Your portrait has nice framing and posing, but to my eye, the main reason Rob's portrait is much better than yours, is found in the lighting. Rob's portrait is 3-dimensional, while yours is very flat, 2-dimensional. There are plenty of tutorials for smoothing skin, but even with smooth skin, your portrait will not be improved because of the very flat lighting. Lighting is the most important part of creating interesting photos.
