Do you like my drawing? ?

I think I'm a bit to hard with the pencils! So it becomes harder to blend ...

First drawing iv done after years so I'm I struggled a bit.

How can I improve?   

Iv always struggled with the light and shade.

    Try holding the picture up and looking at it in the mirror.  I've found that a lot of errors jump right out at you that way.

    If you struggle with light and shade then go back to basics.

    Look at your subject and pick out the darkest area (squinting at it will help) and start with that. I suspect it will be the area of the face that you have not completed. Then start by making that as dark as it should be everything else will be lighter than that.

    You are going to struggle with the hair if you try to draw it strand by strand, again look for patches of light and dark, establish those and then add a few individual hairs.
