Okay, i'll try to explain to you what went wrong as easy as possible – i've seen mistakes like that a lot.
You try to draw what you think you see, but not what your eyes really see – sounds a bit weird but let me explain that in another way; Some people draw an eye like an almond with a circle and a black spot, or a face as an oval shape, but thats not how an eye or face looks like – it's what we think it looks like!
So to draw what you see, you need to do something unusual. Flip the picture you want to draw upside down. Try to draw the shapes you see, not the figure that is there. That's how you learn to really draw.
If you just wantto copy a picture in an easier way, try to draw a grid on the picture, and the same grid on a blank paper, and copy the forms inside each grid.
