Looks like all it needed was an adjustment of the light
on the nose, shoulder, arm and a signature.
I took a break for a few days and coming back with fresh eyes made all the difference.
Also turning it upside down and taking photos to compare to the reference photo...
Whatever it takes to fine tune... I use "em all.
I will still come back to this at least one more time and will post any changes.
