In my opinion the test of a good portrait, is whether you can see enough detail in the face, to be able to guess the expression of the model.  Are they happy, sad, deep in thought, angry, relaxed and so on.  Artists like Ou Chujian make this possible, by providing us with an portrait that is able to emote.  Have a look at the drawings below, to see if you agree with me.
