Nice skin tones and colors, excellent for a first attempt. The problems that I have with your portrait will be resolved in time.

The pinky finger is too fat.
The eyes are too small. There should be 5 eye widths across the face and the eyes should be approximately one eye width apart. I suggest getting a good book on proportions or going to the local store a couple of times and reading up about it if you are too cheap.
The whites of the eyes are a little too white

Other than that, the shirt is excellent and again good pick of flesh tones. I prefer seeing more variance across the different planes in the face.

Keep doing more and you will find yourself getting better in no time!
