too dark as in under-exposed. I'd like to see a little more detail and contrast. Maybe not a lot, but some.
