Such good work for only one reply.
I think you did a terrific job, I don't see the need of darker tones as the previous poster pointed at. That would throw it off balance.

Hi Lunatic, take care of the hair. The most important features in a portrait are the eyes and the lips, followed by the rest. So there should be some depth and 'beauty' in them without being distracted by the hair and such. Sometimes it is not a good thing to try and copy down every exact details from the photograph, because painting is painting not photograph. I have this good advice from my lecturer a while back: If you want to paint someone's portrait, make him/her look beautiful even if he/she is flawed in one area or another because everyone wants to look good!

This is a very nice piece - good work.
You don't explain whether you drew it freely with the photo beside you as a reference, or whether you painted over the original photo as a layer.

I don't see much wrong with the hair - the slightly dishevelled look makes the image more dynamic.

I'm bothered by the space between the nose and the inner corner of her left eye (her right from our PoV) - it lacks depth - there is no feeling of a contour there.

I really like that rendered style.
