    The head seems to large for the body.

    Plus you need to add some hard edges into the picture, at the moment it appears as if its out of focus.

    The shading/blending or the face and hair seem pretty good so far. Nice skin tones.

    Hi
    Nice pic so far

    I agree with Sevans

    Put some reflections in the eyes, study some other paintings of portraits that´s similar to yours if your uncertain of how to paint the reflections in a good manner. You don´t get the reflections from an ordinary photo.

    Hope my advice will be of any help

    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    The problem with the eyes are that the irises are too small. If you make them larger the eyes will look right. The mouth looks a bit off center to me. I don't know if I would change it though, it's a very nicely done mouth. I don't think it's that noticeable. It's a good job overall. I like your choice of background color. Good luck with the rest of it.
    Art gives me a life of extreme challenge, frustration, accomplishment and contentment. Nothing less will do!
