I'm not sure what that means but it sounds like a compliment.

If you would rid the portrait of the hard (thick) outlining and applied shading techniques as others have allready suggested you could totally change things around with this drawing. Drawing portraitures fail or succeed by accurate outlining at the beginning of the drawing and with a good enough shading technique that follows. If you are finding yourself having trouble applying the various shading techniques I can suggest doing a tour through youtube through this link, this helped me quite a bit in a relatively short amount of time.
okay i'll learn from it ^^

Btw i used andrew loomis's proportion and this is what i get

I too am already seeing improvements in your work. One suggestion that might help with your continued improvements to your shading is to look into training around value studies, you can Google the term and find a lot of resources to help you learn how to consciously, for lack of a better term, "see" differently. To sort of look at things with an eye to the shapes generated by the interplay of light and shadow. Best of luck developing your talents.
