It's daring to try to draw a face from that angle, and I think you did a really good job!

I think looking into some anatomy of the human body would help you with shadding on the cheekbones and eyes. Great job, though, keep it up.

I think that the simplicity of the shading really shows the emotion. Great job!!

I think you did a wonderful job protraying the emotion on her face, but you really should shade more. And add more detail, especially on the eyes.
