I need critiques on my portrait

This is my first time drawing and shading a portrait and it took more than a week. I need some guidance on the structures of the facial features, lighting and shading conditions, and the hair. I realized that the shading and lighting is abrupt in a lot of areas and I plan to improve upon them in my next go. Thank you to those whoever may reply.

Great drawing! I'd open up the space between the eye brow and upper eyelid. I think her eyes could be a bit larger as well. There is this area called the Faberge-egg ( aka sub-brow egg) dividing the lateral half of the upper eye lid from the lateral half of the eye brow. This sub-brow egg is full in the reference pic and has a soft roundness, form shadow and highlight. The highlight cuts through the hairs in the brow. Also try checking her cupid's angle (straight line from the tip of upper lip and along the outer edge of the nostril and see where it almost touches the outside corner of the eye. May indicate need to reposition the mouth as well. This angle is a great check to do especially if going for likeness. I hope that helps! Your drawing look beautiful!

Thanks for the critique! If you don't mind, what is that head form in the bottom of your photo called? It looks helpful.

I think you need to work on propotions and also you need to bring some more volume in shading
