Alright. Nose too small right now. Needs to be longer, and bigger. Upper lip needs ridge like I thought. Study the eye closely. It has a distinct shape you're not hitting right now.

If you're going with this photo, which has a different angle and direction than the original, I suggest you create a new document and open up the photo next to it in whatever program you're using to make pixel art. Zoom out on the photo until it's close to the canvas, or resize it to the same size as the pixel art, and keep them side by side so you can constantly reference the picture.

It's occurred to me that I don't know anything about shading larger things.

Yet you're doing alright. Perhaps that chin shadow is a bit too stylized for its own good, given that you say you don't have much control in shading large things. Do you want an edit and assorted theory?

Yes please.
While I was trying to define the shadows, I also thought I wanted to work with a blue-ish purple light source.
I didn't try, but I'd like to. I've never used anything but white light before.
