    Not bad at all for your first portrait. I think as you get more comfortable with drawing the details will progress. I really like the hair. Nice job making the indiviudal strands stand out.

              If you're interested, here's a book for beginners that might help you a lot in drawing what you see:
              (The New) Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain - Betty Edwards.

              This one is for anyone really, as it's filled with all kinds of exercises:
              The Natural Way to Draw - Kimon Nicolaides.

              They're both classics in their own right. The important thing in either book is that you work on finding a different side of yourself, where you record what you see and feel, rather than what you 'think' you see.
