It's hard to tell with the lighting of the photo, but it kind of looks like some of the edges are a bit undefined through shading. It's my personal taste to use more contrasting shades, but everyone has a different style.

The proportions look like they're pretty nicely done and the eyes are beautiful. (You can get away with SO much if you get the eyes right. XD)

It's a beautiful drawing and it seems to give off a sentimental vibe. My opinion would be to have more contrast, but that's ultimately up to you to leave it as is if you like the more mild tones. ^^

I do agree I prefer more contrast too, I guess i worry too much about overworking it

Here's a scanned photo of the portrait

No one wants an advertisement in their threads Steve. Don't you have anything else to add?
