Hey Holii, the overall portrait convinces me, it looks “real”, I would add a bit more of the jaw at the right down part of her face though, structure-wise that’s the thing i’d change, the hair looks well, the proportions seem correct, good stuff.
value-wise I would suggest you add more value (get darker) on your block-in. A mid-dark value on the shadows would help the image to pop up and that tells us that the effect of light is happing there.
The biggest issue I see is the features aren’t lined up along the vertical axis. The mouth and chin are banana-ing (curving) off axis. See that? I would watch that in your next drawing. I always think the rule of thirds and the axis are the two biggest things for a front view like this.
Great job! That core shadow on the nose is great! I agree with the previous comments in having a greater seperation between dark and light and utilising structural lines to arrange the feature early on will push you on – keep it up!
