It would be interesting to compare with your reference. None the less, the line work and shading are interesting.

Lovely! The drawing seems to express a great tenderness of both the subject and you as an artist. Depth, value, edges, shadows, GREAT!

OMG. This is a beautiful sketch. Who cares about the likeness? The gaze is penetrating. What did you use - conte' pencil?
