Beautiful Bryce feedback

Hello, please, I submitted my drawing to CGTalk, but the art was not accepted... (so sad)

I need help and some critique. I know I'm not so good like a professional artist, but I want comments to improve my next work.

I consider this a finished art, but I want understand the bad points.

Comment please, Thank you.

There are obvious technical problems in your image, such as how the eyebrow hair growth is incorrect (go look in the mirror and see how the hair on brows change direction as it grows from inside to outside), or how the hair strands don't have any volume and look like flat ribbons, as well as stiff and sterile looking instead of soft like how hair should be.

The lighting is also very flat, which is not a problem, but there's no expressive or interesting brushwork in your painting, and the more graphic approach to the rendering isn't refined or graceful enough to look compelling. Basically, the execution is kind of mechanical and lacking a more artistic sensibility. Take a look at excellent portrait paintings and you'll see examples of artistic sensibility. Google images from these well-known portrait/figure painters and study their work:

John Singer Sargent
Pino
Jeremy Lipking
Daniel Gerhartz
Richard Schmid
Morgan Weistling
Susan Lyon / Scott Burdick

my thoughts

nice render, proportions are good. To me the biggest problem is the flat skin tone. I have a tool I use to help fix things when a work isn't working and it's a phrase, "The bigger shape is more important than the smaller shape". In this case the details of the head are nicely rendered but the larger shapes are ignored. Think about a head as an egg, you have to paint the egg to make it look rounded and sphere like first, then paint in the details. That phrase solves most art problems.... if not all.
