    You have a pretty good likeness going already. However, perhaps the face could be more narrow and tapering.Although I do like your interpretation. And her hair - even though you've followed the image faithfully here - needs more width on the middle and lower lhs otherwise it doesn't look balanced or as having good perspective. Without the photo it appears as badly shaped. Sometimes, I notice that artists don't follow realistic images faithfully, but make slight improvements to their aesthetics, and to great effect.
