Heh it's old now, plus I've sort of given up. >.<

I could start a new similar one, but without reference cause I'd literally kill myself if
it isn't perfect ;-;

i'm also a way perfectionist, i can't tell u how many times i've given up on an oekaki
just because i couldn't straighten her eyes, or make her have better lips, or make her
fingures look like- - fingures..
But its good to have refrenceses, because if anything its better to work with a picture so
you can see what you need to work on more.
Like the hair is pretty, but her noes is to big, and it helps u with proportions! ^_^''
i can understand if you want to take a break from realism but you should never give up on
it in general!
Just keep trying! <:D

Anyways, as the person above stated, keep giving it a go every once in a while.  The
secret to good realism from photos is Practice.  No artist that I know was suddenly good
over night. 

With this particular drawing I would say the choice of colouring was well done.  The main
issue holding it back from being realistic is the face proportions.  For me, the nose size
is fine.  The mouth size is well done as well, only it needs to be raised a bit closer to
the nose, just slightly.  The eyes need to be larger and brought further down closer to
the nose.  That was a problem I always did with my drawings.

Otherwise, good luck with your future drawings.
