Portrait Study by akramness Portrait Study by akramness
A portrait of Astrid Berges Frisbey. I was really annoyed that I failed to get her likeness in this painting but I learnt quite a lot from just copying the image - So I shall try more of these for practice 
Lovely Shoujo Emoji (Whew Sigh) [V3]

Your texture technique is mind blowing!
As for your struggle with the likeness, it's in the little details - if you'd look at the original photo, her upper lip is not that plump, and the middle section has a dipper curve to it. From my experience, it's a matter of passing a certain threshold of deconstruction,  where the subject, impressions and concepts cease to exist and there are only colours and lines and angles. It's like the difference between drawing a hand or drawing the negative spaces. it also helps to flip your drawing (if it's digital) or look at it in the mirror (on paper). 
(I hope this tips didn't annoy you)

My pleasure, I'm glad it is ^^
When it comes to realism the phrase to remember is - "draw what you see not what you know"
My most repeated mistake?
reality: face is wide
brain: no way face is wide, it doesn't make any sense, face is narrow.
reality: laughs at my face...

Yep! as far as the brain concerned all this extra data is so irrelevant,
facial recognition - checked, not predatory - checked, now where I can find some food.

Very nice, very realistic crisp features, just watched the original photo and you did a really great job. The only thing I miss, is some freckles on the skin, just a littlebit of texture, but to me its more of a success :)

yeah I think you're right, the source is grainy, and even her makeup covers those subtle skin variation, but if I should vote, I'd still go with some frecks :D
Oh, and check this astrid link, I just love small imperfections Love
