: First Real Portait!

So this is my first real portrait that I've done. It's done with basic drawing pencils from walmart, on a thicker paper (I did it in a journal, hence the writing on the page to the left of it.)

Critique welcomed!!

Also, how would you recommend sketching out basic outlines?

Here is an example of how I outline a face. There are no lines unless it's hair, shadowing or background. Note the lack of a line on her left side.
