    Excellent work so far! This really pops out and reads well at that tiny thumbnail size by the thread titles, which is always a good sign. You've captured some of the subtle plane changes in the face really well and the hair looks great. I also like the contrast of your complexion with the dark background.

    I'm thinking you might be able to play with your edges a bit on the left side, to describe the forms a little better. . . your shoulder or perhaps the brow bone/cheek bone area. The hair on the left side, also seems cut off a bit oddly.

    You've accomplished so much in 2 hours already, it would be cool to see a little more time put in to it. Maybe you have a fresh eye on it now that it's been a week?

    agreed. the edge on the left side of the painting (neck) is a bit crisp as well and not helping the form round out..same as the cheek on the left side of the image. lastly, I think the light on the eye on the left is a little strong too.

    check out holbein's heads as he is doing super tight/cleanly painted heads in a similar manner. you will find some answers there as well.

    nice work. keep it up.
