I'm going to assume you tried to copy the picture to the left?

Well i'd say that i don't think you actually used the photo for reference enough, you drew more from your head i'd say.
The head in the picture has a prominent upwards tilt and you drew her straight-two quarters view.
Same thing goes for the nose, you can see more of her nose trails in the picture because of her tilt.
Also i don't think you put any effort in to copying the hair, it looks like the hair of an undead banshee. There are many hair tutorials that can teach you how to draw hair using relatively few layers.
Moreover where are her glasses? And her eyes should be looking down not at the viewer.
The left side of her face is a lot more darker because of the shade. In your drawing her whole face is so pale like she was captured with a flash.

I give 3 for the coloring and her lively expression.

A Reference, not a copy. I had no intention of duplicating the photo - I was drawing from my head.
I did not want to redraw the photo but take parts from it (how skin moved around the creases of the mouth and skin colouring, hence reference. Yeah I propably could have worked with the hair, I was more focused on the expression and colouring.

Thank you for your review :D I appreciate your time to look at this.
