I like it! My one suggestion is to not ave the puple quite so much in the center. Gives it more character.

Oh, Okay. It looked like charcoal the way it was smudged :) Then instead of charcoal, just push down on the pencil and shade in darker and lighter areas :D

Thank you very much! I did use a pencil, not actual charcoal, so... It just seemed like the best fit.

That's pretty good! :D I really like the way you did the side view of her face! it's hard for me to get the lips and nose right from that angle.

 Some constructive criticism:  When you color the hair, try and use different colors of charcoal, to make it more thick and have volume.  For the eyes, this is a thing I've recently learned, to make the puple a little bigger and then leave a small white circle so that it looks like the light is shining off of her eyes.  

Good luck with your other work! :D
