The proportions measure up well enough, but there is no shading in the face.

One eye will be in light, the other in shadow; there will be shadow beneath the chin and one side of the nose; and one side of the face will be further from the light than the other.

I'll start by saying I am no art critic, just a beginner in drawing.
The eyes are looking great but the rest of the face needs more intensity. You'll need to decide which direction is coming form and use shading to show where there is not light. The contour lines may need to be darker to create more contrast with the shading.
As Alan said, the proportions seem pretty good.

I think it looks good.  One thing that helps me is having a line drawn down the middle of the face to make sure the left/right proportions are the same.  Also, the drawing could use some more contrast.  Keep at it!
