You've got a good dose of natural talent and you've gotten some good technical advice. I can't really add anything useful in that area, so let me take a different tack.
Don't show people everything you draw. I don't mean "Sara", that was quite presentable, I just mean you need some private space in which to make your mistakes. Who learns any skill without screwing up along the way? Have you tried drawing hands yet? Feet? That's hard. You don't need to have your confidence punctured by somebody reacting naturally to a silly-looking foot.
But you need objective feedback to evaluate your progress, right? I remember a sketch I did in which the subject's neck was way too long, like 25-30% too long. I couldn't see it, even though it was pointed out to me. I was way too used to looking at it, if that makes sense. I put it away for a few days, looked at it again, and I was like "Whoa, how did I not see that?"
I call that "fresh eyes". When you are close to being done, put it away. When you pull it out it'll be easier to spot what needs fixed. It'll also be easier to tell when to stop fiddling with it and call it done.
