Hey Vasa.

I would pay close attention to both my values and textures.
For example, the hair is reading as a stringy mass without any definition. If you added a definitive light source (is it from the upper left?) and associated highlights on just the hair you would go a long way to giving the ladies head some depth and roundness. The shirt and undershirt are also a bit too grey.

Pencil is IMHO one of the most difficult mediums to control. You can find yourself in a matter of minutes looking at a grey "almost there" mess.

Add some definitive lights, darks and differentiate the various textures (hair, skin, fabric) and you'll have a great piece.

And the values... I'll try to redraw she. :thumbsup:
