Quite clean for pen art !
Also, great aquisition with exressing tension, stress, and surprise.
I particularly like how you shaded in correspondence to the natural wrinkles of skin around the eyes.
Well done for something that is only practice
Being that you're out of practice makes me go wuhh ?
Anywho, there are many things and responsibilities added as we become older, so it's understandable
What matters most is that you're growing as an individual during that time.
There will be moments you can re-visit your hobbies like now !
Don't give up, and keep growing
