    Eraser?

    And not to sound like an ass, but the girl's (your?) noggin isn't entirely accurate also, so maybe a redo is just what the doctor ordered.

    In your second attempt, you may wish to ensure that you have captured the likeness in a line sketch before doing detail shading. There are many differences in the current drawing for a close likeness, and shading makes it difficuly and time wasting to correct.

    Don't be afraid to grid the thing out if you can't seem to nail the proportions. Or do it upside down; you'd be surprised how well that works for the basics.

    Screwing up? You might want to consider letting go of your beginning perfectionITICE. A better way to see things is that you are practicing a way of seeing which evolves everytime you make art. Instead of overworking this one, do many more - many.

    I posted a photoshop treated image that might help you understand some simple values which gives information to form which may help your art making process and end product.

    I am a much greater fan of process, loosing yourself in the work, letting your art be your teacher, let it educate your soul. I like your drawing, you caught something in both sets of eyes that is true - see it? Everything comes from the eyes, do them well, really well, and everything else will follow their lead.
