The only thing - IMHO - you need to fix is her hair.
Or better if you just crop it. ;)

Beside the wow and awww I'll give you my opinion. I think what is making your problem with it....Listen up, cause it will be easy, but hard to understand:

Your problem lies in detailbalance contrast. You use too less tonal range onto your skin, making the portrait flat in overall. Your eyes and mouth are on the contrairy very detailed or at least you've made it look that way. Great work; you should keep that! Now the point is...If the eyes looks too detailed against the rest of the face, it will pop-out too much, making an effect like monty python flying circus sketches or like "silence of the lambs". You also have a very straight line all a sudden in the nose on both sides which misses out gentle shades that makes it "bold"; the transition to vieuwers left is too sudden and on the right too less contrasted comparing the skin next to it.

Now you think probably: "#%^#$%#&** never should posted it $%^*,,,,,,,,.........oh well, what can ya do?? ;).

Or you can fix it:

1: make more tonal ranges and bone/facemuscle definition beneath the skin and midflow them subtile, but with a good overall contrast.

2: shade more dark around and against the eyes.

3: Make a less sudden and a bit more curved and broad-darkened transition on the leftside of the nose and stretch it inside and outside the nose a bit.

4: Make a stronger contrast on the right side of the nose, and stretch in and outside the nose a bit again (like a bufferzone). Mind the balance between left and dark side and loosen up the symmetry lines in the nose.

5: Make some tonal play in cheakzones especially.

6: Randomize the skin a bit with circulism, chaos or even direct drawing as if a real skin should look natural. (like you see taints, spots). This to bring detail balance with mouth and eyes. Don't overkill it, but meet it a bit with the eyes, you understand?

7: I would bring a bit more contrast between neck and face to add depth and stretch out the thrown shadow in the tones of the neck to make a not too stronglined shadow.

My guess with this one you took an airbrushed or photo. Now the translations on paper would be indeed true as I know your capabilities. But you need to understand it's random balance. It looks harder then it is; a few hours should do the trick. It is just a possible solution. Look at girls closely in reallife and observe how shadows will walk along the directions the faceflow goes. ;) :D

wow dude....i understand what you are saying.....kinda... but the thing is is that if you compare this to my others you will see it does not stand up to them..... the reason is is cause i quit this drawing half way threw i wasnt happy with it and was planning on starting over....this particular drawing is a throw away......i could care less about it and i actually should never have posted it.....but hey thank you for you comments.....

You know, when I was with my "elven fire queen" on my 5th phase, I was heavily frustrated with it. I lay it aside to later look back to it and suddenly, a cheap adjustment of 1 minute was the answer to it all and the result ended up like one of the best so far that I have ;). What I'm trying to say that you musn't give it up that easely ;). Just try it! No performance and timelimits; the drawing was a waste anyway, right? So just practise and test how flexible you are with errors. If it fails....well you wanted to throw it away anyway, so no big loss. But there is that chance to make it very good!

Listen, I know your talent a bit by know ;). I think you'll be able to fix alot of problems and let the rest go unnoticed. You think I didn't make mistakes? Tons, but I try to balance each other out, like hot compensate cold :).

PS: photo's have unreal qualities and it is up to you to understand that logical sense. You already have it as you do claim it to be irritating bad, which I think it is applecookie, but ok, who am I? It needs only a bit more natural balance and local tonal ranges. Watch you lips and try to re-apply the same gradient for your skin.

great peice, very realistic aswell.

if i want to pick at it though, id say the hair at the top of the picture could use a bit more time on,

but other then that its a really lovely picture, and i am not trying to put it down in any way!

Amazing!
