Self-Portrait Pen - Day 329 - Learning to Draw

I intend to begin doing portrait-drawing exercises here. Before I began, I wanted to draw a self-portrait as a reference a) to see how much I improve after doing the exercises for some time, and b) to compare to my self-portraits from earlier this year to see how much I've already improved throughout this just drawing in general.

Here are the two self-portraits I did earlier this year:

I will be doing the future exercises in pencil, whereas my self-portraits earlier were in pen. For a fair comparison, I decided to do one self-portrait in pen, and another in pencil. This is the pen one.

This page took me 27 minutes to draw on the 3rd of December, 2016. It was the first of five pages drawn that day.

Any feedback or advice would be appreciated.
