Hey! Welcome on the forum! You know me already!
But I want to say that your start is already good. I gave you already some tips, but I hope you will get more help from other people because I'm not a teacher :P

Hi and welcome to you.
I think Jean would be perfect for advice in this field as she does the most beautiful digital paintings. You should have a look at her thread, it might help you.
While I know very little about digital painting I think I have a few things to say. Try making thinner straws in the hair,, especially near her cheeks and on the outline of the hair, it will make it look more realistic and less "stiff". Some darker shading in her face will also give the drawing more depth. Oh and some dark eyelids would look amazing on her too and give her a deeper look.
First of all I think it is so fun that there are more people here that do digital drawings. Second of all, i dont believe there is a "right" way to do things and a "wrong" way. Everyone have their own technique, and the beauty with digital drawing is that you have so much more possibilities to draw with a more persionalized technique!
My advice to you is to closely study the colours of the face. There are more colours then you think. in normal light I usually see green, orange, red, yellow, white, pink, grey, blue and sometimes purple. Look closely..Really study the face. It must sound very creepy for the people that are on my waiting list right now, but I study every freckle, every spot, every colour, every vain in the face. I study every distictive hairstraw on the face and head. I say disctictive because you cant draw every straw one by one hahah.
I love sharing tips and such (if they are valuable, i dont know haha) But i think i will stop here. Good luck and keep posting drawings please D: I will not let this digital artist go! xD
