That last one is really nice.
People forget when drawing eyes , that an adults eyeball is not really that much bigger than a child's but the actual eye shape (lids etc) have grown ,so an adult will have much more white showing than a child will. In a baby ,you will never see the whole iris at once, you often will in an adult.
Also when adding a shine to an eye ,often the shine will overlap the iris and pupil.

One thing I noticed about your lady was that she has no bottom teeth. If you look at yourself in a mirror and try to make your mouth like hers, you will see your bottom teeth a liitle bit too (darker and further back most likely in shadow but still there just a little).
Hope that is useful.

The neck to shoulder connection looks better in your last drawing.  The trapezius is bigger on some people than others (just like any other muscle) and men usually have a more pronounced one than women do.  Yours looks pretty good.  It's just one of those things to look for on your model.

Bodewin Cauthon, thanks.. I never thought about the bottom teeth. Thanks also for the eye info. I may just practice eyes alone for a while.

OMG! I tried hands tonight. What a massacre that was. Makes eyes look easy. Cinnamon, Thanks, too. I think your suggestions have helped me greatly. I like your insperation of doing a drawing a day. I got away from it for a bit but will at least do a doodle a day if I can't do a portrait. Maybe it will take my mind off that brown recon-ed disaster I've been fighting. ..or that red dress that haunts me.
