The Right Look

I am still strugling with getting the right look with my work. It seems that a figure is done, until I take a look at it later and notice that something is off. How is it that I can look at a head and it seems good, then upside down or in a picture it is off? My process is to finish, set it in the living room to view it, then put it away for awhile and later bring it out and try to see it in a new light. Pictures really help too. It is frustrating though. But if a figure takes a good picture in any light or background, I know it's good and finished. Right now I am redoing Obama's nose for the 3rd time, and his color is alittle too dark. he has new glass eyes though, and a good body, so eventually he will be done! It is a good thing that I work on a few things at the same time, so I have time for a review of each.
