First Attempt at Portrait Drawing

So I selected this image from the internet because I liked the shadows and angles of her face. I am planning to make a new portrait to upload here next week. This photo was hard to work with because I tried to do it as a front on portrait even though it is actually taken from a little bit above her head. 

I am happy with the portrait that I drew as its own drawing, but I realize that it doesn't correspond to the photograph in many ways. It's also not as darkly shaded as in the photograph ( I couldn't find 4B graphite).

Thanks for looking! I learned a lot about how faces look and how I can approach drawing them. This is the most detailed portrait I have drawn and the instructions were really helpful.
