Very good. Just one thing - I think you'd get a better result if you didn't really so much on blending, 'cuz your shadows tend to look kinda smudgy. But even if that's not the case, her body has very few dark shadows, or atleast you didn't make any, which means that it totally lacks contrast.
I'm saying this because if you look at the general value of her hair and then look at her body, it's almost like different pictures. The hair is this very defined piece and then the body is a chunk of blended shadows. By themselves they'd make great drawings, but put together doesn't seem to BLEND so well.
But like I said, the picture is very good the way it is. Keep at it!
It's true I have a little problem with blending. That's because of my lack of tools (or so i want to believe!) The shadows look like that because they were smudged with cotton buds - too small for the space they had to cover. Thank you for the comment!
Sla you did very good
I was glad to read in your journal you taken up drawing again
I have a good tip for blending i use cotton buds too but for
large areas you can also use soft tissue or a make-up sponge
(clean one )

It looks pretty good, you're far ahead of where I was at your age. Without sounding like an @ss, might I suggest that you ditch some of the lines.? They are good for guides, but you should avoid using them to define object boundaries in realistic drawings.
