Proceeding with self-portrait art class exercise

I am working on my shades of grey self-portrait for my NIC art class.

The instructor told us not to worry about a likeness, but to think about facial proportions. I know that the right side eye is smaller and crooked, but I kind of like it, so am not going to change it. I need to do the hair, that will be for tomorrow.
