I like this concept but I think your light is a bit too low. Sort of leaning toward the 'horror movie' style.

Needs higher exposure or more area?

The light is coming up from below the subject, shadowing the face that's backwards from what we're used to.

Oh, he means low in that sense.. lol
I was going for that look, but then I had her tilt her head and the style changed.
I think you're right that it should be higher for this shot.

Thanks.

If everything else were the same I would just try positioning the light source a little higher.

While I generally agree with the critiques, don't entirely abandon the technique you attempted. It has a quality akin to table candlelight, which has creative potential. Experiment with head positioning, framing, etc.
