Mid way to , Drawing of little girl. I have added and added tonol value about 10 times. I think i might have got it this time, but who knows I might have to add more tonal value.  Let me know what you think. Ps. There is a bit of outside light on the left end side of my drawing.

Danielle, very well done.  The light might be washing out the value.  However,  just double check the value at the bottom left chin, also the left forehead, compare against the original. You might want to soften the hard edge on left cheek.  The white line takes away from the contour  and makes the side cheek look flat.  Hope that's helpful.
